About this book

This text updates the current understanding of the important biophysical aspects in living systems. Efforts are made to precisely furnish major biophysical aspects associated with structural and functional aspects, starting with water, macromolecules and membranes up to organ systems. Twenty independent research groups, actively involved in unravelling various aspects of living systems through a multidisciplinary approach using biophysics along with biochemistry and molecular biology have shared their experiences with examples in the book. Three chapters on neurobiology have also been included.


Biomolecules in reverse micelles; DNA replication - processes and molecules to meander from molecular biology to biophysics; DNA-reactive ligands - stereochemistry and molecular mechanisms of interaction with DNA; deciphering ionic interactions in peptides and proteins; enhancement of catalytic efficiency of enzymes -structure of a modified serine proteinase at 2.2 A resolution; rubisco folding - a model system for functional investigation of molecular chaperones; bioelectrochemistry of immobilized enzymes; electrophysiology of passive diffusion channels; transport ATPases and regulation of transmembrane proton motive force; sex and drug ATPases in fungi; voltage-dependent potassium channels in the plasma membrane of higher plant cells; transmembrane signalling in light-mediated gene expression - role of phospholipids; ligand-receptor recognition and molecular mimicry; the photophysics and photochemistry of cytochrome-c oxidase; mitochondria in health and disease; structure function relationship in the photosynthetic apparatus - a biophysical approach; thermoluminescence in chloroplasts; neural control of arterial synchronized contractions; application of biophysical correlates to study neural regulation of some physiological phenomena; from neurons to networks - back to square one.
