The book is organized in three parts, the first of which deals with membrane probes and model membranes. The second part describes the use of advanced quantitative and high-resolution techniques to explore the properties of biological membranes, illustrating the key progress made regarding membrane organization, dynamics and interactions. Using fluorescence spectroscopic methods, we compared the membrane properties of intact fibroblasts from both normal subjects and patients with Huntington disease (HD). Cells were stained with various fluorophores, including 1-anilinonaphthalene sulfonic acid (ANS), 2-toluidinylnaphthalene sulfonic acid (TNS), 1,6-diphenyl-1,3,5.

Nuclear magnetic resonance, NMR, and its imaging modality, MRI, have found numerous biomedical and clinical applications but still suffer from limited functional resolution.

The main objective of the Membrane Protein Structural Dynamics consortium is to obtain a mechanistic understanding of how the structural dynamics of membrane proteins generate its function. The experimental study of structural dynamics is approached with a variety of spectroscopic methods and biophysical procedures that are in constant. We have investigated the deuterium (2 H) nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectra of two 2 H-labeled fluorescence probes (trans,trans,trans-1,6-diphenylhexa-1,3,5-trienes, DPHs) incorporated into model lipid bilayer membrane systems at various temperatures. The membranes consisted of multilamellar bilayers of 1,2-dimyristoyl-sn-glycerophosphocholine (DMPC) containing varying concentrations.

Kim and her group propose to do this with a powerful suite of spectroscopic tools, including steady state and time-resolved resonance emission spectroscopy (fluorescence, phosphorescence, and UV resonance Raman) along with fluorescence correlation spectroscopy. Membrane proteins are believed to comprise roughly 30% of all cellular proteins, and. Spectroscopy is the study of the interaction between matter and electromagnetic radiation as a function of the wavelength or frequency of the radiation. Historically, spectroscopy originated as the study of the wavelength dependence of the absorption by gas phase matter of visible light dispersed by a can also consider matter waves and acoustic waves as forms of radiative energy, and.

The optical spectra of molecular membrane probes can be interpreted terms of the structure, dynamics, and the physiological state of the membrane.

The general picture we have of membranes and of the properties of the proteins imbedded in them, has, arguably, emerged directly from probe studies over the last 20 years. This work is designed to make these techniques accessible to a broad audience.

Pyrene (Fig. 1b) is a polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon notable for its spectroscopic properties, namely the unusually long fluorescence lifetime (> ns in a variety of solvents and membrane systems) and ability to form to these distinctive features, both free pyrene and pyrene-labeled lipids have been used in membrane biophysics studies (Somerharju ).

Abstract. Raman spectroscopy is a valuable tool for qualitative and quantitative polymeric membrane characterization. The interactions among the functional groups, chain orientation, structural changes upon treatment/modification, and interfacial properties of the polymeric composite are some of the interesting information that can be revealed from the Raman spectra.

Fluorescent probes have been employed for more than half a century to study the structure and dynamics of model and biological membranes, using spectroscopic and/or microscopic experimental approaches. While their utilization has led to tremendous progress in our knowledge of membrane biophysics and physiology, in some respects the behavior of bilayer-inserted membrane probes has.

Fluorescence spectroscopy and its applications to the physical and life sciences have evolved rapidly during the past decade. The increased interest in fluorescence appears to be due to advances in time resolution, methods of data analysis, and improved instrumentation. With these advances, it is now practical to perform time-resolved measurements with enough resolution to compare the results.

Thakur, A. Das and A. Chakraborty, RSC Adv.,4,   Dense homogeneous PPO membranes were prepared by casting a solution, which consisted of PPO, TEMPO (spin probe), and 1,1,2-trichloroethylene solvent.

The solvent was evaporated at 22, 4, and −10°C. Membranes were subjected to EPR spectroscopic study as well as to the permeability measurement of various gases, including O 2, N 2, CO 2, and CH. To understand the chemistry of membranes, ideally one needs access to multiple length scales simultaneously, using probes that are non-invasive, label-free and membrane-interface specific.

ESR Spectroscopy in Membrane Biophysics Dr. Marcus A. Hemminga, Wageningen University Dr. Lawrence J. Berliner, University of Denver Membrane proteins offer the greatest challenge in structural biology, and there is an urgent need to develop and apply new biophysical methodologies that are able to generate detailed structural information.

Techniques include: Cryo-electron microscopy, atomic force microscopy, differential scanning calorimetry in the study of lipid structures, membrane potentials and membrane probes, identification and quantification of lipids using mass spectroscopy, liquid state NMR, solid state NMR in biomembranes, molecular dynamics, two dimensional infra-red.

An alternative approach involves the use of extrinsic “probes”. These are small molecules which are introduced into the system, preferably at specific “sites”, and can serve as a “handle”, again mainly through their spectroscopic properties, for following biochemical events associated with specific regions of membranes.

Here the use of phosphorescence (triplet) probes for measuring the rotational diffusion of intrinsic and extrinsic membrane proteins will be described.

Besides yielding information on internal fluctuations within the protein, this technique enables the measurement of comparatively slow rotational diffusion (> Pa s = 1 cp), i.e., in.

Solid-state NMR (ssNMR) spectroscopy is a special type of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, characterized by the presence of anisotropic (directionally dependent) interactions. Compared to the more common solution NMR spectroscopy, ssNMR usually requires additional hardware for high-power radio-frequency irradiation and magic-angle spinning.

The last 10 years have seen an enormous growth in our understanding of the molecular organisation of biological membranes. Experimental methods have been devised to meas­ ure the translational and rotational mobility of lipids and proteins, thereby furnishing a quantitative basis for the concept of.

A spin probe is molecule with an unpaired electron that can associated to another molecule and can be used with electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy to identify lipid membrane dynamics.

Common species include nitroxide radicals associated with either the hydrophilic headgroup or the hydrophobic chains of the lipid molecules that can then be identified by EPR to.When bound to the membrane the dye also exhibits concentration-dependent fluorescence changes.

The potential-sensitive response of the dye in Na(+),K(+)-ATPase membrane fragments after addition of MgATP in the presence of Na+ ions cannot be explained by a purely electrochromic mechanism.
