Colloid and Interface Science Group. Cucurbit[n]urils (CB[n]s) provide a class of macrocycles that are able to form stable host–guest complexes with various guests.

A wide range of potential guests has stimulated an increasing number of fundamental molecular recognition studies that led to various biomolecular : Emanuela Cavatorta, Emanuela Cavatorta, Luc Brunsveld, Jurriaan Huskens, Pascal Jonkheijm, Pascal Jo. "In vivo" assemblies of biological macromolecules do not always exist in a dilute solution environment - normally far from it - and some attention is paid to the dynamic properties of more.

As a complement to experimentation, molecular simulation a offers uniquely powerful approach to analyze biomolecular structure, mechanism, and dynamics; this is possible becauseCited by: Finch Dynamic properties of biomolecular assemblies Edited by S.

Harding and A. Rowe, The Royal Society of Chemistry, Cambridge, pp. viii +price ISBN For over several decades hydrodynamic measurements have provided a valuable and relatively rapid way of estimating the dimensions of macromolecules-both.

The method allows the prediction of the static and dynamic properties of substances directly from the underlying interactions between the molecules. Because there is no alternative approach capable of handling such a broad range of problems at the required level of detail, molecular dynamics methods have proved themselves indispensable in both /5(12).

Electron microscopy (EM) and electron tomography (ET) have found extensive application to probe structural and dynamic properties of macromolecular assemblies.

As an important complementary to X-ray and NMR in atomic structural determination, EM has reached a milestone resolution of Å, enough for understanding atomic interactions, interpreting mechanism of functions, and for structure Cited by: 1.

The Biomolecular Assemblies and Nanomechanics (BAN) Laboratory is interested in the engineering design behind self-assembled nanoscale structures of semiflexible biopolymers (DNA, aggrecan, and collagen, etc), and in using these nanostructures as physical containers for.

Water has many remarkable properties, including: High surface tension: Despite being denser than water, small objects, such as aquatic insects, can stay on top of water surface. High boiling point: Relative to its molecular weight, water boils at a high temperature.

For example, ammonia, with a molecular weight of alm boils at −33° C, while water, with a molecular weight of 18, boils. 'Biomolecular Crystallography is first and foremost a comprehensive reference text and laboratory manual for the practicing structural biologist, from the basics of biomolecular structure to modern advanced and powerful techniques in biomolecular structure determination, and analysis and application of structural information.

We show that biomolecular circuits based on the dynamics of covalent modification cycles allow (a) the computation of nonlinear operators using far fewer chemical reactions than purely abstract designs based on chemical reaction network theory, and (b) the design of nonlinear feedback controllers with strong performance and robustness by: 6.

The central theme in most of these studies is that the functional unit under study is the protein itself. Recent rapid progress has radically challenged and extended this protein-function paradigm, by demonstrating that novel function(s) may emerge when proteins form dynamic and non-stoichiometric supramolecular by: 7.

Biomolecular Structure and Dynamics describes recent fundamental advances in the experimental and theoretical study of molecular dynamics and stochastic dynamic simulations, X-ray crystallography and NMR of biomolecules, the structure of proteins and its prediction, time resolved Fourier transform IR spectroscopy of biomolecules, the computation of free energy, applications of vibrational CD.

This book is devoted to the engineering of protein-based nanostructures and nanomaterials. One key challenge in nanobiotechnology is to be able to exploit the natural repertoire of protein structures and functions to build materials with defined properties at the nanoscale using “bottom-up” strategies.

Historically linked to the application of lasers to physical chemistry, the activity of the "BioMolecular Structure" group is focussed on the interaction of complex molecular systems with light, in particular, neutral flexible molecules and models of biomolecules, isolated in the gas phase.

The general scientific objective is to document, through various laser spectroscopies and theoretical.

The mechanical properties of materials—how stiff or strong they are, or how easily they fracture—are of great importance for many engineering applications.

Most laboratory tests designed to study these properties are conducted at relatively low loading rates, with the stress on the material gradually increased while the response of the material is monitored.

‘HDX-MS data are most ideally interpreted together with structural information obtained by other techniques. However, it is important to note that even in the absence of structural information, HDX provides useful insights into the dynamic and structural properties of.

I did my own trial to edit an existing CSL, but I need help fine tuning it. I am pasting the csl below I am having a problem with citation. A reference with only 2 authors is sometimes cited as (First et al., year) and sometimes (First & Second, year).Directed motion at this scale is an essential feature of many biomolecular assemblies known as molecular machines, which carry out essential life-sustaining functions of the cell.

It follows that the use of bistable MIMs as artificial molecular machines (AMMs) has been long anticipated.
