New Book on Membrane Lipids – Methods and Protocols

New Book on Membrane Lipids – Methods and Protocols

This new book on Membrane Lipids contains 22 chapters with step-by-step protocols on current in-vitro and in-silico techniques at the forefront of lipid membrane research.

Membranes and vesicles formed by lipids are integral to all cellular life. Not surprisingly, membrane biophysics plays an important role in understanding biological processes. As noted by the book editor, A/Prof Charles Cranfield, “tough the principles of lipid bilayer self-assembly and deformation are well understood today, the fundamental biophysical dynamics at play between differing lipid types and their association with membrane-interacting proteins and peptides provide many avenues for further scientific discovery.”

This book is part of the critically acclaimed Methods in Molecular Biology book series where experienced researchers share their knowledge and expertise. Each chapter contains a detailed description of a technique or experiment and is supported with helpful notes and tips for troubleshooting.

The newly released book Membrane lipids contains chapters on

  • Methods and strategies associated with the creation and use of lipid membrane model.
  • Electrical impedance spectroscopy strategies and methods to identify how peptides interact with model lipid bilayers or how ions move through peptide-based membrane pores.
  • Protocols to setup and run molecular dynamics simulations of lipid bilayers, membrane-bound proteins, or lung surfactant monolayers.
  • Novel techniques and strategies that explore lipid bilayer characteristics using neutron scattering, IR spectroscopy, and atomic force microscopy.
  • Unique fluorescence techniques to understand the structure and function of cell lipid membranes.
