Protein Physics

Protein Physics: A Course of Lectures covers the most general problems of protein structure, folding and function. It describes key experimental facts and introduces concepts and theories, dealing with fibrous, membrane, and water-soluble globular proteins, in both their native and denatured states. The book systematically summarizes and presents the results of several decades of worldwide fundamental research on protein physics, structure, and folding, describing many physical models that help readers make estimates and predictions of physical processes that occur in proteins. New to this revised edition is the inclusion of novel information on amyloid aggregation, natively disordered proteins, protein folding in vivo, protein motors, misfolding, chameleon proteins, advances in protein engineering & design, and advances in the modeling of protein folding. Further, the book provides problems with solutions, many new and updated references, and physical and mathematical appendices. In addition, new figures (including stereo drawings, with a special appendix showing how to use them) are added, making this an ideal resource for graduate and advanced undergraduate students and researchers in academia in the fields of biophysics, physics, biochemistry, biologists, biotechnology, and chemistry. Fully revised and expanded new edition based on the latest research developments in protein physics Written by the world's top expert in the field Deals with fibrous, membrane, and water-soluble globular proteins, in both their native and denatured states Summarizes, in a systematic form, the results of several decades of worldwide fundamental research on protein physics and their structure and folding Examines experimental data on protein structure in the post-genome era

Protein folding stands as one of the major interdisciplinary challenges of the last fifteen years, involving biology, chemistry, medicine and physics. In this book solvent effects, and the related hydrophobic effect, on proteins are investigated. Using a simple lattice model of proteins, in which the solvent is semi-explicitly taken into account, thermodynamical quantities can be investigated and the crucial role the solvent plays in protein folding can be demonstrated. Of particular relevance is our observation that a simple model, in

This book introduces an approach to protein folding from the point ofview of kinetic theory. There is an abundance of data on proteinfolding, but few proposals are available on the mechanism driving theprocess. Here, presented for the first time, are suggestions onpossible research directions, as developed by the author incollaboration with C C Lin.

"One of the great unsolved problems of science and also physics is the prediction of the three dimensional structure of a protein from its amino acid sequence: the folding problem. It may be stated that the deep connection existing between physics and protein folding is not so much, or in any case not only, through physical methods (experimental: Xrays, NMR, etc, or theoretical: statistical mechanics, spin glasses, etc), but through physical concepts. In fact, protein folding can be viewed as

This book is devoted to the physical and mathematical modeling of the formation of complexes of protein molecules. The models developed show remarkable sensitivity to the amino acid sequences of proteins, which facilitates experimental studies and allows one to reduce the associated costs by reducing the number of measurements required according to the developed criteria. These models make it possible to reach a conclusion about the interactions between different amino acid chains and to identify more stable sites on proteins.

"Milk and products made from it affect the lives of a large proportion of the world’s population. Many dairy products are consumed at times and in places far removed from the point at which the milk was produced. This is made possible by the chemical and physical treatments and fractionations applied to milk by modern technology. These treatments are designed to preserve the nutritional value of the milk constituents in the form of palatable products. As food technology in

This book focuses primarily on the role of interfacial forces in understanding biological phenomena at the molecular scale. By providing a suitable statistical mechanical apparatus to handle the biomolecular interface, the book becomes uniquely positioned to address core problems in molecular biophysics. It highlights the importance of interfacial tension in delineating a solution to the protein folding problem, in unravelling the physico-chemical basis of enzyme catalysis and protein associations, and in rationally designing molecular targeted therapies. Thus grounded in fundamental
