D4: Molecular Structure, Function, and Dynamics – 17002
(2 hrs/week; 2 CP; Fall 2023)
This lecture series leads towards the understanding of the structural and functional aspects of biological membranes by covering broader topics of molecular structure, function, and dynamics, of both membrane and non-membrane proteins. It gives further insight into the diversity of membrane constituents and into their structural analysis by xray, nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, and electron microscopy. Moreover, the thermodynamics and kinetics of lipid-protein interactions monitored by means of different biophysical techniques are discussed.
