"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. contacts that stitch together large supramolecular assemblies. Indeed, all biological systems can be viewed as dy-namic networks of molecular interactions. 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. E. Harding and A. J. 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.
