Book Summary

A number of apparently unrelated phenomena is biological systems (e.g., biopolymer aggregation, cell-cell interactions, ion transport across membranes) arise from the special properties of charged surfaces. A symposium entitled 'Electrical Double Layers in Biology' focused on the common features of these phenomena. The papers presented at that symposium are collected here and they illustrate ways in which an understanding of electrical double layers can elucidate a problem in Biology. Partial contents: Donnan Potential and Surface Potential of a Charged Membrane and Effect of Ion Binding on the Potential Profile, An Empirical Relation for the Surface Potential of Phosphatidic Acid Monolayers: Its Dependence on Calcium and the Role of Double Layer Theory, Facilitation of Ion Permeability of Bilayer Membranes and their Phase Transition, Membrane Potential of Squid Axons, Electrical Double Layers in Ion Transport and Excitation, Electrical Properties of Electroactive Bilayer Lipid Membranes, Electrochemical and Macromolecular Interactions at Red Blood Cell Surface, The Myosin Filament, Charge Amplification and Charge Condensation, Long-Range Electrostatic Forces in Cylindrical Systems: Muscle and Virus Gels.
