First life : discovering the connections between stars, cells, and how life began by David W Deamer( )

12 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 1,741 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This pathbreaking book explores how life can begin, taking us from cosmic clouds of stardust, to volcanoes on Earth, to the modern chemistry laboratory. Seeking to understand life's connection to the stars, David Deamer introduces astrobiology, a new scientific discipline that studies the origin and evolution of life on Earth and relates it to the birth and death of stars, planet formation, interfaces between minerals, water, and atmosphere, and the physics and chemistry of carbon compounds. Deamer argues that life began as systems of molecules that assembled into membrane-bound packages. These in turn provided an essential compartment in which more complex molecules assumed new functions required for the origin of life and the beginning of evolution. Deamer takes us from the vivid and unpromising chaos of the Earth four billion years ago up to the present and his own laboratory, where he contemplates the prospects for generating synthetic life. Engaging and accessible, First Life describes the scientific story of astrobiology while presenting a fascinating hypothesis to explain the origin of life."
Light transducing membranes, structure, function, and evolution by David W Deamer( Book )

23 editions published between 1978 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Light Transducing Membranes: Structure, Function, and Evolution covers the proceedings of a joint United States-Australia conference held in Honolulu, Hawaii on December 1977. Organized into four parts encompassing 19 chapters, the book focuses on structural, functional, and evolutionary aspects of light energy transduction by membranes. The first part of the book explores the problems of how membrane-related biomolecules could have evolved prior to the origin of life, how amphiphiles might have become organized in lipid bilayer structures, and what mechanisms may have been available for

The hunt for FOXP5 : a genomic mystery novel by Wallace Kaufman( )

9 editions published in 2016 in English and German and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Genetics professor Michelle Murphy loses her husband under mysterious circumstances and without warning, while their brilliant eight-year-old daughter Avalon, adopted in Kazakhstan, stubbornly believes she is a mutant. As if this were not enough, she soon finds herself thrown into the middle of a quickly thickening plot, where the legacy of Genghis Khan meets the hunt for FOXP5, a genetic transcription factor that could herald the dawn of new human species. Initially caught helplessly between well-meaning fellow scientists, the government, and more sinister agents, Michelle eventually takes control with the help of a host of unlikely heroes and finds the courage to confront the decision of whether to save human lives or humanity
The world of the cell by Wayne M Becker( Book )

11 editions published between 1991 and 2012 in English and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is intended as a comprehensive introduction to cellular and molecular biology for students preparing for careers in biology, medicine and related fields. Its goal is to present essential principles, processes and methodology
The origins of life : a subject collection from Cold Spring Harbor perspectives in biology by David W Deamer( Book )

10 editions published between 1991 and 2010 in English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written and edited by experts in the field, this collection from Cold Spring Harbor Perspectives in Biology provides a comprehensive account of the environment of the early Earth and the mechanisms by which the organic molecules present may have self-assembled to form replicating material such as RNA and other polymers. The contributors examine the energetic requirements for this process and focus in particular on the essential role of semi-permeable compartments in containment of primitive genetic systems
Membrane permeability : 100 years since Ernest Overton by David W Deamer( Book )

11 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Membrane permeability is fundamental to all cell biology and subcellular biology. The cell exists as a closed unit. Import and export depend upon a number of sophisticated mechanisms, such as active transport, endocytosis, exocytosis, and passive diffusion. These systems are critical for the normal housekeeping physiological functions. However, access to the cell is also taken advantage of by toxic microbes (such as cholera or ptomaine) and when designing drugs. Ernest Overton, one of the pioneers in lipid membrane research, put forward the first comprehensive theory of lipid membrane structur

Current topics in membranes. 100 years since Ernest Overton by David W Deamer( )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Membrane permeability is fundamental to all cell biology and subcellular biology. The cell exists as a closed unit. Import and export depend upon a number of sophisticated mechanisms, such as active transport, endocytosis, exocytosis, and passive diffusion. These systems are critical for the normal housekeeping physiological functions. However, access to the cell is also taken advantage of by toxic microbes (such as cholera or ptomaine) and when designing drugs. Ernest Overton, one of the pioneers in lipid membrane research, put forward the first comprehensive theory of lipid membrane structure. His most quoted paper on the osmotic properties of cells laid the foundation for the modern concepts of membrane function, most notably important in anesthesia. This book is designed to celebrate the centennial anniversary (in the first chapter) of Overton's work. Subsequent chapters present readers with up-to-date concepts of membrane structure and function and the challenge they pose for new explorations. Key Features * Provides an historical perspective of Overton's contributions to the theory of narcosis * Presents an overview of each permeability mechanism, including active transport, endocytosis, exocytosis, and passive diffusion

Structure and Dynamics of Confined Polymers Proceedings of the NATO Advanced Research Workshop on Biological, Biophysical & Theoretical Aspects of Polymer Structure and Transport Bikal, Hungary 20-25 June 1999 by Biophysical and Theoretical Aspects of Polymer Structure and Transport NATO Advanced Research Workshop on Biological( )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The primary goal of this book is to explore the physical properties of polymers in confined spaces at the nanometer scale, with a particular emphasis on determining the mechanisms by which polymers are transported through narrow interstices. A variety of pore structures that polymers can penetrate have recently been discovered, and it is now possible to probe the dynamics of the interactions between polymers and the penetrating molecules. The experimental and theoretical advances discussed include: - Mechanical properties of single molecules; - Detection & characterization of single polymers transported through narrow ion channels; - Direct measurement of the energetics and dynamics of polymer transport through a pore; - Statistical mechanical theories for single polymer transport through a narrow pore; - Novel polymer separations techniques not based on cross-linked gels; - Physics of polymer-protein interactions. The book also explores potential scientific and technological applications that can exploit these systems, with the aim of stimulating new research in this highly multidisciplinary field

Structure and dynamics of confined polymers : proceedings of the NATO Advanced Research Workshop on biological, biophysical and theoretical aspects of polymer structure and transport, held in Bikal, Hungary, June 20-25, 1999 by John J Kasianowicz( )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Polymers are essential to biology because they can have enough stable degrees of freedom to store the molecular code of heredity and to express the sequences needed to manufacture new molecules. Through these they perform or control virtually every function in life. Although some biopolymers are created and spend their entire career in the relatively large free space inside cells or organelles, many biopolymers must migrate through a narrow passageway to get to their targeted destination. This suggests the questions: How does confining a polymer affect its behavior and function? What does that tell us about the interactions between the monomers that comprise the polymer and the molecules that confine it? Can we design and build devices that mimic the functions of these nanoscale systems? The NATO Advanced Research Workshop brought together for four days in Bikal, Hungary over forty experts in experimental and theoretical biophysics, molecular biology, biophysical chemistry, and biochemistry interested in these questions. Their papers collected in this book provide insight on biological processes involving confinement and form a basis for new biotechnological applications using polymers. In his paper Edmund DiMarzio asks: What is so special about polymers? Why are polymers so prevalent in living things? The chemist says the reason is that a protein made of N amino acids can have any of 20 different kinds at each position along the chain, resulting in 20 N different polymers, and that the complexity of life lies in this variety
