Joint Physics Colloquium and MCB Seminar: "Today's fresh sheet: Latest results on demixing of lipids and proteins in membranes"

Seminar: Structural & Quantitative Biology | September 26 | 4:15-5:15 p.m. | 1 LeConte Hall

Sarah Keller, University of Washington

Department of Molecular and Cell Biology, Department of Physics

Abstract: Lipids and proteins in model and cell-derived membranes demix through a reversible phase transition. Micron-scale domains appear below a distinct miscibility transition temperature and disappear above it. This seminar summarizes research published in the past year that measures fundamental parameters of membrane demixing and that probes demixing in new membrane systems.

Carbon–nitrogen bonds are ubiquitous in pharmaceuticals, organic materials, and natural products. These C–N bonds are often incorporated as amines or amides. Despite their prominence, they are often formed in poor atom and step economy.
