Among the topics are the dynamics of biopolymers and their hydration water studied by neutron scattering, the dynamic crossover phenomenon in confined water and its relation to the liquid-liquid critical point, a critical overview of agent-based models for economics, long-term memory in climate records and the detection problem, light scattering enhancement in porphyrin nanocomposites, effects of medium-chain alcohols on the structure of phospholipid bilayers
, and a dynamical model for operational risk in banks.
From such studies using a variety of biophysical methods, it has been shown that alpha-tocopherol intercalates into phospholipid bilayers
with the long axis of the molecule oriented parallel to the lipid hydrocarbon chains.
1) In PC, two fatty acid chains are attached to a glycerol group that is connected to choline over a phosphate group (Figure 1A); this structure enables the formation of phospholipid bilayers
, which are essential for the structure of cell membranes in all life on Earth.
Among the 13 topics are the spectral assignment of membrane proteins under magic-angle spinning, determining torsion angle, sensitivity enhancement by inverse detection, magnetically aligned phospholipid bilayers
, theory and experiment in chemical shift tensors of nucleic acids, and alkali metal ions in nucleic acids and related systems.
