Collective phenomena in blood suspensions [article]

Revaz Chachanidze, Universität Des Saarlandes, Universität Des Saarlandes
For this purpose, model experiment was developed to examine margination caused exclusively by contrast of deformability between two sub-populations of RBCs.  ...  The study is dedicated to better understanding of complex collective phenomena that take place in microcirculation of blood through microfluidic in vitro experiments.  ...  Acknowledgments This thesis was completed thanks to the support of so many people. I consider myself immeasurably fortunate to live this experience.  ...

1997 Biophysical Journal  
MV analysis begins with a model-independent transformation of the time record, thus giving an alternative view of the data (a MV hisogram).  ...  We investigate,4 the latter possibility by examining the effect of Ro 31-8220 on L-type (dihydropyridine-sensitive) Ca channels under normoxic conditions at room temperature.  ...  The apparatus consists of a fused-silica cuvette sealed top and bottom by semi-permeable membranes.  ...

Effects of bilayer asymmetry on nanotube formation and particle engulfment by biomembranes and vesicles [article]

Jaime Agudo Canalejo, Technische Universität Berlin, Technische Universität Berlin, Reinhard Lipowsky
We show that the engulfment behavior depends strongly on the asymmetry of the bilayer, as quantitatively described by the membrane spontaneous curvature.  ...  Second, we study the engulfment of adhesive nanoparticles by vesicles and biomembranes.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS We thank Halim Kusumaatmaja for stimulating discussions during the initial phase of this project and acknowledge support by the Partner Group Program of the Max Planck Society and the Chinese  ...
