Soraya de Chadarevian and Harmke Kamminga It is our aim in this volume to
draw attention to the formation of particular strategic approaches in biology and
medicine centred on molecules. These approaches became prominent in the
interwar period and gained new momentum with the biomedical mobilization of
World War II.1 The identification, production, circulation and uses of molecules in
biological research and in the explanation and treatment of diseases created
new links ...

INTRODUCTION The adaptive immune response is regulated by HLA molecules
of the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) through their interaction with
clonally distributed Antigen (Ag)-specific a(3 T-cell receptors expressed on T-
cells. Antigen-specific T-cell responses are driven by the recognition of HLA-
peptide complexes presented ...

They are complex, heterogeneous objects containing a wide range of large
molecules such as proteins, many small molecules and also some large-scale
structures such as DNA and membrane bilayers. Local molecular motions within
the cell strongly influence the motional averaging of spin-dependent interactions.
The isotropic reorientational motions of molecules far from membranes or other
large structures give rise to nondipolar-broadened NMR lines. Quadrupolar
splittings and ...

Understanding the ocean, the minerals in contact with it, everything that lives in it,
and most of the sensors applied to it at a fundamental level depends on
understanding (and predicting) the detailed consequences of interactions of
small, medium, and large molecules (e.g., ion-water, ion-ion, water-water, ion-site
, water-site, site-site). The ability to describe the underlying structures and to
predict their interactions has become accessible via progress in x-ray
crystallography, nuclear ...

For simple molecules, this decay has an exponential shape, I(t) = I0 e–t/τ, and the
lifetime τ is typically on the order of nanoseconds (10–9 s). The fluorescence
lifetime contains information about the photophysical processes of the fluorescent
molecules and of the interactions of the fluorescent molecules with their
microenvironment. Importantly, the fluorescence lifetime can be affected by the
local microenvironment of the fluorescent molecule. For example, ion
concentrations (pH, Ca), ...

Medicine. for. Physical. Scientists. As evident from the previous chapter, plasma
is a complex medium having a variety of different properties that can potentially
influence living systems. These influences can be purely physical, that is, directly
related to temperature or electric fields for example, or biochemical. They can be
subtle and selective affecting some biological molecules and cells more than
others and, through them, initiating various cascades of biological consequences

he has to say. Rehmann-Sutter starts his analysis by disabusing us of the notion
that all is fixed, stable, and predictable in the human genome. Rather than in a
tightly bound structure, the bases that constitute the sequences are typically
scattered on the DNA molecular structure. In between these bases are other
molecules that don't seem to belong and whose function is unknown. Identifying
the gene ...

integrin molecules. The result is a quick expansion of the thrombus. Platelet
activation and aggregation initiates coagulation cascade by the exposure of the
various blood elements to tissue factor in the vessel wall which results in the
production of thrombin [32]. Thus, the mechanism of acute coronary occlusion

molecules. And yet, an ...
