Summary

Cholesterol in Membrane Models provides the most recent summary available of basic molecular models and experiments in models of biological membranes. The book introduces the cell biology of cholesterol and covers the modeling of cholesterol in model membranes by the mean field and Monte Carlo theoretical methods. The experimental movement of cholesterol into model membranes and phase diagrams of cholesterol in these membranes by nuclear magnetic resonance and by thermal techniques using different lipid chain lengths are discussed. Light and electron microscopy that explore the spatial distribution of cholesterol in the model membrane are covered. The book also examines the use of infrared/Raman and neutron spectroscopy.

Cholesterol in Membrane Models is an excellent learning resource, research tool, and reference for a wide range of experimental and theoretical scientists, including cellular biologists, biophysicists, biochemists, and molecular modelers.
