Abstract : The theory and phenomenology of cellular sodium/potassium ion distribution and thermodynamics of allosteric transitions. The phenonomenology of cellular sodium/potassium ion distribution was described by a simple Ising model. Using of synchrotron radiation to study the chemicophysical states of metal ions in cells and ion-protein interactions. Invention of time-resolved X-ray absorption spectrometer and its applications to study the protein dynamics and dynamics of ion movements in ion channels. Development of a technique for preparing a bulk phase of uniformly oriented ion channels in multilayers of lipids so that ion channels under electric field can be studied with spectroscopies and small-angle scatterings. Also included in this report is in index of all technical reports generated from the research.
