Thermal and Energetic Studies of Cellular Biological Systems reviews literature on thermal and energetic changes which occur in living organisms. It was commissioned at the suggestion of Dr. Philip Edge of John Wright & Sons and was a natural successor to the 1980 book Biological Microcalorimetry. This volume is restricted to a discussion of energy changes in cellular systems. This book is organized into nine chapters. Each author presents a concise, up-to-date account of his field of expertise. Their topics include the usefulness of calorimetric methods in ecological studies, growth and metabolism in bacteria and yeasts, metabolism and heat dissipation in whole tissues or organs, and animal cells and energy requirements in biological systems. This book will be of interest to people seeking a non-destructive technique for studying cellular system and it can serve as a guide and a reference book to those already active in the field.

The Third International Conference on Synthetic Microstructures in Biological Research (SMIBR) was held in Williamsburg, Virginia, September 9-12, 1991. This book represents the compilation of many of the papers and posters presented at the meeting. Publications resulting from previous SMIBR meetings held at Airlie House, Airlie, Virginia (March 24-26, 1986 and March 20-23, 1988) can be obtained from the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers, Inc. (IEEE) Service Center (908 562-5418). The purpose of these conferences is to provide an interface between the engineering community and those at the cutting edge of biological and related material science. The overriding motive for assembling representatives from these diverse disciplines is clear. Engineers, even in 1986, could manipulate materials over dimensional scales on the order of those critical to biological systems. The devices that emerge from these manipulations could then be tailored to monitor system function more directly with significantly more localization than ever before. Thus, one important goal of the meetings is to provide the detailed specifications required for effective interfacing of devices with biological systems under investiga tion.

The applications and interest in thermal analysis and calorimetry have grown enormously during the last half of the 20th century. These techniques have become indispensable in the study of processes such as catalysis, hazards evaluation etc., and in measuring important physical properties quickly, conveniently and with markedly improved accuracy. Consequently, thermal analysis and calorimetry have grown in stature and more scientists and engineers have become at least part-time, practitioners. People new to the field therefore need a source of information describing the basic principles and current state of the art. The last volume of this 4 volume handbook, devoted to many aspects of biological thermal analysis and calorimetry, completes a comprehensive review of this important area. All chapters have been prepared by recognized experts in their respective fields. The approach taken is "how and what to do and when to do it". The complete work is a valuable addition to the already existing literature.

Health Effects of Cell Phone Radiation will offer a concentrated and up-to-date overview on the effects of radio frequencies on human tissue. While significant advances are being made on many fronts, ranging in frequency from quasi-static to the optical regime, a special emphasis of this volume is on current understanding of biological interactions of cellular mobile communication radiation. The use of cell-phones has experienced phenomenal growth - some estimate that there will be more than 3.5 billion users of these wireless devices by the end of 2010, worldwide. The widespread impact of these new wireless technologies has raised concerns about the safety of human exposure to radio-frequency (RF) energy emitted by these telecommunication devices. A better understanding of the biological effects of RF electromagnetic field is needed to safeguard against possible harm to the general population. Fortunately in recent years there has been a resurgence of research interest in achieving a quantitative understanding of the relationships between the biological effects of RF radiation and the physical variables that may cause them. A significant number of results have and are beginning to appear in the literature. This volume reviews and assesses the biological effects of exposure to electromagnetic fields from wireless communication technology.

Nanometric Functions of Bioenergy

Nanometric Functions of Bioenergy Author Paulo N. Correa

Could there be an intimate physical relationship between the molecular structure of DNA/RNA with its protein machinery, and the nanometric structure of the energies deployed by biological systems? What are these energies? Do they always bear mass? Are they always affected to mass? And what is the nature of that intimate physical relationship? What defines a biological system? Do disorder and entropy always increase in parallel? Does negentropy have a physical sense? Is there an energetic specificity to the living, or is biological specificity merely and solely molecular? Are there submolecular specificities to the living? These insistent questions are fundamental problems of molecular and submolecular biology which the present book - Volume One of the Foundations Aetherometric Biophysics - addresses from an entirely novel perspective. The authors develop the aetherometric method and introduce the reader to its application in the nanometric domains of bioenergetic physics, biochemistry, systems theory, and molecular biology. What emerges is a very different view of Life and living systems than has been proposed by previous theories of Biology - be they stochastic, mechanistic, deterministic, or vitalistic, mystical or animistic. Even the topic of the submolecular properties of water is explored anew - well beyond present-day nanochemical understanding. From the massfree energy level, to the submolecular, the molecular and the cellular, Nanometric Functions of Bioenergy tracks the imprints of complex and subtle energies responsible for biological submolecular functions and the creation of structure on both micro and macro scales. Living systems may, at last, be analytically grasped in their functional complexity as systems capable of superimposing very different types and orders of energy, both electromagnetic and nonelectromagnetic, in polar regimes of assemblage - in short, as systems of superimposition, accumulation and interconversion of energy.

The first section of this volume consists of five chapters to the nature of membrane transport systems. A chapter on secondary active glucose transport has been omitted because this topic is slated to appear in the Nephrobiology module. Chapter 6 deals with oxidase control of plasma membrane proton transport, while chapter 7 addresses the question of how cell volume is regulated. Although we chose not to have a separate chapter covering additional co-transport systems namely, Na+ -K+ -2CI-, KCI, -HCO-3, as well as CI- -HCO-3 exchange and K+ and CI- movements through channels, the role of each in cell volume regulation is emphasized in Chapter 7. Instead of devoting an entire section to the thermodynamics of metabolism, we thought it desirable to have the subjects of medical imaging and NMR of cell metabolism discussed in some detail in two chapters. These are followed by a chapter on the thermodynamic instrument - the calorimeter. Calrimetry allows the measurement of net changes of heat in cells, tissues, organs and whole body. As will be recognized, heat dissipation does not arise only from chemical reactions but also from interactions between macromolecules and conformational changes in protein complexes and mass Ca2+ movement such as that occurring in contracting skeletal muscle. The last chapter provides an account of equilibrium and non-equilibrium thermodynamics and the enthalpy balance method. It reveals that calometric measurements are useful in studies of clinical and toxicological problems.
