FT-IR studies of molecular conformation in biological membranes

Chapter

Abstract

  • © 1986 by CRC Press, Inc. Elucidation of the molecular conformation of a biomolecule is an important step in determining the relationship between physical structure and biochemical function. The conformation of any biological macromolecule governs the physical, chemical, and mechanical properties of the molecule either individually or collectively, as aggregates. In addition, the elucidation of conformational structure for biological macromolecules invariably leads to insights concerning the function of the molecule.
