Some antimicrobial peptides are able to diminish the proton-motive force. Experiments have been described in which the transmembrane potential of a rat liver mitochondria and b cytochrome c oxidase vesicles, has been titrated with polypeptide antibiotics of the magainin type. Bioenergetics of the memorization function in the central nervous system is also discussed. Hypothetical phosphor-code for memory formation in the brain is associated specific receptors and high level of free-energy transduction in corresponding brain regions.
Co-evolution of primordial membranes and membrane proteins
It is pointed out that, in general, biological energy conversion is a very intensive process which speeds up the thermodynamic evolution of a closed system and maintains an open system very far from a state of equilibrium. Thermodynamic and biological evolution are not in opposition one to another, because thermodynamic evolution makes possible biological evolution and biological evolution speeds up thermodynamic evolution.
Intensive metabolic activity and human industrial activity as well can be associated with high entropy production.
Instructions as to how to prepare ion-selective electrodes and cytochrome c oxidase vesicles are included in the appendixes, where many useful addresses for Internet molecular biology sites can be found too. Chapters with short description of content 1.
