Proteins can move around the membrane. The protein does move: the membrane is a liquid crystal and has fluid behaviour. Specifically this is due to the membrane being in a gel-state. This gel state allows phase behaviour which means that the protein is able to move around on the surface by a similar process. This is often referred to as the fluid mosaic ...

I’m no physicist, but your statement “To my knowledge statistical mechanics and thermodynamics exist when we have an ensemble of particle such as in a liquid or a gas” is surely incorrect. The problem of protein folding is one of thermodynamics — finding the structure of lowest free energy, and the path by which it is reached from a random coil. One of the ...

I always used the book "Enzyme Structure and Mechanism" by Alan Fersht. (Structure and Mechanism in Protein Science: A Guide to Enzyme Catalysis and Protein Folding is the latest version, published in 1998.) Both in some courses I did and when working on (complex) enzymatic mechanisms. It's a classic (so a bit old maybe), but it covers all the basics and ...

As far as I know you can either adjust the ampere or the voltage as both is dependent of the resistance from the buffer. Which means that I would suggest you to let the voltage as it is. As the ampere = voltage / resistance and voltage = resistance * ampere and as you can see that the voltage has to get higher if the ampere is increased and the ampere has ...

The absorbed dose describes the amount of radiation absorbed by an object or person, i.e., the amount of energy that radioactive sources deposit in materials through which they pass. The units for absorbed dose are the radiation absorbed dose (rad), or better: the gray (Gy) unit. One gray dose is equivalent to one joule radiation energy absorbed per ...
