An analysis is presented of how the permeability coefficient/octanol:water partition coefficient ratio for 33 different chemical substances crossing egg lecithin bilayers depends on the molecular volume of the substances. From this analysis we conclude that bilayers made from egg lecithin behave as soft polymers in their discrimination between permeants of… (More)
This thesis introduces SPONGE, a project developed at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology between October 2006 and May 2007. SPONGE is a workshop model based on immersion, absorption and making connections. The project is both an artistic practice and a method for teaching and learning. My intent in the writing that follows is to give the reader a… (More)
The kinetic properties of the mediated transport of uridine in human erythrocytes are investigated. Different methodological procedures are use to acquire a complete kinetic description of the system...
