Asymptotic analysis of the Poisson-Boltzmann equation in biological membrane channels.


The Poisson-Boltzmann equation has been increasingly used for the description of biomolecular systems in order to derive their electrostatic properties. We here consider a domain consisting of two living cells which communicate through a system of proteins which assemble at specific membrane areas building microchannels called gap junctions. We describe the… (More)
