INTRODUCTION Conformational changes of charged biopolymers induced by cations (e.g., calc ium ions) are important in a variety of biological processes . such as muscle contraction, nerve excitation. gene trans cri ption, and ion channel dynamics.'· Our goal is to understand the mec hanisms of ion association and structure formation in complex biopolymer systems from the interaction of their components. We use hydrogels as model systems for identifying fundamental chemical and physical…
