Molecular Theory of the Living Cell: Concepts, Molecular by Sungchul Ji
By Sungchul Ji
The ebook offers the 1st complete molecular thought of the dwelling phone ever released because the cellphone doctrine used to be formulated in 1838-1839. It introduces into telephone biology over thirty key thoughts, rules and legislation imported from physics, chemistry, machine technological know-how, linguistics, semiotics and philosophy. the writer formulates bodily, chemically and enzymologically practical molecular mechanisms to account for easy residing techniques corresponding to ligand-receptor interactions, enzymic catalysis, force-generating mechanisms in molecular vehicles, chromatin remodelling, and sign transduction. attainable options to uncomplicated and useful difficulties dealing with modern biology and biomedical sciences were urged, together with pharmacotherapeutics and custom-made medicine.

Although chemical reaction-diffusion systems have been claimed to require far-from-equilibrium conditions in order to exhibit self-organization (Prigogine 1980, pp. 103–150), we cannot exclude the possibility that enzymecatalyzed chemical reaction-diffusion systems can self-organize in space and time even at near-equilibrium in living systems due to the nonlinear behaviors inherent in enzymes themselves. If this conjecture proves to be true, the far-from-equilibrium condition of Prigogine may not be universally necessary for biological organizations.
Feasible processes can be divided into two classes – spontaneous and nonspontaneous. Spontaneous processes increase, and nonspontaneous processes decrease, the entropy of the Universe (see Step 2). , the universal constants) affect or constrain the processes under consideration (see Step 3). , Bernard convection cells) (Sect. 1), depending on whether the organization is driven by chemical reactions (encoding chemical information, IC) occurring inside or outside the thermodynamic system under consideration (see Step 4).
C ¼ A or C ¼ B, depending on measurement. We can represent this complementary relation symbolically as shown in Eq. 32 can be read in two equivalent ways: A and B are complementary aspects of C. 33) C is the complementary union of A and B. 34 should be viewed as short-hand notations of the deep philosophical arguments underlying complementarity as, for example, discussed recently by Plotnitsky (2006) and Camillieri (2007). The principles of complementarity and supplementarity defined above may operate not only in physics but also in biology as first suggested by Bohr (1933; Pais 1991).
