Surface response of a polymer network: Semi-infinite network.

08:00 EDT 24th March 2020 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Surface response of a polymer network: Semi-infinite network."

We study theoretically the surface response of a semi-infinite viscoelastic polymer network using the two-fluid model. We focus on the overdamped limit and on the effect of the network's intrinsic length scales. We calculate the decay rate of slow surface fluctuations, and the surface displacement in response to a localized force. Deviations from the large-scale continuum response are found at length scales much larger than the network's mesh size. We discuss implications for surface scattering and microrheology. We provide closed-form expressions that can be used for surface microrheology -- the extraction of viscoelastic moduli and intrinsic length scales from the motions of tracer particles lying on the surface without doping the bulk material.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The circulation of the BLOOD through the MICROVASCULAR NETWORK.

A perilipin that localizes to LIPID DROPLETS; CYTOPLASM; ENDOSOMES; and PLASMA MEMBRANE, especially in MACROPHAGES. It functions as a transporter of free fatty acids to lipid droplets to promote their biogenesis and growth. It is also required for the transport of the MANNOSE-6-PHOSPHATE RECEPTOR from endosomes to the TRANS-GOLGI NETWORK. Its structure consists of four helix bundles that interact with the hydrophobic lipid droplet surface.

An adaptor protein complex involved in transport of molecules between the TRANS-GOLGI NETWORK and the endosomal-lysosomal system.

A clathrin adaptor protein complex primarily involved in clathrin-related transport at the TRANS-GOLGI NETWORK.

A network of membrane compartments, located at the cytoplasmic side of the GOLGI APPARATUS, where proteins and lipids are sorted for transport to various locations in the cell or cell membrane.
