Membrane Hydrodynamics and Their Role on Protein Interactions

Naomi Oppenheimer

Abstract: Since the 1970s vast research has been devoted to studying the equilibrium properties of membranes as elastic surfaces. Much less attention has been given to their in-plane dynamics, which is crucial for protein function. In this talk, I will describe the basics of membrane hydrodynamics and give a few implications of the results. From a coarse-grained perspective, the membrane could be considered as a quasi-two-dimensional (Q2D) colloidal suspension, where the lipids play the role of the molecular fluid, and the proteins play the role of particle inclusions. We will see a couple of implications of membrane hydrodynamics on interactions between proteins: (1) Hindrance of chemical reactions taking place in a membrane, (2) Fluid mediated self-assembly of ATP synthase proteins in a membrane, or of artificial rotating colloids in a soap film.
