Hamburg Photon Science Colloquium | Energy flow in proteins

by David Leitner (Department of Chemistry, University of Nevada, Reno U.S.A.)


Energy flow during chemical reactions in proteins mediates the evolution and rate of the reaction and contributes to regulating the temperature of the cell. I will discuss the nature of energy flow in proteins from perspectives of protein geometry and structural dynamics and compare with results of time-resolved spectroscopic measurements. Thermal transportproperties of proteins provide insights into measurements that appear to indicate local heating arising from chemical reactions in the cell.

Coffee, tea and cake will be served at 1:45 pm.

Please wear a FFP2-mask before, during and after the HHPS colloquium – also at the buffet.
