    • Abstract


      Lysis of erythrocytes offers an unique opportunity to probe the fine structure of the bilayer as a function of its state of energization. Critical monitoring of the volumes, ion fluxes and related measures in erythrocytes exposed to a variety of milieu and treatments showed that one can critically distinguish the nature of the prelytic perturbations and the proximate forces actually responsible for the disruption of the membranes among surface charge density, elastic energy etc.

      Forthcoming Special issue.

    • To trigger further research on plant mitochondria, the Journal of Biosciences is bringing out a special issue titled "Plant Mitochondria: Properties and Interactions with Other Organelles".

      Plant mitochondria are quite distinct and have unique features, such as a cyanide-insensitive alternate pathway. They also interact with chloroplasts to optimize photosynthetic carbon assimilation.

      Submissions are welcome until 30 July 2023. The contributions can be original articles, short communications, reviews, or mini-reviews on any topic related to plant mitochondria.

      Authors can submit their articles online at https://www.editorialmanager.com/jbsc/default2.aspx
