The Membrane Free Energy The Membrane Free Energy The idea: solve boundary problem for protein embedded in membrane (Huang, Andersen and others). We use elasticity theory and can thereby compute the energy as a function of protein shape. Bending:

A Simple Elastic Model: Membrane- A Simple Elastic Model: Membrane- Induced Line Tension Induced Line Tension Presence of ion channel deforms the surrounding membrane – free energy cost. Opening of channel leads to reduction in potential energy of loading device – that is an energy benefit. Channel gating and the loading device. Channel gating and the membrane free energy.
