Research Descriptions

Ion Channels in Biomembranes

Together with S. Goldman (Chemistry) we have received an NSERC-MRC Collaborative Grant (with P. Backx of the U. of T. Medical School, and R. Guy of N.I.H.), and a MRC equipment and personnel grant, to study ion channels in biomembranes. Together with posts-docs S. Hu and Igor Tolokh and M.Sc. students P. Weetman, G. White, and H. de Haan, we have carried out MD simulations at the atomic level, and examined simple electrostatic continuum models for K+ channels; of especial interest to us are the electrical conductance and selectivity. To perform the simulations, we have constructed a 50 processor Beowulf cluster and also have access to the Guelph-McMaster-Western-Windsor-Laurier SharcNet supercluster. Several papers on this subject have recently been published (see publications page). With undergraduate student Ilya Tolokh and the research group of P. Backx, we have a joint theoretical-experimental program to study cooperativity in the ion conduction process. Several papers have been published (see publication list).

Hamilton Stamp

Development of New Variational Principles

In collaboraiton with G. Karl and V. Novikov, we have filled a centuries-old gap in the literature; ie, the Maupertuis and Hamilton least action principles have been reformulated and completed (in the sense that reciprocal principles have been found for both). A direct connnection of the reciprocal Maupertuis principle to the Schrodinger quantum variational principle has been found. Applications to quantum chaos are currently being pursued (see Nonlinear Dynamics and Chaos below). A review of variational principles in classical, semiclassical and quantum mechanics has recently been published by us in Reports on Progress in Physics.

Water Molecule

Molecular Orientational Structure of Liquid Water Surfaces and Surfactant Monolayers

In collaboration with postdoctorate fellows B. Yang and A. Denton, C.G. Gray and D.E. Sullivan have developed theoretical, simulation, and experimental techniques to study the perferred orientations of water molecules at the surface. The orientational structures of surfactant monolayers on water are also being investigated with former graduate student S. Opps; two papers on this topic have been published (see publications list).

G. Lee-Dadswell, former grad student

Nonlinear Dynamics and Chaos

With former M.Sc. student G. Lee-Dadswell we have published two papers on the quantum chaos of the He@C70 system,based on the techniques developed in "Development of New Variational Principles" as described above. With now Ph.D. student G. Lee-Dadswell and in collaboration with B. Nickel we are studying a classic problem in solid state physics, ie, to explain microscopically Fourier's law of heat conductivity. We are beginning with one-dimensional chains with nonlinear springs, to try to understand the relation between the chaotic nature of the system and the establishment of Fourier's law. We have also studied the bulk viscosity for one-dimensional chains - see publication list.

Supercritical Fluid Extraction (SFE) Monogram

Supercritical Fluid Extraction (SFE)

In collaboration with S. Goldman (Chemistry), M. LeMaguer and R. Lenki (Food Science), and T. Bose and A. St-Arnaud (Physics, Trois Rivierres), we received a strategic grant to develop the theory, laboratory experiments, and pilot plant (lab scale) to use SFE to extract value-added components of certain foods (eg. cumin oil from the seeds). Phase I (with S. Goldman and 2 Ph.D. students) has been completed. Three papers have been published on ab initio molecular theory of the SFE process, and a paper involving practical applications has been published in an engineering journal in collaboration with Feraal Temeli (Alberta) and as part of AFMNET (Advanced Food and Materials Network). We are currently studying extraction by SFE of anitoxidant molecules sucha s lycopene from the skins of tomatos. Bruno Tomberli (Physics Dept, Brandon University) is involved in this project.

Vibrational Dephasing in Molecular Liquids graph

Vibrational Dephasing in Molecular Liquids

In collaboration with S. Goldman (Chemistry) and graduate student Nick Alessi we are investigating the vibrational line shifts of the fundamental and overtones for systems such as pure liquid N2, pure liquid HCl, liquid HCl-Ar mixtures etc. The N2 work has been published (see two papers in publication list).

For a review of this subject, see C.G. Gray's publication list, paper number 141.

Peptide-Membrane Interactions

As part of AFMNET and in collaboration with B. Tomberli, S. Goldman (Chemistry), I. Tolokh, and Ph.D. student Victor Vicharyak and the research groups of D. Pink (Physics, St. F.X.) and T. Beveridge (Microbiology, Guelph), we are studying (by computer simulations and experiment) how small polypeptides such as lactoferricin interact with and destroy bacterial membranes. The potential application is the developement of an alternative to traditional antibiotics, necessary because of antibiotic resistance developed by bacteria.

Antioxidant Electron Transfer Reactions

As part of AFMNET and in collaboration with B. Tomberli and M.Sc. student Zhang Cui, we are studying by molecular dynamics computer simulation the electron transfer reactions of antioxidants such as lycopene with free radicals such as NO2.

Glucose Transport

In collaboration with Mel Silverman (Faculty of Medecine, University of Toronto) and a Ph.D. student, we are measuring and simulating the transport rates for the glucose transporter membrane proteins GLUT1 and GLUT3.

  • 2 Silicon Graphics Indy Workstations
  • 3 2.4 GHz AMD Athlon 64 workstations

Beowulf Cluster Computer

Igor Tolokh of the Guelph Ion Channel Group constructed a 48 processor "baby beowulf" cluster. It is dedicated to ion channel and other protein simulations and is housed in the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Toronto. The Guelph team is part of a Membrane Research Group of Toronto, and all members of the group have access to the Beowulf. Typically, a user employs eight processors in parallel for the simulations.

SharcNet: Supercomputer Clusters

Together with partner institutions Western, McMaster, Waterloo, Laurier, and Windsor, U of G computational researchers have accesss to SHARCNET facilities: twenty supercomputer clusters (8098 CPUs, 14 TB memory, 300 TB hard drive storage). Typical channel simulations use 16 or 32 processors, and speed up the simulations by two orders of magnitude compared to the single processor workstations previously used by the group.
