Topology

Definition

noun, plural: topologies

(Study or analysis of) Configuration of parts or elements


Supplement

Topology is used in various scientific fields. Thus, it may be perceived differently depending on the way a field applies it.

In anatomy, topology refers to the topological approach in studying anatomy, i.e. studying based on anatomic regions and the relations between the structures, and is referred to as topographic anatomy.

In biochemistry, membrane topology is used as a method or analysis to determine and predict the orientation of transmembrane protein in the lipid bilayer.

In ecology, topology is the study of patterns of interconnections in a network system, and specifically called ecological topology.

Cytokine - Receptor concepts

... Receptor/cytokine binding?" I don't think I addressed this adequately. The affinity is determined by the shape, flexibility and electrostatic topology of the receptor and its ligand -- in a molecular sense, how well they fit and how electrostatically sticky they are. The nature of the solvent ...

DNA Topology Question...

I've been given a scenario in which I must determine the Linking (L), ΔLinking (ΔL), Twisting (T), and Writhing (W) values for a plasmid after several modifications and I'm having a bit of trouble. The class does not have a book associated with it, and the searches I've done have yielded either basi...

Re: Enzymes and activation energy.

... shape of the enzyme (I assume you specifically mean its active site). It is more than just shape that is of concern here, it is the electrostatic topology of the active site. Areas of higher or lower electron density relative to the nuclear charge in that region lead to binding or repulsion of ...
