Cross-over between first-order and critical wetting at the liquid-vapour interface of n-alkane/methanol mixtures: tricritical wetting and critical prewetting
We find that the initiation, or initial ribosome adsorption binding required for maximal throughput can vary dramatically depending on certain values of the bulk ribosome concentration and diffusion constant.
Ribosome recycling, diffusion, and mRNA loop formation in translational regulation
RNA translation, many of its components can also be adapted to treat mRNA adsorption on endoplasmic reticulum (ER) and ER-assisted translation.
Ribosome recycling, diffusion, and mRNA loop formation in translational regulation
When it is empty, there is a flux due to the microscopic adsorption step onto the first site.
Ribosome recycling, diffusion, and mRNA loop formation in translational regulation
The surface concentration at the sink surface a is reduced from the “bulk” value by a factor of 1 + 4πaD/k , due to adsorption and diffusional depletion.
Ribosome recycling, diffusion, and mRNA loop formation in translational regulation
Proposed mechanisms of ribosome scanning [Jackson 1996], whereby ribosomes attach to segments of mRNA and undergo one-dimensional diffusion before encountering the initiation site, can be adequately modeled with the present approach if one assumes that the rate-limiting step is initial adsorption onto an mRNA segment.
Ribosome recycling, diffusion, and mRNA loop formation in translational regulation
The author especially wishes to thank an anonymous reviewer for correcting an error in the original formulation of the adsorption boundary conditions.
Ribosome recycling, diffusion, and mRNA loop formation in translational regulation
Single component “ribosomes”: The assembly of ribosomes before or during adsorption onto the initiation site can be modeled as an effectively single, rate-limiting component that undergoes standard diffusion in the bulk solution.
Ribosome recycling, diffusion, and mRNA loop formation in translational regulation
More elaborate models that include specified elongation rates pi across the mRNA chain would require extensive simulations for each realization of {pi}. • Bulk diffusion limited adsorption: Ribosomes, or the relevant rate-limiting component of a ribosome, diffuses in bulk and directly attaches to the initiation site.
Ribosome recycling, diffusion, and mRNA loop formation in translational regulation
Capture of the ribosome by the initiation end of the mRNA may occur in a two-step process of nonspecific adsorption from bulk, followed by linear diffusion along a segment of the mRNA, before ultimately interacting specifically with the initiation site [von Hippel & Berg, Stanford et al. 2000].
Ribosome recycling, diffusion, and mRNA loop formation in translational regulation
Such a transition has been observed in thin Co/CoO films and Cu-Al-Mn alloys, and we have recently suggested that it may also be associated to the change in the adsorption behavior of 4He in dilute silica aerogels.

The study of polymer adsorption on a surface is important because of many applications such as in lubrication, adhesion, surface protection, coating of surfaces, wetting, vortex lines, and biology.

Unzipping an adsorbed polymer in a dirty or random environment
Apart from thermal fluctuations and force, disorder (or impurities) in the medium may also induce the adsorption-desorption transition even below the desorption transition temperature.
