6.2 Are cylinder ships a dead-end invention?

In 1924 Anton Flettner, a German physicist, tested a prototype of one of his inventions, a rotor ship. An expert in hydrodynamics and aerodynamics, Flettner had already experimented with metal sails, which he found increased sailing ship efficiency by 50 per cent. Next he moved on to an ingenious application of the Magnus effect – the idea that a sphere or cylinder spinning in an airstream develops a force at right angles to the moving air.

1.3 Most receptors are on the cell surface

Water-soluble signalling molecules cannot cross the membrane lipid bilayer, but bind to specific receptors embedded in the plasma membrane. The receptors have an extracellular domain that binds the signalling molecule, a hydrophobic transmembrane domain and an intracellular domain.

Binding of a ligand induces a conformational change in the receptor, in particular that of its intracellular region. It is this conformational change that activates a relay of intracellular signalling molecul
