Description:This book consists of a series of reviews on selected topics within the rapidly and vastly expanding field of membrane biology. Its aim is to highlight the most significant and important advances that have been made in recent years in understanding the structure, dynamics and functions of cell membranes. Areas covered in this monograph include: Signal Transduction Membrane Traffic: Protein and Lipids Bioenergetics: Energy Transfer and Membrane Transport Cellular Ion Homeostasis Growth Factors and Adhesion Molecules Structural Analysis of Membrane Proteins Membranes and Disease. Biochemistry of Cell Membranes should serve as a benchmark for indicating the most important lines for future research in these areas.
