Membrane Proteins as Drug Targets book cover

Membrane Proteins as Drug Targets

Membrane proteins continue to be prime drug targets because they perform essential processes in the cell including controlling the flow of information and materials between cells and mediating activities like hormone action and nerve impulses. The study of membrane proteins could lead to new and improved pharmaceutical treatments for a wide range of illnesses such as heart disease, cystic fibrosis and depression.

This volume reviews the latest developments in the field.
