This volume of Current Topics in Membranes focuses on adrenergic receptor biology, beginning with a review of past successes and historical perspectives then further discussing current general trends in adrenic receptor studies in various contexts.

This publication also includes discussions of the role and relationship of adrenergic receptors to different systems and diseases, establishing adrenergic receptor biology as a needed, practical reference for researchers.


Researchers in biochemistry, molecular and cellular biology.
