The transport volumes of the Biomembranes series were initiated with Volumes 125 and 126 of Methods in Enzymology, which covered Transport in Bacteria, Mitochondria, and Chloroplasts. Volumes 156 and 157 continued the theme with ATP-Driven Pumps and Related Transport. Cellular and Subcellular Transport: Eukaryotic (Nonepithelial) Cells was the topic of Volumes 173 and 174. The theme of this volume, as well as of Volume 192, is Cellular and Subcellular Transport: Epithelial Cells.


Biochemists, cell biologists, microbiologists, pharmacologists, biomedical scientists, biophysicists, analytical chemists, and physiologists.

@from:Praise for the Series @qu:"The Methods in Enzymology series represents the gold-standard." @source:--NEUROSCIENCE @qu:"Incomparably useful." @source:--ANALYTICAL BIOCHEMISTRY @qu:"It is a true 'methods' series, including almost every detail from basic theory to sources of equipment and reagents, with timely documentation provided on each page." @source:--BIO/TECHNOLOGY @qu:"The series has been following the growing, changing and creation of new areas of science. It should be on the shelves of all libraries in the world as a whole collection." @source:--CHEMISTRY IN INDUSTRY @qu:"The appearance of another volume in that excellent series, Methods in Enzymology, is always a cause for appreciation for those who wish to successfully carry out a particular technique or prepare an enzyme or metabolic intermediate without the tiresome prospect of searching through unfamiliar literature and perhaps selecting an unproven method which is not easily reproduced." @source:--AMERICAN SOCIETY OF MICROBIOLOGY NEWS @qu:"If we had some way to find the work most often consulted in the laboratory, it could well be the multi-volume series Methods in Enzymology...a great work." @source:--ENZYMOLOGIA @qu:"A series that has established itself as a definitive reference for biochemists." @source:--JOURNAL OF CHROMATOGRAPHY
