Series: Advances in Molecular and Cell Biology

In this serie we hope to capture some of the excitement and vitality that characterizes the state of Molecular and Cell Biology today. We have chosen an approach in which individual researchers at the forefront of cell biology have been invited to highlight some of the most important research and technical advances in their research. While these articles will integrate these advances into the large picture of Molecular Cell Biology research, the authors have not been burdened with the task of reviewing all advances in their fields or assembling an exhaustive citation list from which the reader can develop a bibliography of all work published on a particular topic. Instead, we have tried to choose a format in which individual researchers will do what they do best: to explain the areas in which are shaping that field and influencing the direction of scientific thought and experimentation.
Chloride Movements Across Cellular Membranes

Most recent volume


Volume 38. Chloride Movements Across Cellular Membranes

Published: 8th January 2007
All living cells are surrounded by a lipidic membrane that isolates them from the often harsh environment. However, to take up nutrients, to excrete waste, and to communicate among each other, Nature has invented an incredibly diverse set of transmembrane transport proteins. Specialized transporters exist to shuttle electrically charged ions, positive cations like sodium or negative anions like chloride, across the membrane. In the recent years, tremendous progress has been made in the field of chloride transport. The present book presents the state of the art of this rapidly expanding and interest-gaining field of membrane transport. It is addressed at a broad medically, physiologically, biologically, and biophysically interested readership.
