Challenging and provocative overviews are presented in Volume 40 of Current Topics in Membranes. Topics on cell lipids vary from basic themes such as biosynthesis and membrane distribution to the role of lipids in intracellular signaling and membrane flow. This single volume also highlights the roles of lipids in eukaryotic cells and discusses organization of lipids in microdomains.


Biochemists, cell and molecular biologists, neurobiologists, biophysicists, cancer researchers, immunologists, virologists, and physiologists.
