Description

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.

Key Features

  • Describes the state-of-the-art in anion transport research
  • Written by leaders in the field
  • Presents a timely discussion of this rapidly emerging and expanding field

Readership

Neuroscientists, physiologists, pediatricians, membrane biophysicists, nephrologists, neurologists, structural biologists.
