Chloride Transport in Biological Membranes is a collection of papers that present advances and the state of knowledge in the transport of chloride and other anions across biological membranes. The book includes papers that discuss topics such as the anion transport protein; functional sites of the red cell anion exchange protein; and anion and proton transport through lipid bilayers. Also covered in the book are chloride transport in certain areas such as the renal tubule, the gastric mucosa, and the cornea; the role of sodium in anion transport; chloride reabsorption; and the hormonal control of chloride secretion. The text is recommended for biologists, biochemists, and practitioners in health science, especially those who would like to know more about the processes involved in chloride transport.
