Mammalian Cell Membranes, Volume 5: Responses of Plasma Membranes compiles broadly based reviews of specific areas of plasma membranes and introduces concepts and techniques from non-mammalian systems that may be useful in the application to eukaryotic cells. This book discusses about the turnover of mammalian surface membranes; influence of the solute environment on membrane; effects of hydrostatic pressure and radiation on cell membranes; and stimulation by hormones and regulation by nucleotides of adenylyl cyclases. Other topics include endocytosis; cell surface and growth in vitro; membranes and aging; host cell membranes in animal virus reproduction; and cytoplasmic membranes in somatic cell interaction and hybridization. This volume aims to provide a background of information and stimulation of interest to specialists and generalists working on mammalian cell membranes.
