Description

Membranes are essential cellular organelles. They not only define cells and other organelles, but also are critical in the cell function by selectively regulating the passage of molecules by acting as a matrix for other signaling molecules, and as conduits of information transfer between the external environment and the cell interior. This series was originally added in 1970 and has since provided a systematic, comprehensive, and rigorous approach to specific topics relevant to the study of cellular membranes. Each volume is a guest edited compendium of membrane biology. This series has been a mainstay for practicing scientists and students interested in this critical field of biology. Articles covered in the volume include History of Ion Channels in the Pain Sensory System; Historical Overview; TRPV1, a Polymodal Sensor in the Nociceptor Terminal; Nociceptive Signals to TRPV1 and its Clinical Potential; Gating, Sensitization and Desensitization of TRPV1; TRP Channels as Thermosensors; ASIC Channels; P2X Receptors in Sensory Neurons; Voltage-Gated Sodium Channels and Neuropathic Pain; Voltage-Gated Potassium Channels in Sensory Neurons.
