Functional Organization of Vertebrate Plasma Membrane
Current Topics in Membranes is targeted toward scientists and researchers in biochemistry and molecular and cellular biology, providing the necessary membrane research to assist them in discovering the current state of a particular field and in learning where that field is heading. This volume covers recent breakthroughs in understanding the molecular and cellular basis for patterning vertebrate plasma membranes. A special emphasis is placed on physiological function with chapters covering signaling in the nervous system and heart, vision, and the immune system.
- consolidates subjects normally dispersed in the literature
- presents in one volume a subject that has undergone a recent molecular revolution
- authors are primary contributors and in some cases the founding figures in their fields
