Membrane proteins continue to be prime drug targets because they perform essential processes in the cell including controlling the flow of information and materials between cells and mediating activities like hormone action and nerve impulses. The study of membrane proteins could lead to new and improved pharmaceutical treatments for a wide range of illnesses such as heart disease, cystic fibrosis and depression.

Membrane Proteins as Drug Targets reviews the latest developments in the field.

Review quote

PRAISE FOR THE SERIES: "Full of interest not only for the molecular biologist--for whom the numerous references will be invaluable--but will also appeal to a much wider circle of biologists, and in fact to all those who are concerned with the living cell."--British Medical Journal
