The Membranes of Cells
In this new edition, all chapters have been updated, some have been completely rewritten and a new chapter on receptors has been added. The book is designed to give both the student and researcher a synthesis of information from a number of scientific disciplines to create a comprehensive view of the structure and function of the membranes of cells. The book should provide an entry-point to the more detailed literature needed by the researcher. "The Membranes of Cells" aims to: introduce biologists to membrane structure and function; acquaint biophysicists with biological membrane function; provide a view of cell membranes to students, either as a necessary background for other specialized disciplines, or as an entry into the field of biological membrane research; clarify ambiguities in the field.
