About this book


This practical volume brings together a broad range of topics related to membrane biology research with particular emphasis on novel approaches, technology platforms, and emerging tools in this area of study. Beginning with chapters pertaining to artificial or designer membrane mimetics that can be utilized for in vitro studies of membrane-lipid interactions, it then continues by covering the approaches and methodologies to directly investigate membrane protein structure, localization, and dynamics.  Written for the Springer Protocols Handbooks series, this collection focuses on in-depth, hands-on protocols from experts in the field. 

Authoritative and cutting-edge, Chemical and Synthetic Approaches in Membrane Biology serves as an ideal guide to researchers investigating the vital properties of cellular membranes.
