About this book

Introduction

Membrane research holds a central position in cell and molecular biology. In recent years it has become clear that the study of membranes at the molecular level is of great importance not only to decipher all cellular processes but also to understand the alterations leading to abnormal cells (including cancer cells) and/or to understand the action of various drugs. This book covers the multidisciplinary approach of research in this area and the permanent need for information regarding recent advances. It will serve both workers studying basic aspects of membrane structure and function as well as medically oriented scientists. The selection of topics illustrating interconnections between basic and applied membrane biology will cross-fertilize research in both groups.
