About this book

Introduction

On February 14, 1977, a symposium entitled "The Molecular Biology of Membranes" was held in New Orleans in honor of Professor David E. Green, whose many contributions in mitochondrial structure and metabolism have influenced and guided research in this important area of biochemistry for many years. The symposium was attended by many former and present-day colleagues, friends, and interested scientists. The contents of this volume represent papers that were delivered at the symposium and other contributions from individuals who have been associates of Professor Green. We wish to thank Plenum Press for their help in making the symposium and publication of this book possible.
