Abstract

The term ‘biological membrane’ is often used in a sense that implies considerable uniformity among different types of membranes. Such uniformity of course, can only refer to some common principles in organisation (structure) but not in function. There is after all no reason to suppose that say carrier mediated transport, protein synthesis, energy coupling or signal transmission all operate by a similar mechanism. It is perhaps the large diversity of membrane functions based on structural similarities that makes research in this area of such current interest.
