Cell Physiology Source book
Academic Press, Dec 2, 2012 - Science - 753 pages
Cell Physiology Source Book provides a comprehensive discussion of physiology and biophysics at the cellular level. The book is organized into seven sections covering biophysical chemistry, electrochemistry, metabolism, second messengers, and ultrastructure (Section I); transport physiology, pumps, and exchangers (Section II); membrane excitability and ion channels (Section III); ion channels as targets for toxins, drugs, and genetic diseases (Section IV); synaptic transmission and sensory transduction (Section V); muscle and other contractile systems (Section VI); and bioluminescence and photosynthesis (Section VII).
This text was written for graduate and advanced undergraduate students in the life sciences, including those taking courses in cell physiology, cell biophysics, and cell biology. Selected parts of this book can be used for courses in neurobiology, electrobiology, electrophysiology, secretory biology, biological transport, and muscle contraction. Students majoring in engineering, biomedical engineering, physics, and chemistry may use the book to understand the living state of matter. The text can serve as a reference tool for s postdoctoral scholars and faculty engaged in biological research. Medical, dental, and allied health students can also use this book to complement other textbooks in medical/mammalian physiology.
