Volume II covers water transport from subcellular systems (subcellular organelles, thylakoid membranes, chromaffin granules) to isolated cells and multicellular barrier systems. Chapters describe: particular features of water transport across erythrocyte membranes, other cellular systems such as the lung cells, Novikoff hepatoma cells, or virally infected cells. Covers water transport in epithelia, theoretical aspects of solute-solvent coupling in epithelia, water permeability of the antidiuretic hormonesensitive epithelia, the corneal-limiting layers, the gill epithelium, and the peculiarities of water transport in arthropods and insects.
