Channels, carriers, and pumps: an introduction to membrane transport
For students as well as researchers this book describes the exciting new advances in the molecular biology of transport proteins and integrates this information with transport kinetics, function, and regulation. Experimental data are linked with theory. Key Features * Provides an introduction to the properties of transport proteins: channels, carriers, and pumps * Presents up-to-date information on the structure of transport proteins and on their function and regulation * Includes introductions to transport kinetics and to the cloning of genes that code transport proteins * Furnishes a link between the experimental basis of the subject and theoretical model building.
