51 worldwide leading experts in the field of erythrocyte research contributed to this first book on transport processes in red blood cells. It explains the latest findings on the basis of well-established principles, in an accessibly structured and carefully organized compilation. This book describes our current understanding of the transport of ions, amino acids, nucleosides, sugars, water and gases across the red blood cell membrane. It also outlines the necessary theoretical background to understand the dynamics of membrane constituents together with the mechanisms of transport pathways…mehr

Produktbeschreibung
51 worldwide leading experts in the field of erythrocyte research contributed to this first book on transport processes in red blood cells. It explains the latest findings on the basis of well-established principles, in an accessibly structured and carefully organized compilation. This book describes our current understanding of the transport of ions, amino acids, nucleosides, sugars, water and gases across the red blood cell membrane. It also outlines the necessary theoretical background to understand the dynamics of membrane constituents together with the mechanisms of transport pathways (pumps, channels, carriers/cotransporters, residual passive permeability). Separate chapters describe our present ideas about membrane and metabolic disorders as well as red blood cell diseases like malaria, sickle cell disease, and hypertension. The latest findings are explained on the basis of a historical review and well-established principles. The book and its chapters are thus structured in a manner that makes the material accessible to beginners in the field of red blood cell physiology and biophysics. Active researchers will also benefit from this carefully organized compilation.

Rezensionen
From the reviews:

"Membrane transport is a multi-faceted topic that can be looked at from various angles: biochemical, biophysical, cell biological. 'Red Cell Membrane Transport in Health and Disease' features contributions ... from all of these areas, rendering a rather comprehensive treatise. ... Bringing together chemically and physically oriented membrane researchers, the editors have assembled an impressive and varied body of knowledge that ought to be of interest in any laboratory involved in membrane transport research ... ." (T. A. Lazar, Hämostaseologie, Issue 3, 2005)
