Description

An up-to-date review of basic research on biomembranes.

In this volume, foremost experts in the field consider the most important aspects of signal transduction across biological membranes:

- General Mechanistic Patterns of Signal Transduction - Receptors for Neurotransmitters and Peptide Hormones
- G Proteins in Signal Transduction
- Membrane-associated Protein Kinases and Phosphatases
- Phospholipases in Signal Transduction

The volume is an excellent supplement to 'Biomembranes - Physical Aspects' and 'Biomembranes - Structural and Functional Aspects', also edited by Meir Shinitzky. These three books together provide a comprehensive ground for understanding complex physiological processes.

Meir Shinitzky, Ph. D., is Professor of Biophysics in the Department of Membrane Research and Biophysics, The Weizman Institute of Science, Rehovot, Israel. Since 1971, his research has focused on various aspects of membrane structure and dynamics.
