Regulation of intracellular pH is vital to all living cells. This symposium covers the control of pH in muscle and nerve cells and the different mechanisms of acid transport across epithelial and other cell membranes. Papers describe the development and application of microelectrodes and various techniques in molecular biology to the study of the mechanisms of protein transport. Also discusses the significance of pH regulation for the action of hormones and growth factors.
