Overview

This one-of-a-kind text bridges the gap between basic biochemistry, molecular and cell biology, and organ and systems physiology-providing rich, clinically oriented coverage of the subject. It presents information in an intuitive, user-friendly fashion, continually emphasizing how cell biology concepts apply to physiological processes.

• Uses discussions of molecular mechanisms to lay a foundation for understanding therapeutic interventions.
• Provides frequent examples from systems physiology, pharmacology, and pathophysiology to underscore the clinical implications of the material.
• Includes discussions of recently discovered molecular mechanisms to offer an up-to-date grasp of the field.
• Offers comprehensive discussions of transport processes-which are integral to all physiological processes, yet are neglected in many other cell biology texts.
• Sets mathematical derivations apart in special boxes, so they do not interrupt the flow of the text but are available for reading if desired.
• Features an extensive appendix that includes multiple-choice review questions with answers, a review of mathematical techniques, and a summary of basic circuit theory.
