''The scope and depth of this book are excellent....[with] in-depth reviews that will be of benefit to both novice and expert alike....An excellent text worthy of a place on any self-respecting membranologists book shelf and I recommend it highly.'' - Trends in Biochemical Sciences Molecular Biology of Membrane Transport Disorders comprises the first compilation of papers on the important membrane transporters and ion channels with an emphasis on membrane transport disorders. Internationally recognized leaders in the field provide a thorough understanding of the pathogenesis of clinical conditions that involve derangements in membrane transport processes at the molecular level. This work is a valuable resource for medical and graduate students and researchers in the biomedical sciences, as well as academic physicians in cardiology, nephrology, neurology, and gastroenterology.
