Overview

Raess and Tunnicliff's timely compilation of reviews highlights the most recent advances in studying transport processes across the plasma membrane of the red blood cell. These processes are responsible for controlling the accumulation and elimination of solutes vital to the metabolism—and consequent survival—of the cell. Because of the inherent difficulties of the work, most notably isolation problems and organelle membrane contamination, these transport phenomena are hard to study. The red cell, however, offers many advantages, since isolation is simple and yields a pure plasma membrane.

The Red Cell Membrane presents a unified approach to the three fundamental components of major transport processes: structure, function, and consequences of modification, by chemical, pharmacological, and pathological means. Chapters, contributed by experts in the field, present both general overviews and specific, detailed applications.

The Red Cell Membrane provides researchers and clinicians involved in biophysics, biochemistry, membrane pharmacology, and related areas with a highly practical, interdisciplinary discussion of the red cell membrane as a model system. Essential reading for a large variety of specialists!
