As the first detailed overview of the subject, Tight Junctions brought together diverse perspectives from leading investigators to provide a multidisciplinary overview of the field. Since its publication in 199 2, there has been an explosion of information about tight junctions, p articularly in the area of molecular structure, cell and molecular bio logy, genetics and physiology. The field has advanced so fast and so f ar that it influences many areas of biology and now has practical impl ications for pharmacology of drug delivery and understanding a wide ra nge of diseases altering epithelial permeability.
