This is a comprehensive account of the dynamic structure of membranes, including specific properties of membrane proteins and lipids, as well as their mutual interactions. Surveys are presented on the intracellular flow and fusion of membranes during endo- and exocytosis, the trafficking, sorting and recycling of lipids and proteins, and the maintenance of membrane lipid asymmetry. Furthermore, detailed chapters are presented on the biogenesis of organelle structures and the assembly of membrane proteins.
An understanding of the dynamics of cellular membranes is highly relevant to issues such as virus infections, but also to topics like intracellular and transmembrane signalling, cell differentiation and oncogenesis.
