This reference covers the workings of animal and plant cells, including: the structure and function of cell membranes; ion transport; origin of membrane potentials; excitability; structure and function of ion channels and their regulation; synaptic transmission; sensory transduction; muscle contraction, cilia, and flagellae; excitation-contraction coupling; bioluminescence; photosynthesis; metabolism; and signal transduction. There are also chemistry and physics reviews, allowing graduate students to appreciate how cells work, send signals internally, transduce signals from the environment, and communicate with other cells. An appendix features reviews of electricity, electrochemistry, and cable properties of cells.
