Neuware - Biological cell membranes regulate the transfer of matter and information between the intracellular and extracellular compartments as basic survival and maintenance functions for an organism. This volume contains a series of reviews that are c- cerned with how epithelial plasma membranes regulate the transport of solutes between the intracellular and extracellular compartments of a cell. This book is also an attempt to analyze the molecular basis for the movement of various solutes across an epithelial cell membrane. This volume is devoted to a diversity of epithelial transport mechanisms in rep- sentative cell membranes of a variety of living things. The rst section of the book (Chapters 1-6) focuses on mechanisms of solute transport in epithelia of inver- brates. The last section which comprises ten chapters (Chapters 7-16) deals with solute transporters in epithelial cell membranes of vertebrates. It is hoped that with this particular ordering the reader can glean a telescopic view of the evolutionary history of the various epithelial solute transporters. 488 pp. Englisch.

Synopsis: The scope of this book was preempted and precipitated by the pioneering studies of Ussing and co-workers. The first phase of the phenomenological description of the cell as a black box has been followed by studies of cellular mechanisms, the interplay of the different transport components, and the mechanisms of regulation which will be covered in the individual chapters. For the individual epithelia transport schemes that have been proposed, I think it is appropriate to take pause and search for elements common to several epithelia. This aspect triggered the common theme idea for this book, and in fact the various chapters emphasize that the functional transporter components, expressed in the various epithelia, are not infinite in number, but they occur in epithelia which are separated in evolution by several hundred million years.
