This book provides a comprehensive treatment of the involvement of plasma membrane redox reactions in the origin and development of biological stress and disease. Thirteen chapters, provided by invited specialists, cover the role of plasma membrane redox systems in cell defence (of plant and animal cells), growth control, antioxidative defence reactions, development of tumour cells, entry of toxins and viruses, reduction and uptake of iron and nitrate, and development of atherosclerosis. Each of these chapters deals extensively with the most recent molecular and cell biological developments in these topics, thereby providing new insights and hypotheses on the mechanisms of action. Overview chapters on the nature and molecular properties of redox proteins identified at the plasma membrane of animal, plant and fungal cells are also included. The book should be of prime interest to researchers and students in the fields of animal and plant physiology, cell biology and medicine.

Editorial Reviews

`This is an outstanding collection of reviews... I did not find a single chapter disappointing. Moreover, it was clearly edited and produced extremely efficiently... extensive referencing... I strongly recommend the book to all who seek a solid grounding in this fascinating field.' Antioxidants & Redox Signaling, 2:2 (2000)
