The Movement of Molecules across Cell Membranes provides an understanding of the molecular basis of the movement of substances across the cell membrane by discussing the composition and structure of cell membranes.
Comprised of nine chapters, the book starts by discussing the theory of irreversible thermodynamics to membrane transport, followed by a discussion of the Eyring analysis of diffusion. It then discusses the model for movement into and across the cell membranes. Other chapters focus on the existence of pores in the red cell membranes and the ion movement across the erythrocyte membranes. The book's final chapter considers the four classifications of membrane-based models, which include the mobile carrier model, the pore model, and the two classes of enzyme models.
This book is intended for research students, research workers, biochemists, biophysicists, and physiologists. Pharmacologists in the clinical field, as well as research workers in agriculture, will also find this book invaluable.
