Biomembrane Transport covers the fundamental principles of biomembrane transport proteins, including thermodynamics and kinetics, structure and catalytic mechanism, and regulation and integration classification. The book considers recent advances in transport protein structure and function, along with established concepts. The importance of biomembrane transport to regulation and interorgan nutrient flows and metabolism is covered, as well as classical and modern techniques for characterizing transport. The book also contains a classification scheme for all known transport proteins according to their functions and amino acid residue sequence similarities. Key Features * Considers recent advances in transport protein structure and function, along with established concepts * Distinguishes the similarities and differences in the mechanisms of action of transport proteins * Provides an up-to-date discussion of the thermodynamics and kinetics of biomembrane transport * Discusses regulation of biomembrane transport * Details the importance of biomembrane transport to regulation and interorgan nutrient flows and metabolism * Contains a classification scheme for all known transport proteins according to their functions and amino acid residue sequence similarities * Presents classical and modern techniques for characterizing transport.
