About this book

Advances in Compararative and Environmental Physiology is intended to help biologists, physiologists and biochemists keep track of the extensive literature in the field, providing reviews and summaries of current work. Cellular volume and osmolality in animals is a well researched subject area and this volume in the series provides the reader with a grounding in this area of physiology. Consisting of two parts, the text discusses osmolality and volume control in terms of both inorganic and organic ions.


From the Contents: Volume Regulation in Epithelia.- Regulation of Brain Volume under Isosmotic Conditions.- Swelling and Volume Control in Brain Astroglial Cells.- Mechanisms of Activation of Regulatory Volume Responses after Cell Swelling.- The Role of Organic Osmolytes in the Regulation of Mammalian Cell Volume.
