Cell Membranes provides a concise introduction to the structure and function of biological membranes. Cell Membranes begins by explaining the composition and dynamics of cell membranes discussing the diversity, structure, and distribution of lipids and membrane proteins and their effect on the shape and transformation of membranes. The text then explores the role of the membrane in transport, signaling, and metabolism. Cell Membranes is a valuable resource for advanced undergraduate students, graduate students, and professionals.
