Prepared by leading scientists in the field, these volumes compile for the first time, concise, up-to-date reviews of several aspects of the basic properties, distribution, function and regulation of the Na+/H+ antiport. In addition, current methods and the use of inhibitors and ligands for the study of the exchanger are described. These volumes are indispendable to researchers and students in the areas of ion transport, membrane biology and cellular physiology.
