This book describes methods being used to investigate the dynamic distribution of specific lipids in membranes and their effects on other membrane components. The contributors present important discoveries that have to do with lipid analysis and lipid interactions with proteins, receptors, transporters and ion channels, even though ion channels are more favored because of the interest of the selected contributors. Various methods, which have been used to study lipid bilayer structure and lipid organization in membranes, include both in vitro membrane systems and in vivo ones, and study membrane proteins in various membrane systems.


Key selling features:

  • Reviews both in vivo and in vitro analytical technologies and methods for studying membrane structure and function
  • Explores how lipid bilayers and membrane proteins interact
  • Includes contributions from an international team of researchers actively studying membrane structure and function
  • Identifies various diseases whose causes are membrane ion channel related
