[Stefan Bröer; Carsten A Wagner] -- This text represents the first collection of transport-associated diseases. Each chapter is devoted to a particular disease and describes the role of the transporter under physiologic conditions. "Membrane transport is a multi-faceted topic that can be looked at from various angles: biochemical, biophysical, cell biological. ‘Red Cell Membrane Transport in Health and Disease’ features contributions from all of these areas, rendering a rather comprehensive treatise. . About this book. Introduction. When the six of us gathered to start planning for what was to be the Third Edition of Physiology of Membrane Disorders, it was clear that since , when the Second Edition appeared, the field had experienced the dawning of a new era dominated by a change in focus from phenomenology to underlying mechanisms.

This book describes our current understanding of the transport of ions, amino acids, nucleosides, sugars, water and gases across the red blood cell membrane. It also outlines the necessary theoretical background to understand the dynamics of membrane constituents together with the mechanisms of transport pathways (pumps, channels, carriers. Gene mutations in several receptors, including vasopressin V2 receptor, dihydropyridine receptor, and Ca2+ -sensing receptor, also cause disorders of membrane transport, leading to diseases. Further advances in basic science are expected to provide us with a detailed understanding of the abnormality in the 3rd/4th structure of mutated transport. You can directly edit the membrane receptor, if the defective for any reason, it is possible to prevent signal transduction to cause disease. Specific disease is caused by a membrane receptor dysfunction caused by failure or defect of the receptor caused by changes in the gene encoding the protein receptor. The TM4SF5 membrane receptor recently, scientists have discovered that it has something. The study of the disorders of membrane transport has contributed as much or more to our understanding of cell biology and metabolism as any other group of disorders discussed in this book. Indeed, one might make the cogent argument that one of these disorders defined the term inborn errors of metabolism when Dr. Archibald Garrod introduced the.

ISBN , Cell membrane diseases are life-threatening disorders that are genetic in nature, and they usually work against proteins in our body that are key to ion channels and various receptors within the membrane. These diseases work by either disrupting the normal functions of the cells or by simply affecting the cell membrane.
