About this Book
This keenly awaited first overview of the field represents a complete guide to the structure and function of the most important mammalian cell membrane organelles. Filling a huge gap in the primary literature, this book is the first to cover the subject in detail.
Following an introduction by Kai Simons, the discoverer of lipid rafts and the most prominent scientist in the field, chapters include:
Distinct structures and functions
Viral entry and virion budding
Cell polarity and intracellular trafficking
Of prime importance to molecular and cell biologists, biochemists, membrane scientists, cancer researchers, and virologists.
