Membrane Transport in Plantsby Michael R. (edt) Blatt
Synopses & Reviews
Research in to membrane transport has advanced rapidly in recent years, following the availability of new biophysical techniques, the integration of structural and molecular approaches, and developments in molecular genomics. With an expanding population, agricultural production is pushed increasingly into marginal areas, promoting interest in the genetic engineering of crop species to cope with these conditions. Membrane Transport in Plants provides on overview of our current understanding of plant membrane transport in the light of recent developments. The volume is directed at researchers and professionals in plant cell biology, biochemistry and physiology.
Book News Annotation:
Plant biologists, biochemists, and other researchers from Europe, the US, and South Africa offer a dozen articles in this year's review of transport across plant membranes. Their topics include concepts and techniques in plant membrane physiology; electrophysiology equipment and software; the structure, function, and regulation of primary H+ and Ca2+ pumps; the ion-coupled transport of inorganic solutes; the functional analysis of proton-coupled sucrose transport; voltage-gated ion channels; ligand-gated ion channels; aquaporins in plants; Ca2+ and pH as integrating signals in transport control; vesicle traffic and plasma membrane transport; potassium nutrition and salt stress; and membrane transport and soil remediation.
