Molecular Aspects of Transport Proteins Excerpt :

The development of molecular biological techniques and their application in the field has given a new dimension to the area of membrane transport. The combination of biochemical (site-specific reagents), molecular biological (site-directed mutagenesis) and genetic approaches of which this volume gives numerous examples in combination with biophysical techniques as X-ray analysis and NMR will eventually lead to a complete elucidation of the mechanism of action of these transport proteins. Although impossible to give a comprehensive overview of this rapidly expanding field, the expert contributors discuss: pumps involved in primary active transport, carriers which transport metabolites, and channels which allow selective passive transport of particular ions. This volume is ideal for teachers, students and investigators in this field, and will lead to further progress in our understanding of this fascinating field.

Control and Diseases of Sodium Dependent Transport Proteins and Ion Channels Excerpt :

Hardbound. Control and diseases of sodium dependent transport proteins and ion channels is believed to be one of the scientific research fields which holds great interest for biomedical investigators. The topics of gene expression, modulation and traffic of ion channels, transporters and receptors are progressing tremendously in cellular and molecular biology. The expression and regulation of these areas has profound implications for research in fields such as neuronal systems, intra- and intercellular signaling and close talking, cell prolification and differentiation, and ion mobilization. Evidence from this research has fundamental effect on drug design, dialysation and gene therapy as clinical tools.The contributions in this volume are grouped according to subject. Much focus is placed on molecular biology, regulatory mechanism, gene expression, physiology, pharmacology, toxicology and drug design related to Na/H exchanger, Na/Ca exchanger, Na c

Membrane Transporters and Channels as Targets for Drugs Excerpt :

Transporters and channels are membrane proteins that mediate the traffic of metabolites, water and ions across biological membranes. Membrane transport proteins are crucial to maintain homeostasis and assure cell survival upon intracellular or environmental stress. A failure of any of these transport systems may have dramatic consequences for cell function. There is increasing evidence that membrane transport proteins play important functions in healthy conditions and that their absence or dysfunction may cause diseases. In recent years much attention has been paid to diseases resulting from defective transporters (“carrier diseases”) and ion channels (“channelopathies”). Very interestingly, altered expression of transporters has been described in several human pathologies. On this basis, many transport proteins are well acknowledged targets for drugs. Many others are involved in drug delivery and disposition and/or are considered potential targets. Others are off-targets for drugs and then, are responsible for side effects. Thus, membrane protein drug discovery is now an emerging field where the search for physiological mechanisms of regulation and for chemical compounds as modulators of transport activity, present new opportunities for drug development and for new therapies. This Research Topic addresses the latest research advances in membrane transport proteins, stimulating future research on these important protein families.

Cholesterol Binding and Cholesterol Transport Proteins Excerpt :

Knowledge of cholesterol and its interaction with protein molecules is of fundamental importance in both animal and human biology. This book contains 22 chapters, dealing in depth with structural and functional aspects of the currently known and extremely diverse unrelated families of cholesterol-binding and cholesterol transport proteins. By drawing together this range of topics the Editor has attempted to correlate this broad field of study for the first time. Technical aspects are given considerable emphasis, particularly in relation cholesterol reporter molecules and to the isolation and study of membrane cholesterol- and sphingomyelin-rich "raft" domains. Cell biological, biochemical and clinical topics are included in this book, which serve to emphasize the acknowledged and important benefits to be gained from the study of cholesterol and cholesterol-binding proteins within the biomedical sciences and the involvement of cholesterol in several clinical disorders. It is hoped that by presenting this topic in this integrated manner that an appreciation of the fact that there is much more that needs to be taken into account, studied and understood than the widely discussed "bad and good cholesterol" associated, respectively, with the low- and high-density lipoproteins, LDL and HDL.
