Abstract : This state-of-the-art assessment describes the means by which cell membrane transport systems are regulated in both epithelial and nonepithelial cells. Regulation and Development of Membrane Transport Processes leads readers from a physiological description of regulation toward a more mechanistic level of understanding. Distinguished researchers in physiology, biochemistry, genetics, and pharmacology offer key insights into the regulatory processes evoked by external stimuli, such as hormones or substrate limitation, and by the internal stimulus of genetically programmed development. Their multidisciplinary efforts define three forms of regulations: (1) gene expression leading to de novo synthesis; (2) insertion and removal of cytoplasmic membrane vesicles; and (3) in situ modification of the transport system in the membrane. Regulation and Development of Membrane Transport Processes reviews a wide spectrum of transport regulatory phenomena in eukaryotic cells and provides the groundwork for future research.
