This authoritative and comprehensive volume presents a perspective in the molecular and cellular diversity of membrane ion channels. Written in an accessible format, it depicts the structure and function of each of the known classes of ion channels. Each chapter provides amino acid sequences, including data base accession numbers; views of secondary, tertiary and quaternary channel structure; and evolutionary relationships among channels.
