General description

This book will be of interest to those working on the mechanism of solute transport across biological membranes. Its scope is broad, ranging from the techniques required to study transport itself, through to the expression, purification and reconstitution of transporters, and techniques for investigation of their structure. It includes computer prediction of transporter topology and structure. Most of the protocols can be implemented in any well-found laboratory.
