Pathobiology of Cell Membranes, Volume I, represents the first in a multivolume treatise designed for pathologists and cell biologists interested in the role of membrane alterations in disease processes. The treatise will emphasize concepts related to membrane alterations in cell injury as well as methods for elucidating such changes. The book begins with a discussion of the general conceptual aspects of cell injury and some details about the role of membrane alterations in the pathogenesis of both lethal and sublethal cellular reactions. This is followed by separate chapters on applications of circular dichroism to the study of membranes; a cell injury mechanism involving membrane components at the molecular level; and fundamental aspects of cell volume regulation and the modification of this regulation by primary or secondary damage of the cell membrane. Subsequent chapters deal with comparative roles of lysosomal and other membrane damage in cell injury; the role of membrane movements and various types of lysosome formation; toxic effects on mitochondrial membranes; and the concept of a biological membrane in health and disease at the tissue level.
