Structural Biology of Membrane examines various methods to assess membrane structure, so as to understand the bacterial membrane dynamics. The book has been divided into six different sections explaining the entire biological membrane systematically. The first section is focused upon methods to assess membrane structure and content followed by the second section discussing about bacterial membrane dynamics which highlights permeability of CO2 through membranes. Provides the reader with an insight into the factors helping in regulating lysosomal membrane potential. Various effects of tumor membrane bound molecules on immune detection have also been discussed to draw reader’s attention towards the clinical and diagnostic applications of membrane dynamics.
