9780878933211: Ion Channels of Excitable Membranes

Ion channels underlie a broad range of the most basic biological processes, from excitation and signaling to secretion and absorption. Like enzymes, they are diverse and ubiquitous macromolecular catalysts with high substrate specificity and subject to strong regulation. This fully revised and expanded third edition of Ion Channels of Excitable Membranes describes the known channels and their physiological functions, then develops the conceptual background needed to understand their architecture and molecular mechanisms of operation. It includes new chapters on calcium signaling, structural biology, and molecular biology and genomics. Ion Channels of Excitable Membranes begins with the classical biophysical work of Hodgkin and Huxley, continues with the roles of channels in cellular signaling, then develops the physical and molecular principles needed for explaining permeation, gating, pharmacological modification, and molecular diversity, and ends with a discussion of channel evolution. Ion Channels of Excitable Membranes is written to be accessible and interesting to life scientists and physical scientists of all kinds. It introduces all the concepts that a graduate student should be aware of but is also effective in advanced undergraduate courses. It has long been the recognized authoritative overview of this field used by all neuroscientists.

About the Author:


Bertil Hille is Professor in the Department of Physiology and Biophysics at the University of Washington. He graduated summa cum laude from Yale University with a B.S. in Zoology, and earned a Ph.D. in Life Sciences at The Rockefeller University. Dr. Hille then did postdoctoral work in the laboratories of A. L. Hodgkin and R. D. Keynes. He was elected to the National Academy of Sciences in 1986, and has received numerous awards, including: the Third Annual Bristol-Myers Squibb Award for Distinguished Achievement in Neuroscience Research (1990); the Columbia University Louisa Gross Horwitz Prize for Biology or Biochemistry (1996, shared with Clay Armstrong); and the Albert Lasker Basic Medical Research Award (1999, jointly with Clay Armstrong and Roderick MacKinnon). A cell physiologist, neurobiologist, and educator, Dr. Hille works on ion channel biophysics, signaling by modulatory neurotransmitters, and intracellular calcium dynamics. The Hille laboratory has published over 140 research papers and trained fifty graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.

Review:


"The third edition of Ion Channels of Excitable Membranes is markedly expanded, remarkably up to date, and stands as an unmitigated tour de force. Complete and enthusiastic, but not overwhelming, the text builds intuitively from the biophysical roots of the discipline. By maintaining a historical flavor, the reader is cleanly offered the essential ideas and concepts that remain key even as the field evolves. The book remains a resource for practitioners of the craft and the essential guide to the electrophysiological universe."
--Steven A. N. Goldstein, Cell
