Key Features

@introbul:Key Features
@bul:* The first comprehensive volume on potassium ion channels in all aspects of genes, molecular structure, function, and diseases
* Completely up-to-date information
* Written by leading scientists in the field


This book is the first to focus on potassium ion channels and covers the recent remarkable progress made in research on these proteins. Many diseases are caused by the abnormalities of potassium ion channels. They include diabetes mellitus, life-threatening hereditary cardiac arrhythmia, epilepsy, neural degeneration, and renal hypertension. Written by leading scientists in the field, this volume offers readers a comprehensive update of this field in the understanding of the genes, molecular structure, function and diseases of potassium ion channels.
