Basement Membranes: Cell and Molecular Biology brings together the most important research developments of the past 45 years that have enriched our knowledge and contributed to a better understanding of the biochemistry and cell and molecular biology of basement membranes. It describes the studies that shed light on the ultrastructural organization, the biosynthesis of the macromolecular components, their functions in embryonic development and differentiation, and in the mature state. A major portion of the book is devoted to the description of the genes that regulate the expression of the various structural macromolecules. Reviews the early years of research and the discovery of type IV collagen Presents the diversity of basement membrane morphology Discusses gene structure

Basement Membranes focuses on specialized extracellular matrices that provide the scaffolds used and required by cells to organize themselves into tissues and organs. As basement membranes have been shown to be defective in numerous genetic and acquired diseases and to contribute to the microenvironment of both tumor cells and stem cells, this book presents a view of specific basement membrane components and their roles in development and disease, all written and commented on in chapters written by leaders in the basement membrane field. Written by leading experts in the basement membrane field Contains original material, both textual and illustrative, that should become a very relevant reference material Presents material in a very comprehensive manner Ideal for both researchers in the field and general readers who will find relevant and up-to-date information

This volume brings together contributors from several different fields of cell biology, physiology, and molecular biology. The common thread that runs through all of the work presented is that cell processes regulate the activities of membrane transport proteins and classes of membrane transport proteins participate in a number of critical cell phenomena. This volume is unique in covering three different members of the ATP Binding Cassette family (MDR, CFTR and STE6) in one place, as well as in including structure and function analysis of the sodium pump in the same forum where its cell biology is considered. The book will appeal to a broad range of biologists with interests in membrane transport, membrane biology, cell biology, and sorting.

The Proceedings of the Fifth International Pediatric Nephrology Symposia are dedicated to those who make the writing possible: the delegates; those who wanted to attend, but could not, and to our colleagues, families and friends who helped organize the meeting. with the advent of certification of pediatric nephrologists in the USA and the increasing numbers of pediatric nephrologists contributing to and practic ing this specialty throughout the world, it is appropriate that we begin to record our international symposia in order to periodically document the State of the Art of pediatric nephrology and to share new information in a timely fashion with colleagues who care for children. Four previous international pediatric nephrology symposia have been spon sored by the International Pediatric Nephrology Association. These meetings were held in Guadalajara, Mexico, 1968, Paris, France, 1971, Washington, DC, USA, 1974 and Helsinki, Finalnd, 1977. This is the first time that it has been possible to organize the publication of the proceedings of a symposium. The enclosed manuscripts represent more than seventy percent of the symposia presentations delivered at the Fifth International Pediatric Symposia (October 6-10, 1980, Phila., PAl which was - hosted by St. Christopher's Hospital for Children and The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia representing the Departments of Pediatrics of Temple University School of Medicine and The University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine.
