The Paracellular Channel: Biology, Physiology and Disease


By Jianghui Hou, associate professor of medicine, Washington University

The Paracellular Channel: Biology, Physiology and Disease offers a cohesive and unifying picture of the critical functions of paracellular channels (tight junctions) in different tissues. This new class of ion channel utilizes a completely different mechanism to create ion passage pathways across the cell membrane. This volume outlines common principles that govern the organization and regulation of these diverse cellular structures, describes the methodology of study and highlights the pathophysiologic consequence of abnormal structures and functions of the paracellular channels in human diseases.
