This volume comprises an interdisciplinary survey of the molecular and biochemical functions of magnesium in cells. It will be of use to biochemists and pharmacologists studying the many processes in which magnesium has a pivotal role.
Clinical researchers will be interested because magnesium is the second most common intracellular ion. Its deficiency is frequently associated with concomitant changes in potassium ion. In practice, however, it is most common for the potassium ion charges alone to be treated, the association with magnesium not being recognized.
This book will also be of value to those who seek to understand the molecular role of metal ions in the regulation of biological processes and the role of biomolecular interactions in cellular signalling and control.
* SPECIAL FEATURES:
* This book provides an interdisciplinary survey of the molecular and biochemical survey fo the molecular and biochemical functions of magnesium in the cells.
* Covers magnesium's widespread role in regulation of enzymes, transmitters, membrane functions and cell-signalling processes.
