Summary Volume 5 reviews recent advances in membrane transport, physiology, emphasizing transport mechanisms that have been foci for intensive investigation over the past 5 years. From this work, it has become abundantly clear that these same transport mechanisms are found in many different types of cells and tissues, but that they can be arranged in various combinations with other transporters in order to provide a givencell with unique transport characteristics. Similarly, distribution of thesemembrane transporters between apical and basolateral membranes in epithelia in various combinations with other transporters, can lead to unique transepithelial transport phenomena. Thus, the emphasis of the present volume is on the new information that has derived from these varioustransport systems, but with an emphasis on transportrs that are common to several cells. Rather than detailing specific characteristics of several specific cells and tissues, as had been done in the original four volumes of this book, this volume emphasizes the commonality of transport mechanisms shared by different cells and tissues and how they are integrated into varying cells functions.
