ISSN (printed): 0022-2631. ISSN (electronic): 1432-1424.
The Journal of Membrane Biology will publish papers on the nature the structure genesis and functions of biological membranes and on the physics and chemistry of artificial membranes with a bearing on biomembranes. It will publish articles dealing with plasma membranes (including cell surfaces and accessory surface structures such as bacterial or plant cell walls); intracellular membranes (e.g. membranes of organelles nuclei mitochondria chloroplasts vesicles intracellular reticula); membrane organs (e.g. skin urinary bladder gut kidney lung); biomembrane models (e.g. monolayers bilayers synthetic membranes); and general considerations of two-dimensional biological structures . Suitable topics are chemical and physical structure; immunochemical properties and fingerprinting; colloid and surface chemistry; transport and secretory functions including natural and artificial transport carrier systems membrane channels diffusion and pinocytosis; metabolic functions membrane-bound enzyme systems transduction; electrical phenomena in excitable membranes nerve muscle receptors etc; membrane - membrane interaction intercellular communication; membrane synthesis and replication; cell regulatory functions of membranes and cybernetic aspects; membrane genetics; evolution and comparative aspects of biomembranes.
