This volume focuses on recent research on the structure, molecular mechanisms, physiological regulation, and involvement in disease of Na,K-ATPase and other members of the family of cation pumps. Prominent members of this family include gastric H,K-ATPase, Ca-ATPase of sarcoplasmic and endoplasmic reticulum, plasma membrane Ca-ATPase, and plasma membrane of H-ATPase of fungi and higher plants, as well as heavy metal pumps. The volume includes details of the first high-resolution structure ever obtained of a P-type pump, the sarcoplasmic reticulum Ca-ATPase; this structure has great predictive power relative to all P-type pumps.
