Ca2+ homeostasis and the plasma membrane Na+/Ca2+ exchanger are vital to many cellular functions and physiological processes. This volume includes contributions that merge molecular biology, biochemistry, biophysics, and physiology, providing novel insights that significantly advance our understanding of Na+/Ca2+ exchanger in areas ranging from molecular mechanisms to the involvement in human disease. The rate of progress in this field has been rapidly increasing, and new concepts have emerged regarding the relation between molecular structure and physiological function. New ideas on physiological modes of regulation have been increasingly testable through the use of transgenic animal models.
