Chapter X. Toxic Changes in Mitochondrial Membranes and Mitochondrial Function
Pathobiology of Cell Membranes, Volume I, represents the first in a multivolume treatise designed for pathologists and cell biologists interested in the role of membrane alterations in disease processes. The treatise will emphasize concepts related to membrane alterations in cell injury as well as methods for elucidating such changes. The book begins with a discussion of the general conceptual aspects of cell injury and some details about the role of membrane alterations in the pathogenesis of both lethal and sublethal cellular reactions. This is followed by separate chapters on applications o
