Our knowledge of the molecular nature of receptors for various hormones and neurotransmitters has been growing rapidly owing to extensive research in that area. As a result of expanding research interest in the receptors, numerous articles and reviews on various aspects of receptors are now spread among dozens of different journals. This has compelled investigators to expend considerable time and effort gathering information about different receptors and their properties. In this regard, the series of volumes on receptors should be of considerable help. The first volume on receptors, entitled "General Principles and Procedures," gives the reader an overall perception of the basic concepts, as well as mathematical and kinetic aspects, of receptorligand interactions. Also included in this volume are the subjects related to reconstitution of ion-transport components of biological membranes and incorporation of such functions into black lipid membranes. Identification and characterization of various receptors in isolated membranes and in
