This volume draws together studies on the diverse group of calcium-activated chloride channels (CaCCS) in one comprehensive format. The characteristics of CaCCs identified in a number of different systems are described by experts in the field. Channels discussed include those described in cardiac, neuronal, endothelial and epithelial systems, in addition to sections on the CaCC of "Xenopus" Oocytes and the newly identified family of CLCA proteins.
* Includes description of CaCCs in excitable and non-excitable tissues
* Reviews identification and cloning of the CLCA protein family
* Contains section on CaCCs in "Xenopus" Oocytes
