General Physiology and Biophysics


An International Journal

General Physiology and Biophysics is an "Open Access", peer-reviewed scientific journal published by the Institute of Molecular Physiology and Genetics of Centre of Biosciences SAS since 1982. The journal is devoted to the publication of original research articles and reviews that elucidate physiological, biophysical or biochemical mechanisms at the cellular and molecular level.


  • membrane physiology and biophysics (ion channels, receptors, transporters, protein-lipid interactions, surface phenomena, model membranes)
  • excitability and contractility (neurophysiology, smooth, cardiac and skeletal muscle physiology, excitation-contraction coupling, cellular motility)
  • biophysical analysis of cellular function (bioenergetics, volume regulation, thermodynamics, mathematical models)
  • metabolic regulations (enzymology, ATPases, plant and microbial metabolism)
  • cellular aspects of pharmacology, toxicology and pathology (receptor-drug interaction, the action of drugs and toxins on signalling and regulatory functions, free radicals, lipid peroxidation, ischemic preconditioning, calcium paradox)
  • accounts of advances in relevant techniques and methodology
