Hedgehog Signaling

Series Editor:

  • Gerald Litwack, Jefferson Medical College, Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, PA, USA

First published in 1943, Vitamins and Hormones is the longest-running serial published by Academic Press.

Under the capable and qualified editorial leadership of Dr. Gerald Litwack, Vitamins and Hormones continues to publish cutting-edge reviews of interest to endocrinologists, biochemists, nutritionists, pharmacologists, cell biologists and molecular biologists. Others interested in the structure and function of biologically active molecules like hormones and vitamins will, as always, turn to this series for comprehensive reviews by leading contributors to this and related disciplines.

This volume focuses on hedgehog signaling.
