This must-have cell signaling title will appeal to researchers across molecular biology, biochemistry, cell biology and genetics. The articles are written and edited by experts in the field and emphasize signaling to and from intracellular compartments including transcriptional responses to cytoplasmic and nuclear signaling events, chromatin remodeling and stress responses, the regulation of endoplasmic reticulum function, control of cell cycle progression and apoptosis and the modulation of the activities of mitochondria and other organelles.

"In order to keep researchers and students up to date on developments in the field, 55 articles were selected and reprinted from the 2008 second edition of the ‘Handbook of Cell Signaling’ on the transcriptional regulation and the function of nuclei and other subcellular organelles in signaling activities. After an overview, they cover nuclear signaling in transcription, chromatic remodeling, and stress response; signaling to and from intracellular compartments; and cell cycle and cell death signaling. This is one of four volumes of such reprints, called the Cell Signaling Collection."--Reference and Research Book News
