The Unfolded Protein Response and Cellular Stress, Part A

Edited by

  • P. Michael Conn, Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, Lubbock, USA

This volume provides descriptions of the occurrence of the UPR, methods used to assess it, pharmacological tools and other methodological approaches to analyze its impact on cellular regulation. The authors explain how these methods are able to provide important biological insights.
