Description

This latest volume of the biannual serial continues rapid, current coverage of all aspects of the molecular basis of human cancer, functions of oncogenes, and research strategies for cancer drug development and treatment. Topics reviewed in Volume 62 include chromosomes and cancer; pathways in Ras function; APC gene in human cancer; molecular cytogenetics of renal cell tumors; reverse transformation, genome exposure, and cancer; peptide-binding heat shock proteins in endoplasmic reticulum; new developments in the Epstein-Barr virus field; direct cellular communication and humoral immune response.
