Description

The Advances in Cancer Research series provides invaluable information on the exciting and fast-moving field of cancer research. This volume presents outstanding and original reviews on a variety of topics, including suppressor and oncogenic roles of TGF-b and its signaling pathways in tumorigenesis, hereditary diffuse gastric disease, the role of heparan sulfate proteoglycans in cell signaling and cancer, V-gene mutations in B-cell-derived human malignancy, MHC antigens and tumor escape from immune surveillance, the role of selection in progressive neoplastic transformation, and the genomic stability, neuronal development, and cancer cross paths of ATM.
