Series: New Comprehensive Biochemistry

New Comprehensive Biochemistry • is designed to keep scientists up-to-date and informed of developments in the biochemical sciences • maintains the high standards and usefulness of the well known earlier series Comprehensive Biochemistry, initiated by M. Florkin and E.H. Stoltz • consists of volumes on major well-established areas of interest, individually edited with contributions from leading authorities • provides researchers, teachers and students of biochemistry with an authoritative reference work in biochemistry "...it is clear that the New Comprehensive Biochemistry series is going to be an important reference collection, useful to students and practicing biochemists alike" - The Clinical Biochemist Newsletter
Book Series: Calcium: A Matter of Life or Death

Most recent volume


Volume 41. Calcium: A Matter of Life or Death

Published: 18th July 2007
Calcium is a versatile carrier of signals regulating many aspects of cellular activity such as fertilization to create a new life and programmed cell death to end it. Calcium homeostasis is strictly controlled by channels, pumps and exchangers functioning as gates for calcium entry and release. Given that calcium is such a versatile messenger the field of calcium signaling is continuously and rapidly expanding. This book reviews the most recent developments in calcium signaling by leading experts in the field. It is a state-of-the-art summary of our present knowledge in this quickly growing field and provides insight into the impressive progress made in many areas of calcium signaling, while reminding us of how much remains to be learned.
