Description

Calcium-Binding Proteins in Health and Disease includes the papers prepared by the invited speakers as well as many of the free communications. The contributions are grouped according to their general subject matter, based on the classification made by the authors, e.g., Extracellular Metabolism: Calcium Homeostasis; Low-Affinity Calcium-Binding Proteins. There can be little doubt that calcium-binding proteins is a field of scientific endeavor which will continue to produce results of great interest to modern biology. This book is divided into eight sections, the first of which, tackle extracellular calcium metabolism or calcium homeostasis. The next sections focus on topics such as low-affinity calcium-binding proteins; calcium and membranes, channels and transport (pumps); the role of calcium in complex metabolic processes; and gene structure of calcium-binding proteins and their expression. Other chapters cover physical studies on calcium-binding proteins, including X-ray, crystallography, and NMR; structure-function relationships of calcium-binding proteins and their targets; and calcium-binding proteins in health and disease. This book will be of interest to practitioners in the fields of biology and medicine.
