Description

This informative publication brings together knowledge of various aspects of cellular regulation. Current Topics in Cellular Regulation reviews the progress being made in those specialized areas of study that have undergone substantial development. It also publishes provocative new theories and concepts and serves as a forum for the discussion of general principles. Researchers in cellular regulation as well as biochemists, molecular and cell biologists, microbiologists, and biophysicists will find Current Topics in Cellular Regulation a useful source of up-to-date information. This volume covers topics including cellular thiols and redox regulated signal transduction; integration of antagonistic signals in the regulation of nitrogen assimilation in E. coli; regulation of nuclear import and export and of glutathione synthesis, superoxide dismutase, oxidative stress, and cell metabolism; and thiol-based antioxidants.

Readership

Reviews

"Timely... High standard of writing... It is to be highly recommended." @source:--QUARTERLY JOURNAL OF EXPERIMENTAL PHYSIOLOGY @qu:"The articles are well written and have excellent bibliographies. Biochemists whose major interests include enzymology, control of metabolic pathways, or organelle and membrane synthesis should find this book thought-provoking and well worth their time." @source:--AMERICAN SCIENTIST @qu:"Like its predecessors, this volume is essential in any biochemical library." @source:--QUARTERLY REVIEW OF BIOLOGY @qu:"[This volume] lives up to the standards of quality that have come to be expected and all authors have provided reviews that clearly demonstrate insight and a willingnesss to be provocative and speculative...It is strongly recommended. Libraries serving the biological research community should give this volume high priority." @source:--ASM NEWS
