Volume 54, Symposium S7: Cyclic Nucleotides and Protein Phosphorylation in Cell Regulation documents the proceedings of the 12th Federation of European Biochemical Societies (FEBS) Meeting held in Dresden, Germany on July 5-7, 1978. This book discusses the biological significance and biochemical aspects of cyclic nucleotides and protein phosphorylation in cell regulation. The general aspects of cyclic nucleotide metabolism and action; cyclic nucleotides and nervous system; and cyclic nucleotides in muscle tissues are also elaborated. This publication likewise covers the cyclic nucleotides in secretion processes and miscellaneous aspects of cyclic nucleotide-dependent and independent protein phosphorylation. This volume is valuable to biochemists and biologists concerned with the cyclic nucleotides and protein phosphorylation in cell regulation.
