Description

The Handbook of Cell Signaling is a comprehensive work covering all aspects of intracellular signal processing, including extra/intracellular membrane receptors, signal transduction, gene expression/translation, and cellular/organotypic signal responses. The subject matter has been divided into five main parts (each of which is headed by a recognized expert in the field):* Initiation: Extracellular and Membrane Events* Transmission: Effectors and Cytosolic Events * Nuclear Responses: Gene Expression and Translation* Events in Intracellular Compartments* Cell-Cell and Cell-Matrix Interactions Covered in extensive detail, these areas will appeal to a broad, cross-disciplinary audience interested in the structure, biochemistry, molecular biology and pathology of cellular effectors. Tabular and well-illustrated, the Handbook will serve as an in-depth reference for this complex and evolving field.Tabular and well illustrated, the Handbook will serve as an in-depth reference for this complex and evolving field!
