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.
