    Description

    This must-have cell signaling title will appeal to researchers across molecular biology, biochemistry, cell biology and genetics. The articles are written and edited by experts in the field and emphasize signaling to and from intracellular compartments including transcriptional responses to cytoplasmic and nuclear signaling events, chromatin remodeling and stress responses, the regulation of endoplasmic reticulum function, control of cell cycle progression and apoptosis and the modulation of the activities of mitochondria and other organelles.

    Key Features

    • Articles written and edited by experts in the field
    • Thematic volume covering regulation of endoplasmic reticulum function, regulation of cell cycle progression, and quality control and assurance in mitochondrion events
    • Up-to-date research on events in membrane proteins and proteins of intracellular matrix

    Readership

    Professionals, researchers and graduate students in molecular biology, biochemistry, cell biology, biomedicine, structural biology, systems biology, and genetics.

    About the authors

    Ralph Bradshaw

    Ralph A. Bradshaw is Professor Emeritus in the Department of Physiology and biophysics at the University of California, Irvine. Prior to that he was on the faculty of the Department of Biological Chemistry, Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, MO and was Professor and Chair of the Department of Biological Chemistry at the University of California, Irvine. From 2006 to 2015, he was a member of the Mass Spectrometry Facility and Professor of Pharmaceutical Chemistry at the University of California, San Francisco. He holds degrees from Colby College and Duke University and was a post-doctoral fellow at Indiana University and the University of Washington. He has served as president for FASEB, was the founding president of the Protein Society and was the treasurer of the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. His research has focused on protein chemistry and proteomics, with emphasis on the structure and function of growth factors and their receptors, particularly nerve growth factor and fibroblast growth factor, and the involvement of receptor tyrosine kinases in cell signalling. He has also studied in the role of proteolytic processing and N-terminal modification in protein stability and turnover.

    Reviews

    "In order to keep researchers and students up to date on developments in the field, 55 articles were selected and reprinted from the 2008 second edition of the ‘Handbook of Cell Signaling’ on the transcriptional regulation and the function of nuclei and other subcellular organelles in signaling activities. After an overview, they cover nuclear signaling in transcription, chromatic remodeling, and stress response; signaling to and from intracellular compartments; and cell cycle and cell death signaling. This is one of four volumes of such reprints, called the Cell Signaling Collection."--Reference and Research Book News
