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! * Contains approximately 470 articles * Provides well-organized sections on each essential area in signaling * Includes discussion on everything from ligand/receptor interactions to organ/organism responses * Extremely user-friendly.
