* 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
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.
