About this book

This title is required reading for anyone involved in cell signaling research with articles written and edited by experts in the field. This title covers disease states such as lymphoid leukemia, breast cancer, pulmonary fibrosis, systemic sclerosis, and inflammatory bowel disease, along with up-to-date research on signaling systems and mutations in transcription factors that provide new targets for treating disease. This title contains articles written and edited by experts in the field. This is a thematic volume covering disease states such as lymphoid leukemia, breast cancer, pulmonary fibrosis, systemic sclerosis, and inflammatory bowel disease. It provides up-to-date research on signaling systems and mutations in transcription factors that provide new targets for treating disease.

The Cell Signaling Collection consists of four independent volumes which reprint articles from the second edition of the 'Handbook of Cell Signaling' carefully selected to alert medical and biological scientists to recent developments in the study of cellular signaling. This volume contains 57 articles exploring transduction mechanisms. After an overview of intracellular signaling, they cover phosporylation and dephosphorylation in kinases and phosphates, lipid signaling, cyclic nucleotides, and G proteins. The other volumes cover the functioning of transmembrane receptors, the regulation of organelle and cell compartment signaling, and intracellular signaling in development and disease.

"For professionals, graduate researchers, and graduate students in biochemistry, biology, genetics, and biomedicine, Dennis (chemistry and biochemistry and pharmacology, U. of California, San Diego) and Bradshaw (chemistry and pharmaceutical chemistry, U. of California, San Francisco) bring together 52 articles from the authors' 'Handbook of Cell Signaling' on cell-cell signaling, signaling development, and signaling in disease. A group of biologists, chemists, oncologists, surgeons, and other scientists from the US, Europe, Singapore, and Australia emphasize the role of cell-cell interaction and organ and tissue effects in signaling activities and their disease implications. They do not cover other aspects of cell signaling like transmembrane receptor structure, receptor organization and function, intracellular signaling mechanisms, and transcriptional activation and responses in other organelles."
