About this book

Signal transduction pathways are molecular circuits that define how cells communicate with each other and respond to their environment. This new textbook for the first time provides a comprehensive view of the subject by covering both the basic mechanisms involved and the roles of signal transduction in fundamental biological processes. It starts by describing the basic players – signals, receptors, second messengers, and effectors – before comprehensively mapping the various different signaling pathways that operate in cells. It then goes on to provide detailed descriptions of how signal transduction functions in essential processes such as cell growth and division, metabolism, sensory perception, immunity, and reproduction.
