Media reviews
This volume reprints 53 articles originally published in 'Handbook of Cell Signaling' by Elsevier in 2010. The researchers describe the structure and role of cell surface receptors in signaling activities with separate sections on tyrosine kinase, cytokine, G protein-coupled, TGFB, TNF, and immunoglobin receptors. The opening chapters review the chemical principles of protein binding, FRET detection techniques, protein tyrosine phosphatases, and the formation of oligomers. Color figures are provided.
