About this book

Since the first edition of Guidebook to Cytoskeletal and Motor Proteins many new and important discoveries have been made on the structure and function of proteins involved in the microfilament, microtubule and intermediate filament systems in cells. Even specialists in the field have found it difficult to keep up with the information that has emerged in recent years on this diverse range of eukaryotic proteins, their genes, and the roles that they play in cell structure, motor function and signalling. The Sambrook & Tooze guidebooks provide succinct and up-to-date information on particular classes of important biological molecules, accompanied by short bibliographies, which enable both specialists and newcomers to the field to gain access to unfamiliar work. This volume begins with a comprehensive catalogue of the structure and function of cytoskeletal actin, tubulin, and intermediate filaments and their associated proteins There is further coverage of proteins which are involved in 'New Filament Systems'. A section on 'Molecular Motors and Associated Proteins' details all that is currently known about the major motor protein families and the proteins which are associated with them in the motor complex. In addition, a section on 'Organelle Structural Proteins' describes the roles these proteins have in efficient intracellular communication and function.

"The book is essentially a concise encyclopedia of these proteins. The chapters have a tight and similar organization; all are short and informative. Each related group of proteins is introduced by a brief and well thought out chapter. This is an excellent book that would be of use to a researcher or anyone who wished to find definitions, or learn about cellular localizations, possible functions, systems studied in, etc., regarding the very large number of cytoskeletal and motor proteins in dozens of species, systems, and cell types. To pack all this information into a single volume is an admirable achievement. The book is reasonably priced and is worth having on the bookshelf of any cell or molecular biologist." -- Doody's
