About this book

This is the latest book in the Sambrook and Tooze Guidebook Series, and it comprehensively details all that is currently known about the calcium-binding proteins. Calcium-binding proteins form a large family and have many functions within the cell, including decoding cellular signals. This is an active and expanding area of research, with new and important discoveries continually being made. Biochemists will find this book particularly useful, as will biologists in many fields in which the calcium-binding proteins are involved, such as neuroscience.

"This reference book provides an excellent and current survey of the large and important field of calcium-binding proteins. . . . Overall, this guide is very useful and will be of interest to a large number of individuals, particularly basic and clinical researchers in the field, as well as to a general audience interested in protein science."--The Quarterly Review of Biology

"The volume provides an excellent reference book on calcium-binding proteins in a concise and well-illustrated format, with individual chapters written by experts in the field, and directs the reader to more detailed literature on each topic."--Journal of Medicinal Chemistry

"Marco R. Celio has edited a very useful and comprehensive handbook....The Guidebook provides easy access to information on the entire family of calcium-binding proteins and will be useful to both experienced workers in the field for comparative purposes and newcomers wishing a handy snapshot of the field."--Patrician B. O'Hara
