A new series that provides up to date reviews in cellular and molecular biology. This volume reviews both the basic features of the yeast general stress response and the specific adaptations to different stress types. It also discusses the implications for the analysis of stress response mechanisms in higher eukaryotes.
From the reviews: "This book is focused on the stress responses of yeasts ! . Each chapter is written in the form of a comprehensive review, that provides up-to-date, current status knowledge. The text of the Chapters is supported with excellent diagrams and figures that illustrate metabolic and gene regulatory pathways, and there is detailed referencing to the literature. The book is clearly targeted to those interested in fundamental understanding of cell stress ! ." (Graham H. Fleet, Mycopathologia, Issue 159, 2005)
