A primary component of cell signaling research, this title covers the principal membrane-bound receptor families, including their structural organization. Written and edited by experts in the field, this book provides up-to-date research on transmembrane signaling entities and their initiating responses following extracellular stimulation.
- Articles written and edited by experts in the field
- Thematic volume covering effectors, cytosolic events, nuclear, and cytoplasmic events
- Up-to-date research on signaling systems and mutations in transcription factors that provide new targets for treating disease
"This volume reprints 53 articles originally published in 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."--Reference and Research Book News
