Signal transduction is one of the most rapidly expanding fields in biomedical research. Written by renowned experts, Intracellular Signal Transduction provides up-to-date reviews on the role of protein phosphorylation cascades, and the structure, regulation, and function of protein kinases and phosphatases. This volume was compiled in honor of Dr. Edwin Krebs' pioneering work in the field of signal transduction which earned him a Nobel Prize. It provides information in a variety of areas relating to the biochemistry, cell biology, and pharmacology of the signal transduction process in eukaryotic cells.
* Contains current reviews in signal transduction processes in eukaryotic cells
* Presents the structure and function of protein kinases and phosphatases
* Highlights MAP kinase cascades, tyrosine phophatases, pharmacology of protein kinases, and cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterases
