Now the updated second edition of this bestselling title is available as softcover!
Intracellular signal transduction, regulation of cellular activities, tumor formation, apoptosis - how do they work? These questions have become a central topic in Biology and Biological Chemistry. The importance of this field is mirrored in the 1999 Nobel prize for Physiology that went to G. Blobel for his findings in protein transport regulation.
Over the last decade there has been great progress in the understanding of the molecular basis of signal transduction, and many facts are now basic knowledge for every medicinal chemist, biochemist, and biologist. Since an integral description of cellular regulation and signal transduction is scarcely covered in textbooks, this book fills a real gap. Starting from the principles of gene regulation and regulation of enzyme activity, the topics of this book cover function, structure, and integral construction of signalling pathways plus a detailed description of the various types of carriers such as second messengers, protein kinases, and transmembrane receptors. Central cellular processes like cell cycle regulation, oncogenesis and apoptosis are discussed in light of the properties of the signalling molecules involved. With didactic skill and clarity the author relates the observed biological phenomena to the underlying biochemical processes.
This book is actually two books: Regulation and Signal Transduction.

This all-new edition of a classic text has been thoroughly revised to keep pace with the rapid progress in signal transduction research. With didactic skill and clarity the author relates the observed biological phenomena to the underlying biochemical processes.
Directed to advanced students, teachers, and researchers in biochemistry and molecular biology, this book describes the molecular basis of signal transduction, regulated gene expression, the cell cycle, tumorigenesis and apoptosis.
"Provides a comprehensive account of cell signaling and signal transduction and, where possible, explains these processes at the molecular level"
"The clear and didactic presentation makes it a textbook very useful for students and researchers not familiar with all aspects of cell regulation."
"This book is actually two books: Regulation and Signal Transduction."
Gerhard Krauss is Professor of Biochemistry at the University of Bayreuth (Germany). His resarch is centered on the mechanism of interaction of DNA binding proteins and their target DNA. He is specifically interested in transcription factor, DNA methyl transferases and nucleotide excision repair.
The idea for a textbook on Signal Transduction and Gene Regulation originated from a lecture course that he has been teaching at Bayreuth since the middle of the 1990s.
