Synopsis: A recent review of one of my grant applications commented on the ?rediscovery of tropomyosin?. I was tempted to write back in my rebuttal to the reviewer that I didn?t realise it had been lost. Uncharacteristic maturity prevailed and I resisted the temptation, but I was struck by the underlying observation that research on the str- ture and function of tropomyosin has been somewhat invisible, particularly in terms of the cytoskeleton isoforms. So, how can it be that one of the two major components of the actin filament has been so thoroughly overlooked? I suspect that the answer is disappointingly pedestrian. Whereas the biochemistry of the 1980s revealed the potential of tropomyosin isoforms to diversify the function of actin filaments, the subsequent disenchantment with isoform biology in general in the 1990s inhibited growth of this field. With the development of more sophisticated experimental - proaches we are now seeing a growing realisation of the importance of tropomyosin in regulating actin filaments beyond its pivotal role in muscle contraction. The opportunity to edit this book came at a time when we had written several reviews on different aspects of tropomyosin function and I had just finished the background reading for a comprehensive review of tropomyosin biology. I realised that the field was simply beyond the capacity of any one person to do the field j- tice.

Product Description:

Tropomyosin is one of the two core components of the actin filament and is involved in regulating most if not all functions of these filaments. Tropomyosin has brought together research leaders in this field to review not only what we know but also what the future holds for this field of research. All aspects of tropomyosin biology are covered from gene structure and expression to protein structure, their role in cell function and disease and finally to mechanisms of their function.

The book is essential reading for anyone interested in cell structure and function. The actin architectural system is involved in the majority of cellular processes and this book explains how the tropomyosins contribute to this diversity of function. It is not only a comprehensive resource for those working in the field but is also designed to introduce the broader research community to these important molecules.
