Description

Calcium signalling has now become one of the hottest topics in cell science. This book encompasses all aspects of calcium signalling, from methods of measuring calcium in cells, to the systems that control its concentration in the cytoplasm and in the organelles, to the molecular mechanisms for decoding its information. With twenty-seven chapters leading authorities, this book is the first comprehensive attempt to cover the topic and fills a gap in the rapidly expanding area. The chapters balance historical aspects and state-of-the-art information on latest developments.show more

Review quote

"Calcium signaling has now become one of the hottest topics in cell science. This book encompasses all aspects of calcium signaling, from methods of measuring calcium in cells, to the systems that control its concentration in the cytoplasm and organelles, to the molecular mechanisms for decoding its information. The book is divided into 3 parts covering the general aspects, calcium-modulated proteins, and specialized functions of calcium. With 27 chapters, this book is the first comprehensive attempt to cover the topic of calcium as a cell regulator and fills a gap in this rapidly expanding area. The chapters include historical aspects and state-of-the-art information on latest developments. Many tables, charts, graphs and diagrams are found throughout to help explain this relatively new topic of research."--Veterinary and Human Toxicologyshow more
