The second edition of "The Extracellular Matrix FactsBook" has been completely revised, updated and expanded by over 50 percent. It contains over 85 entries on the diverse group of macromolecules that assemble to form the extracellular matrix. Entries provide information on molecular structure, isolation, primary structure, structural and functional sites, gene structure, database accession numbers, and key references. It is compiled by members of one of the foremost centers of matrix biochemistry in the world, and contains over 30 new entries, with all previous entries being revised and updated. It includes new entries on proteinases involved in the deposition of the extracellular matrix, and presents 3D ribbon diagrams in cases where the protein structure is now known.

Review quote

Praise for the Second Edition "A major strength of this book is the authors themselves who are reputable and internationally known investigators of extracellular matrix research... a major change of this edition is the inclusion of matrix metalloproteinases involved in the deposition and degradation of the extracellular matrix... This is a well written and well organized book containing the latest information about this diverse group of important biological molecules." --Stephen Lam, PhD, University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine, FOR DOODY'S ELECTRONIC JOURNAL Reviews of the First Edition: "The easy accessibility and organized information should make the ECM FactsBook a must in every ECM laboratory. For students in other areas, this comprehensive book is a useful guide to what might seem frequently to be a confusing array of molecules. For teachers, the schematic presentations of the different ECM molecules are useful. For scientists in the field, the book has a collection of the accession numbers to cDNA's. I strongly recommend the ECM FactsBook (and) recommend...the next edition." --TRENDS IN CELL BIOLOGY
