Review quote

"The editors and contributors are all well-known leaders in their disciplines. I enjoyed reading this book and I am sure that I will use it often as a reference tool. Chapters are generally well-written, interesting, and comprehensive... I look forward to future volumes in the series... I recommend this book as a valuable reference tool for all interested in endocrine signaling pathways." --TRENDS IN ENDOCRINOLOGY AND METABOLISM

"...it fills a particular niche by providing a rapid update on specialized aspects of the challenging field of regulatory biology." --CELL

About Bert W. O'Malley

Tony Hunter received his Ph.D. in 1969 from the University of Cambridge, England. He joined the Salk Institute in 1975 as an assistant professor and has been a professor since 1982. His current interests are the protein-tyrosine kinases of the Src and growth factor receptor families and the protein-tyrosine phosphatases that remove the phosphates added by protein-tyrosine kinases. He was elected as a Fellow of the Royal Society of London in 1987, a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1992, and as an Associate Member of the European Molecular Biology Organization in 1992.
