Lithium and the Cell : Pharmacology and Biochemistry
An up-to-date compilation addressing the scientific problems of determining a mode of action of lithium and providing cross-disciplinary perspective. As well as discussing the therapeutic uses of lithium, it will also be of interest to biochemists using lithium as inhibitor of phosphoinositide signalling, the immunologist studying lymphocytes and the dermatologist studying viral replication of the skin.
