Description

Molecular Biology and Toxicology of Metals provides a critical review and analysis of the current state of knowledge of metal ion transport and metabolism in prokaryotic and eukaryotic cellular systems. It covers the latest information on specific metals and the biological molecules with which metals interact. It also details mechanisms in the handling and toxicity of metals in specific organ systems, and the role of metals in cell signalling and gene transcription in target cells. This book is sure to prove a fertile meeting ground for the disciplines of molecular genetics and metal toxicology.show more
