Description

Protein Targeting, Transport, and Translocation presents an in-depth overview on the topic of protein synthesis, covering all areas of protein science, including protein targeting, secretion, folding, assembly, structure, localization, quality control, degradation, and antigen presentation. Chapters also include sections on the history of the field as well as summary panels for quick reference. Numerous color illustrations complement the presentation of material. This book is an essential reference for anyone in biochemistry and protein science, as well as an excellent textbook for advanced students in these and related fields.

Review Text

"...Dalbey et al. have summed up what has happened so far in a rapidly moving field of modern cellular biochemistry." --EUROPEAN JOURNAL OF CHEMICAL BIOLOGY, 2003"Overall this book provides good summaries of what we know about how proteins are moved between intracellular compartments and how we have studied this problem. Students or anyone wanting to know more about protein trafficking, particularly protein translocation across membranes, will find it a useful guide." --CELL, 2002
