Signal Transduction : Prokaryotic and Simple Eukaryotic Systems
This volume reviews current knowledge of molecular mechanisms for sensory transduction in a variety of microbial systems, as well as work done in nematodes and Drosophila. The book describes prokaryotic and eukaryotic signalling systems and provides information to compare microbial with more complex systems. It describes mechanisms of signal transduction and methods to study these mechanisms. Chapters are included on bacteria, yeasts, nematodes, Dictyostelium, Chlamydomonas, Paramecium and Drosophila.
