Biochemistry of Signal Transduction and Regulation, 3rd, Completely Revised Edition
Directed at advanced students, teachers, and researchers in biochemistry and molecular biology, this book describes the molecular basis of signal transduction, regulated gene expression, the cell cycle, tumorigenesis and apoptosis.
From the reviews of the previous edition:
"Provides a comprehensive account of cell signaling and signal transduction and, where possible, explains these processes at the molecular level"
"The clear and didactic presentation makes it a textbook very useful for students and researchers not familiar with all aspects of cell regulation."
"This book is actually two books: Regulation and Signal Transduction."
Regulation of Enzyme Activity /
Function and Structure of Signaling Pathways /
Signal Transduction by Nuclear Receptors /
G-Protein-Coupled Signal Transmission Pathways /
Intracellular Messenger Substances: "Second Messengers" /
Ser/Thr-Specific Protein Kinases and Protein Phosphatases /
Signal Transmission via Transmembrane Receptors with Tyrosine-Specific Protein Kinase Activity /
Signal Transmission via Ras Proteins /
Intracellular Signal Transduction: Protein Kinase Cascades of MAP Kinase Pathways /
Membrane Receptors with Associated Tyrosine Kinase Activity /
Transmembrane Receptors with Intrinsic Ser/Thr-Kinase Activity and Signal Transduction in the "Two-Component Pathway" /
Regulation of the Cell Cycle /
Malfunction of Signaling Pathways and Tumorigenesis: Oncogenes and Tumor Suppressor Genes /
The idea for a textbook on Signal Transduction and Gene Regulation originated from a lecture course that he has been teaching at Bayreuth since the middle of the 1990s.
