0 Reviews
Calcium signaling is one of the hottest topics in cell science research today, and Calcium as a Cellular Regulator encompasses all aspects of this exciting field of study. It covers everything from methods of measuring calcium in cells, to the systems that control its concentration in the cytoplasm and organelles, to the molecular mechanisms for decoding its information. With twenty-seven chapters written by prominent scientists in cell research, this book is the first exhaustive attempt to cover the topic and fill a gap in the rapidly expanding area of calcium signaling. Each chapter skillfully balances historical details with state-of-the-art information on the latest developments in cell science, making it ideal for professionals and graduate students in biochemistry and related fields.
