Cellular Signal Processing is intended for use in signal transduction courses for undergraduate and graduate students. It offers a unifying view of cell signaling that is based on the concept of protein interactions acting as sophisticated data processing networks that govern intracellular and extracellular communication. The content is guided by three major principles that are central to signal transduction: the protein network, its energy supply, and its evolution. It includes coverage of all important aspects of cell signaling, ranging from prokaryotic signal transduction to neuronal signaling. It also highlights the clinical aspects of cell signaling in health and disease.
- Chapter 3 discusses the evolution of cellular signal processing by focusing on prokaryotic signal transduction, which links the major switching reactions of mammalian signaling to prokaryotic predecessors. This chapter is unique among the currently available cell signaling textbooks.
- Chapter 17 places signal transduction in context with systems biology and describes the formation and function of networks.
- Highly visual illustration program that features over 400 illustrations.
- Sidebars are included throughout the book to highlight complementary perspectives to the main discussion and strengthen the student’s understanding of essential concepts.
- Section summaries clarify the important points with each chapter.
"This book would be highly useful to undergraduate students in medical, bioinformatics or biological science that are studying or pursuing research into signal transduction, network or systems biology. This book would also appeal to graduate students or professionals moving into this field of research, without prior knowledge or experience....each chapter engages the reader and conveys the importance of biological systems and networks adequately, thus challenging the reader to continue viewing their specific focus or field of research in complete isolation." - Immunology News, November 2010
