This new edition of Guidebook to the Extracellular Matrix and Adhesion Proteins brings up-to-date information on the purification, activities, antibodies and genes for the proteins found in the extracellular matrix and those known to be involved in cell-cell contact and adhesion. Since thefirst edition much has been learned on the structure of these proteins and their diverse roles in cell communication and metabolite exchange. The Sambrook and Tooze guidebooks provide succinct and up-to-date information on particular classes of important biological molecules, accompanied by shortbibliographies, which enable both specialists and newcomers to the field to gain access to unfamiliar work. Drawing on a wide range of sources, this volume addresses all aspects of the structure and function of modules in the extracellular matrix, adhesion molecules, cell adhesion and cell-cellcontact proteins.
