This, the latest in the Sambrook and Tooze Guidebook Series enables non-specialists to rapidly gain access to unfamiliar work surrounding the secretory pathways. Detailing both the established and the experimental, this book outlines how recent work has established a role for the secretory pathway in the regulation of gene expression and cell-cycle control, clearly highlighting its importance. Addressing many aspects of the secretory pathway, the book contains almost two hundred entries, and falls in five sections: protein secretion in E.coli; translocation and maturation of newly synthesized polypeptides in the ER of eukaryotic cells; protein machines and catalyzing ER to golgitransport; membrane traffic in the golgi and to the cell surface, and membrane traffic to the lysosome/vacuole. Providing key references in a clear, informative layout, this book provides a valuable guide to the bewildering and complex array of genes and proteins involved in the cellular secretory pathway. The guidebook will maintain up to date entries - the almost two hundred contributors will update their entries continuously, and these updates will be available via the Internet.

Editorial Reviews

`'...a most convincing approach for rapid and thorough information...The different entries of the catalogues are written by leading specialists in the respective field and they are all impressive in their preciseness, clarity and information density. The volumes shold be present in everybiochemical laboratory and other institutions in the field of molecular and cell biology.''G.Aumuller.
