Hormones and Signalingfocuses on the mechanism of gene regulation at the cellular level. It also covers the way hormones act to modulate gene regulation and animal development.

Includes information on:

  • Nuclear receptors, coactivators, and corepressors
  • Membrane receptors, kinases, and phosphorylation on cascades
  • Hormonal regulation of development
  • Calcium channels and neurotransmitters
  • Chromatin, transcription factors, and regulation of gene expression
  • JAK/STAT pathways
  • Hormone-regulated development and gene "knock-out"
Tony Hunter received his Ph.D. in 1969 from the University of Cambridge, England. He joined the Salk Institute in 1975 as an assistant professor and has been a professor since 1982. His current interests are the protein-tyrosine kinases of the Src and growth factor receptor families and the protein-tyrosine phosphatases that remove the...

Editorial Reviews

"The editors and contributors are all well-known leaders in their disciplines. I enjoyed reading this book and I am sure that I will use it often as a reference tool. Chapters are generally well-written, interesting, and comprehensive... I look forward to future volumes in the series... I recommend this book as a valuable reference tool for all interested in endocrine signaling pathways."--TRENDS IN ENDOCRINOLOGY AND METABOLISM"...it fills a particular niche by providing a rapid update on specialized aspects of the challenging field of regulatory biology."--CELL
