Guidebook to Cytokines and Their Receptors

Overview


The number of cytokines and related growth factors has increased dramatically in recent years to several dozen. Moreover, the names of the cytokines are generally uninformative of biological function, (such as the interleukin series 1 to 14), or are now recognized as misleading as new and unexpected activities are discovered in new bioassays. How is the new student, or even the expert in the field, to keep track of which cytokines does what, or synthesize the available scattered information on cytokines into ...

Overview


The number of cytokines and related growth factors has increased dramatically in recent years to several dozen. Moreover, the names of the cytokines are generally uninformative of biological function, (such as the interleukin series 1 to 14), or are now recognized as misleading as new and unexpected activities are discovered in new bioassays. How is the new student, or even the expert in the field, to keep track of which cytokines does what, or synthesize the available scattered information on cytokines into general principles? This new guide provides an essential reference manual for all known cytokines, growth factors, interleukins and lymphokines as well as their receptors. Succinct, comprehensive and user-friendly this new guide book will become an essential companion for any scientist working in this rapidly expanding field.
