Calcium-binding proteins form a large family and have many functions within the cell, including decoding cellular signals. This is an active and expanding area of research, with new and important discoveries continually being made. This newest book in the Sambrook and Tooze Guidebook Series comprehensively details all that is currently known about the calcium-binding proteins. Biochemists will find this book particularly useful, as will biologists in many fields in which the calcium-binding proteins are involved, such as neuroscience.
