Molecular Biology of the Cell, Third Edition is the best-selling and widely-acclaimed upper-level cell biology textbook.

Generously illustrated in full color and featuring many new panels, drawings, and diagrams, the Third Edition is completely reorganized to reflect new discoveries, new emphases, and new approaches. It covers major advances in signal transduction, intracellular protein sorting, gene regulation, control of cell division, and developmental biology. The biology of plants and the nervous system are integrated throughout the main text. The Third Edition also extensively updates coverage of immunology and cancer, and adds two new chapters that examine recombinant DNA technique and proteins as machines.

Part I covers elementary principles, basic biochemistry, and the principles of the main experimental methods for investigating cells. Parts II and III represent the central core of cell biology and are concerned mainly with those properties that are common to most eucaryotic cells. Part II deals with the expression and transmission of genetic information, while Part III discusses the internal organization of cells. Part IV follows the behavior of cells in multicellular organisms, starting with cell-cell jucntions and extra-cellular matrix and ending with the disruption of multicellular organizations that occurs in cancer.

    Perfect for the cell bio student and lab technician

    This book is perfect for the essentials of cell and molecular biology as taught at most major universities. It is also a very thorough reference for those working in the molecular biology field as a technician. The chapters are organized well with enough information to be able to assemble the 'big picture' and extract more from complicated and often convoluted scientific journals. The book is well written and very thorough and will satisfy even the most stringent requirements of any cell/molecular bio professor.
