The papers in this volume were contributed by close friends, co-worker s and pupils of Professor Setsuro Ebashi. They are dedicated to him to commemorate his great and pioneering contribution to the advancement of muscle physiology and biochemistry, which, in time, exerted a great influence on the whole field of life science. We believe that this is sue reveals the present state of research on muscle and/or calcium tha t was opened up by Professor Ebashi.

Editorial Reviews

A collection of research papers by close friends, coworkers, and pupils of Professor Setsuro Ebashi, reprinted from , vol. 190, nos. 1 & 2, January (1999). Subjects include troponin I, calcium ion regulation of muscle contraction, properties and function of invertebrate new muscle protein, structural basis of the function of endothelin receptor, and dynamic regulation of intracellular calcium signals through calcium release channels. The editor works in the department of pharmacology at Niigata University School of Medicine in Japan. Lacks a subject index. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
