This book reviews the latest research into cell signalling in relation to drugs and endogenous agents, and also provides a survey of the process and operation of signalling. It is thoroughly edited and indexed, providing strategies and practical guidance as well as actual observations. Cell Signalling: Experimental Strategies is written by authors from the UK, Europe, Australia and the USA, many of whom provide a broad survey of their field of interest. This acts as very useful reading material to those unfamiliar with signalling mechanisms and concepts. This volume complements its predecessor Biochemical Approaches to Cellular Calcium (Methodological Surveys in Biochemistry and Analysis Vol 19).
