Cell Signalling

Fourth Edition

John T. Hancock

  • A focus on common components and concepts, rather than mechanistic detail, allows the student to gain a thorough understanding of the principles that underpin cell signalling
  • The ubiquity of key signalling mechanisms is highlighted, enabling students to see how similar mechanisms are conserved and harnessed in many biological systems
  • Full colour diagrams and 3D protein models enliven the text, and enable students to visualize more easily the processes and concepts described
  • A range of pedagogical features – including Case Studies, Literature Links, and a series of online Journal Clubs – help students to understand the experimental nature of the subject, engage with the primary literature, and develop their critical thinking skills

New to this Edition:

  • New full colour diagrams help students to visualize the key concepts explained in the text more effectively
  • Case Studies explore pieces of research that have been particularly valuable in elucidating different aspects of cell signalling and the impact of the experimental approaches used
  • What next? sections highlight exciting new areas of research in cell signalling, fostering thought and discussion
  • A series of online Journal Clubs encourage students to read and evaluate the primary research literature
