How do you keep track of basic information on the proteins you work with? Where do you find details of their physicochemical properties, amino acid sequences, gene organization? Are you tired of scanning review articles, primary papers and databases to locate that elusive fact? The new Academic Press FactsBook series will satisfy scientists and clinical researchers suffering from information overload. Each volume provides a catalogue of the essential properties of families of molecules. Gene organization, amino acid sequences, physiochemical properties, and biological activity are presented using a common, easy to follow format. Taken together they compile everything you wanted to know about proteins but were too busy to look for. The Adhesion Molecule FactsBookcontains over 50 entries on all currently cloned and characterized cell adhesion molecules, including the families of * integrins * cadherins * selectins * members of the immunoglobulin superfamily * and other relevant receptors Provides information on * alternative nomenclature, * tissue distribution and regulation of expression, * ligands, * gene organization and chromosomal location, * protein structure and molecular weights, * amino acid sequence of the most commonly studied organisms, * PIR, SWISSPROT, and EMBL/GenBank accession numbers, * biological function, * key referencesPigott, Rod is the author of 'Adhesion Molecules Facts Book - Rod Pigott - Paperback' with ISBN 9780125551809 and ISBN 0125551800.
