Small GTPases and Their Regulators Part G

Small GTPases play a key position in lots of facets of up to date telephone biology: regulate of telephone development and differentiation; law of mobile adhesion and mobile flow; the association of the actin cytoskeleton; and the rules of intracellular vesicular shipping. This quantity plus its significant other Volumes 255 and 256 hide all biochemical and organic assays presently in use for examining the function of small GTPases in those elements of mobilephone biology on the molecular point.

Sigma Receptors: Chemistry, Cell Biology and Clinical Implications

Sigma receptors are promising drug improvement pursuits for a number of neurological, psychiatric, oncological, immunological, cardiovascular, ophthalmological, and gastrointestinal problems. they're structurally specific proteins which are unique from classical G protein-coupled receptors, ionotropic receptors, or receptor tyrosine kinases.
