Описание: Many people have asked for whom this book has been written and the most honest answer must be that it has been written for ourselves. It is our hope that it will also be both instructive and entertaining for students and professionals at many levels. We hope it avoids the worst excesses of the skimpily edited multi-author texts written by specialists, but necessarily this means that we have had to tread warily in areas in which none of us has first-hand experience, let alone expertise. Although we have touched the front edges of the subject, we have also endeavoured to provide an elementary basis with some historical background to all the topics covered. There has been no attempt to be comprehensive and we are aware that important topics that well qualify for inclusion in a book having the title Signal Transduction are conspicuous only by their absence. An obvious example must be the signalling processes that guide early embryonic development. Another is the field of signal transduction in plants.
