Cellular Signal Processing presents the essential concepts underlying cell signaling. It is based on a unifying principle that traces cell signaling to biochemical switching reactions that link protein-protein interactions with energy production. Designed for use by undergraduate and graduate students in cell biology, biochemistry, and pharmacology courses, as well as medical students, it examines the cell as a data processing unit in which the proteins form an extremely complex and ever-changing network of interactions. The book emphasizes the evolutionary aspects of cell signaling and illuminates the analogies in communication among cellular, neuronal, and data-processing mechanisms. Features include a unique chapter on prokaryotic signal processing, discussion of the clinical aspects of cell signaling in health and disease, and an illustration program that highlights the major concepts.
