9780125551809: Factsbook Set: Adhesion Molecule Factsbook

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.

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 references

It contains over 80 entries (nearly twice the number of the previous edition) on all currently cloned and characterized cell adhesion molecules, including the families of

  • integrins
  • cadherins
  • selectins
  • members of the immunoglobulin superfamily
  • syndecans
  • and other relevant receptors

Provides information on:

  • protein structure and molecular weights
  • amino acid sequence of the most commonly studied organisms
  • gene organization and chromosomal location
