Calcium and Cell Function: Volume 3: v. 3 (Molecular by Wai Yiu Cheung

By Wai Yiu Cheung

Calcium and mobilephone functionality, quantity III covers the numerous features of study on calcium, facing its biochemistry, biology, and pharmacology in animals in addition to in vegetation. The booklet discusses a singular mobile signaling process in keeping with the combination of phospholipid and calcium metabolism; the delivery of calcium by way of sarcoplasmic reticulum; and the energetics and chemistry for interactions among calmodulin and calmodulin-binding proteins. The textual content additionally describes the specificity of trifluoperazine and similar phenothiazines for calcium-binding proteins; the constitution, functionality, and rules of phosphorylase kinase; and the rules of glycogen synthase via a number of protein kinases. The function of calmodulin in synaptic functionality and neurosecretion; the stimulation of the synthesis of neurotransmitters through calmodulin-dependent phosphorylation; in addition to the position of calcium in axoplasmic shipping in nerve also are thought of. The booklet extra tackles calcium regulate of the intestinal microvillus cytoskeleton; the potential function of calmodulin within the legislation of insulin liberate and protein phosphorylation by way of calcium and cyclic AMP; and the position of calcium in mediating mobile features very important for development and improvement in better crops. The textual content additionally seems into the localization of calmodulin in tissue tradition cells; and the characterization and rules of calcium-dependent impartial protease. Zoologists, cellphone biologists, biochemists, and pharmacologists will locate the ebook invaluable.
