Item description for Biochemistry of Signal Transduction and Regulation by Gerhard Krauss...
This all-new edition of a classic text has been thoroughly revised to keep pace with the rapid progress in signal transduction research. With didactic skill and clarity, the author relates the observed biological phenomena to the underlying biochemical processes.
Directed at advanced students, teachers, and researchers in biochemistry and molecular biology, this book describes the molecular basis of signal transduction, regulated gene expression, the cell cycle, tumorigenesis and apoptosis.
From the reviews of the previous edition:
"Provides a comprehensive account of cell signaling and signal transduction and, where possible, explains these processes at the molecular level" ---Angewandte Chemie
"The clear and didactic presentation makes it a textbook very useful for students and researchers not familiar with all aspects of cell regulation." ---Biochemistry
"This book is actually two books: Regulation and Signal Transduction." ---Drug Research

More About Gerhard Krauss
Gerhard Krauss is Professor of Biochemistry at the University of Bayreuth (Germany). His resarch is centered on the mechanism of interaction of DNA binding proteins and their target DNA. He is specifically interested in transcription factor, DNA methyl transferases and nucleotide excision repair. The idea for a textbook on Signal Transduction and Gene Regulation originated from a lecture course that he has been teaching at Bayreuth since the middle of the 1990s.
Gerhard Krauss was born in 1951 and has an academic affiliation as follows - Laboratorium fur Biochemie, Universitat Bayreuth, D-95440 Bayreuth, Ge.

If you thought signal transduction was hard... Jul 20, 2002
One gets the sense upon reading this book that it was translated into English from some esoteric dead language and not from that close cousin of English, contemporary German. One would think that a book this expensive and a publisher this well-known would be able to fork out enough cash to hire a competent translator. If you thought signal transduction was Talmudic in its complexity, you will not be disappointed as you try to unravel the meaning of sentences in this truly awful and labored translation.
