Lavishly illustrated and highly accessible, this new textbook of cell biology is incredibly easy to read. Presents each subject as a series of separate two-page spreads so you can quickly reference specific topics or categories of interest.
1. Cellular organization: organelle structure and function. 2. Genes and gene expression. 3. Proteins: the molecular basis of cell machinery. 4. Membranes and membrane transport. 5. Organelles: compartmentalization of cellular functions and protein targeting. 6. Cell to cell signalling: chemical signalling and signal transduction across membranes. 7. Signal transduction: electrical signalling. 9. The cytoskeleton and muscle contraction. 10. Adhesion molecules. 11. The extracellular matrix. 12. Cell migration/motility. 13. Cell growth, cell division and the cell cycle. Appendices. 1. Abbreviations. 2. Tools of molecular cell biology: biochemical, cell biological and immunological. 3. Tools of molecular cell biology: genetic methods. 4. Tools of molecular cell biology: electrical recording (electrophysiology). Index.
