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

By Wai Yiu Cheung

Calcium and telephone functionality, quantity III covers the numerous points of study on calcium, facing its biochemistry, biology, and pharmacology in animals in addition to in vegetation. The e-book discusses a unique mobile signaling process in accordance with the mixing of phospholipid and calcium metabolism; the delivery of calcium by means 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 comparable phenothiazines for calcium-binding proteins; the constitution, functionality, and legislation of phosphorylase kinase; and the law of glycogen synthase via a number of protein kinases. The position of calmodulin in synaptic functionality and neurosecretion; the stimulation of the synthesis of neurotransmitters by means of calmodulin-dependent phosphorylation; in addition to the function of calcium in axoplasmic delivery in nerve also are thought of. The booklet additional tackles calcium regulate of the intestinal microvillus cytoskeleton; the prospective function of calmodulin within the legislation of insulin unlock and protein phosphorylation by way of calcium and cyclic AMP; and the position of calcium in mediating mobile services very important for development and improvement in greater crops. The textual content additionally seems into the localization of calmodulin in tissue tradition cells; and the characterization and legislation of calcium-dependent impartial protease. Zoologists, phone biologists, biochemists, and pharmacologists will locate the ebook invaluable.
