Molecular Biology Reference from C.H.I.P.S.

Cell Cycle and Growth Control
Biomolecular Regulation
and Cancer
Second Edition
edited by Gary S. Stein
and Arthur B. Pardee

Cell Cycle and Growth Control: Biomolecular Regulation and Cancer provides a solid basis for understanding cell cycle and growth control as it relates to biological regulation, with a special emphasis on examining these processes in the context of cancer.

Newly updated with the latest significant advances, this Second Edition features:

  • Cutting-edge applications in clinical diagnostics and therapeutics
  • Focus on mechanisms mediating the control of proliferation
  • Numerous clear illustrations
  • Extensive bibliography
  • Well-recognized, expert chapter authors
  • Video clips on accompanying Web site showing cell cycle control

Cell Cycle and Growth Control offers both an introduction to important concepts and detailed discussion of regulatory mechanisms at the cellular, biochemical, genetic, and molecular levels. The only book to comprehensively cover both the foundations and cutting-edge advances in understanding cell cycle and growth control, this text also contains an expert perspective on innovative strategies for cancer treatment, making it a vital companion for researcher and clinician alike.
