This reference offers detailed discussions of the basic aspects of signal transduction, and examines their applications in lung cell biology. Providing an overview of current research directions, Signal Transduction in Lung Cells covers: the structure and function of receptors; the structure and regulation of G proteins; second messenger systems including kinases and phosphatases; airway and alveolar cells; smooth muscle cells; inflammatory and immune cells; muscle tone, ion channels, growth factors and cytokines.;With over 1900 literature citations and figures, Signal Transduction in Lung Cells is intended as a resource for pulmonologists, physiologists, molecular and cell biologists, pharmacologists, and graduate and medical school students in these disciplines.A schematic diagram of the components of this system is presented in Fig. 1. Our current understanding of the phosphoinositide/Caaquot; cascade germinates from a review by Michell (Michell, 1975), who recognized the link between theanbsp;...
