  • ABC Transporters in Human Diseaseby Karobi Moitra

    Biota Publishing 2012; US$ 40.00

    The ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporter genes are ubiquitous in the genomes of all vertebrates so far studied. The human ABC transporter superfamily contains 48 genes, subdivided into 7 subfamilies ranging from A to G (based on sequence homology of their nucleotide binding domains). The ABC proteins encoded by these genes are ATP-driven transmembrane... more...

  • Purinergic Signalling and the Nervous Systemby Geoffrey Burnstock; Alexei Verkhratsky

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 227.54

    In the first 20 years that followed the purinergic signalling hypothesis in 1972, most scientists were sceptical about its validity, largely because ATP was so well established as an intracellular molecule involved in cell biochemistry and it seemed unlikely that such a ubiquitous molecule would act as an extracellular signalling molecule. However,... more...
