About this book
The Rho GTPases in Cancer is the first volume to collect and summarize the current understanding of the Rho GTPases and their involvement in the progression of human cancer. The critical role of the Rho GTPases, their regulatory proteins, and their effectors in cancer progression has become increasingly evident over the past decade. As translational research increases on these proteins, their importance as keystone molecules in vital cellular process is highlighted. Thus, these molecules represent a major class of potential therapeutic targets that could be exploited clinically. This aspect of Rho GTPase biology is developing, therefore the contents of The Rho GTPases in Cancer should prove of interest to clinicians and members of the cancer research community wishing to develop new treatments for cancer.
