About this book


This second of two volumes discusses subfamily proteins involved in nucleo-cytoplasmic and vesicular transport mechanisms inside the cell. In this volume, the focus lies on the Rab, Ran and Arf subfamily members. Like Volume 1, the book was written by internationally renowned scientists in the field of small G-proteins. The biochemistry, structure, function and G-protein/effector interactions are described in detailed reviews. Together with Volume 1, this book provides a comprehensive and state-of-the-art work on small G-proteins (GTPases). It was written for graduates and professors in biochemistry and cell biology interested in the mechanism and function of small G-proteins, but also offers an extremely valuable resource for those readers who are new to the field.
