About this book


This book deals with anabolic mechanisms which regulate eukaryotic protein synthesis, with particular emphasis on insulin and amino acids. Six chapters written by leading experts in the field provide both new data and comprehensive literature reviews. The regulation of both the eIF2 and eIF4 groups of initiation factors by signal transduction mechanisms is presented, and translation is related to cellular growth in response to nutrient and hormonal signals.
