Full text of Cell Signalling Biology by Michael J. Berridge
The primary aim of this website is to describe the biology of cell signalling. The emerging information on cell signalling pathways is integrated and presented within the context of specific cell types and processes. The first half of the website characterizes the components and properties of the major cell signalling pathways, with special emphasis on how they are switched on and off. The second half of the website deals with the way these different signalling pathways are employed to control the life history of cells from their birth during the process of cell proliferation, their differentiation into specific cell types to carry out different cell functions, and finally their death through processes such as apoptosis.
