Protein Kinases in Blood Cell Function provides an up-to-date, comprehensive review of protein kinases in various types of blood cell function. Blood cells discussed include T lymphocytes, B lymphocytes, platelets, mast cells, neutrophils, and macrophages.
The book will interest pathologists, physiologists, oncologists, hematologists, leukocyte biologists, and immunologists. It will also benefit anyone interested in signal transduction and blood cell functions such as host defense, hemostasis, and immune response.
