This book provides an overview of critical components of cell signaling machinery and its role in epithelial morphogenesis, proliferation, invasions and angiogenesis in human cancer and discusses novel types of protein kinase pathways.
Identifies various signaling molecules like GRB2 growth factors, A1B1, STAT, TGFß
Provides a critical assessment of surrogate markers involved in the emergence and progression of cancer
Covers the basic principle that drive oncogenesis and pharmacological interventions that lead to therapies
