Abstract:

"This book brings together current information on the families that make up the kinesin superfamily of molecular motors in one comprehensive text; an ideal reference for researchers looking to make comparisons between different families, for specific information on a family, or simply for an overview of the kinesin superfamily. Information is clearly structured and grouped according to individual families and organized in a standardized way, allowing the reader to search and retrieve information on this large superfamily of molecular motors and understand how its individual members carry out a diverse variety of cellular functions. Features: The first book dedicated to the entire kinesin superfamily Enables a fuller understanding of this family of proteins which is becoming an increasing focus of research due to its involvement in diseases such as cancer, neuropathies and ciliopathies. Written in a manner accessible to a range of researchers in the life and medical sciences, including biophysicists, biochemists, and medical researchers"--
