MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

This volume gathers the latest exciting findings on ADP-ribosylation from renowned experts in the field. It includes ten chapters, organized into the following three thematic sections:

·   Evolution and detection of endogenous ADP-ribosylation

·   ADP-ribosylation by the ARTC family of ADP-ribosyltransferases (R-S-E ARTs)

·   ADP-ribosylation by the ARTD family of ADP-ribosyltransferases (H-Y-E ARTs)

The book will provide readers a better understanding of ADP-ribosylating toxins and their endogenous relatives. This provides a basis for developing novel toxin-neutralizing drugs and drugs targeting endogenous ADP-ribosyltransferase relatives.


Feature:

Broadens your understanding of endogenous mono-ADP-ribosylation reactions

Brings together exciting recent findings on ADP-ribosylation

Written by leading experts in the field
