This book provides an up-to-date review of our understanding of smooth muscle and integrates molecular, cellular and physiological information with tissue and anatomical studies. Well-known researchers have written chapters giving detailed reviews of our current knowledge of the biochemistry, pharmacology, physiology, and anatomy of smooth muscle. In particular, they cover the seven most important areas of smooth muscle function including morphology, electrophysiology, mechanisms of electromechanical and pharmacomechanical coupling, calcium homeostasis, signal transduction, mechanics of contraction, and the contractile proteins.

Industry Reviews

"This book will be very useful to researchers in the field of smooth muscle. The editors have succeeded in developing a set of general principles of smooth muscle function, while still emphasizing the diversity in various organs. I highly recommend this well-written and stimulating book to anyone interested in the field." Doody's Journal and Doody's Quarterly "By organizing the vast current knowledge of smooth muscles into a volume of manageable size the authors of this book have done a great service...This book should be recommended to all colleagues who are either working on the smooth muscle system or planning to do so." The Physiologist
