Mechanisms of Intracellular Trafficking and Processing of ProProteins provides an in-depth discussion of the cellular organization and current views of the molecular mechanisms underlying the trafficking, sorting, and processing of various classes of proproteins. The book covers the mechanisms of pro-protein translocation across the rough endoplasmic reticulum (RER) membrane and subsequent transport to the Golgi apparatus, molecular sorting and retention signals involved in directing pro-proteins to various cellular compartments, and the specific enzymes mediating different posttranslational modification steps. It is the only book that covers the principles of intracellular trafficking and processing of proproteins using examples representative of different classes of proproteins in the cell. New classes of enzymes, especially proteases with unique specificities, are examined as well.
Mechanisms of Intracellular Trafficking and Processing of ProProteins presents a wealth of information valuable to cell biologists, endocrinologists, neurobiologists, enzymologists, and biochemists. Students studying molecular endocrinology, neurobiology, and cell biology will also find the book to be a useful text.
