The Cell: A Very Short Introduction 

In this Very Short Introduction, Terrence Allen and Graham Cowling offer an illuminating account of the nature of cells–their basic structure, forms, division, signaling, and programmed death. Allen and Cowling start with the simple “prokaryotic” cell–cells with no nucleus–and show how the bodies of more…

Study on the Cellular Regulation and Function of Lysine Malonylation, Glutarylation and Crotonylation (Springer Theses) 

This book presents pioneering findings on the characterization of cellular regulation and function for three recently identified protein posttranslational modifications (PTMs): lysine malonylation (Kmal), glutarylation (Kglu) and crotonylation (Kcr). It addresses three main topics: (i) Detecting Kmal substrates using a chemical reporter, which provides important…
