Glioma Signaling is a text reference on cellular signaling processes focused on the mechanism of nucleotide receptors activation by exogenic nucleotides and the formation of complex signaling cascades, including cytoplasmic transcription factors, induced by growth factors, cytokines and cannabinoids. The book provides a framework explaining how signal transduction elements may modulate glioma cytoskeleton structure, cytoplasmic calcium concentration changes, cellular growth, progression and invasion, as well as presents perspective concerning potential targets for glioma therapy.
