About this item
The two neuropilin genes encode scaffold receptors that can bind several different ligands, and in addition the neuropilins associate with many other receptors and modify their activity too. They have been found to play important roles in the shaping of major organs and tissues such as the nervous system and the vascular system, and to modulate immune responses. The aim of the book is to cover basic research topics such as structure-function relationships of neuropilins and mechanisms of neuropilin mediated signal transduction, to address the most important roles of the neuropilins in developmental biology, and lastly, to address their roles in diseases such as cancer and various eye diseases. The book is intended to provide a helpful source for biomedical researchers and is written for Scientists in Neurosciences, Vascular and Molecular Biology as well as Developmental Biology and Immunology.
