This is the second volume of the Airways Smooth Muscle series to focus on the pharmacological control of airways smooth muscle tone. Each monograph concentrates on the expression and distribution of peptide receptors and describes how their activation may modulate airways calibre at the biochemical level. In addition, specific chapters are presented on those ion channels and transporter proteins that are currently believed to play major roles in regulating contractility. Current theories regarding signaling at steroid receptors are also considered. Containing reviews of the latest research developments in the field, Peptide Receptors, Ion Channels and Signal Transduction will prove an invaluable source of reference for pharmacologists, biochemists, clinicians and other biological scientists interested in drug-receptor interactions.
