This updated and expanded Second Edition of The Adhesion Molecule FactsBook has nearly double the number of entries of the First Edition, and provides a compendium of the major cell surface adhesion molecules. The introductory chapters detail the organization of the data in the entries section, provide a background to the main adhesion molecule families, and inform the reader how to access information on adhesion molecules on the Internet. The entries have been designed to allow the reader to quickly establish the main structure and functional features of each molecule and where to find information.
Tissue distribution and regulation of expression
Gene organization and chromosomal location
Protein structure and molecular weights
Amino acid sequence of the most commonly studied organisms
PIR, SWISSPROT, and EMBL/GenBank accession numbers
Researchers and research clinicians in immunology, cell biology, molecular and developmental biology, and biochemistry

Clare Isacke received her undergraduate degree in biochemistry in Oxford, her D.Phil. in Oxford working with John Heath and Chris Graham on growth control and differentiation of embryonal carcinoma cells. She worked as a postdoctoral fellow at the Salk Institute in La Jolla, California, with Tony Hunter and Ian Trowbridge on cell adhesion and tyrosine kinase receptors. She has been at Imperial College now for 10 years during which time the lab has been focussing on cell adhesion receptor. Isacke did a three-year stint in the Biochemistry Department at Imperial College setting up her own lab within the Colin Hopkins empire and then moved over to the Biology Department taking up a University-funded post.
