About this book

Offers a state-of-the-art review by international experts on all aspects of tachykinin receptors, including neuropeptide/peptide and G-protein-linked receptors in general. It covers the physiology, pharmacology, biochemistry, and molecular biology of these receptors from both clinical and basic research points of view.

Topics treated by the distinguished contributors include the characterization of tachykinin receptors, the mechanisms of tachykinin receptor action, a reflection on future prospects, and a historical consideration of tachykinin research.

Reviews

...the major advances in this exciting area of neuropeptide biology are expertly reviewed by many of the leading investigators in this field...a useful volume to both the expert and the uninitiated...the contributors have succeeded in providing the most current information in this field...a well-written and organized text that is a pleasure to read. - Endocrine
