ADP-Ribosylation as a Cellular Control Mechanism

  • Sydney Shall
Part of the Proceedings in Life Sciences book series (LIFE SCIENCES)


It is now about 21 years since the discovery of poly(ADP-ribose). This coming of age is reflected also in the interest and importance of ADP-ribosylation reactions in cell and molecular biology.
