Shelves: textbooks Occasionally unclear and frustrating in its verbosity. Still better than the professor at explaining portions of the material, so I can't complain too much. Science textbooks tend to get very pompous once you reach a certain level, and many of the passages should be rephrased to make the material more approachable and comprehensible.

Freeman and Company, New York , , pp. Cell biology instructors are blessed with the availability of a variety of cell biology texts that can satisfy most tastes.
Both are exhaustive texts with images and figures with a large set of ancillary materials. Across the 23—26 years that these two texts have been in print, the writing style and visual presentation styles have remained consistent and unique to each. My personal taste has always favored MBC but I cannot make a reasoned argument as to why one is better than the other.
Minor reductions in font size, image and figure sizes, as well as judicious editing have kept the text from expanding in proportion to the exploding knowledge base with which the authors must cope. Previous editions ended with a chapter on cancer; the authors have now added two nice chapters to Part IV on the cell biology of nerve cells and the immune response, preceding their final chapter on cancer.
Cell signaling has become an increasingly rich topic in MBC, as chapters devoted to it increased from one to three chapters across three editions. The current edition now has two excellent chapters on cell signaling, one focused on immediate metabolic responses and the other on signaling leading to changes in gene expression. The chapter on the integration of cell signaling in the previous edition has been incorporated into subsequent chapters.
The authors bring remarkable clarity to the cell signaling, secretion, and cytoskeleton chapters with regard to the emergent complexity inherent to these areas of cell biology, and this is apparent in the narrative as well as in the accompanying figures and tables.
I have only two major complaints about the content. First, insulin signaling is given surprisingly brief discussion the authors simply lump it into the RTK family and focus on other growth factors.
Indeed, the insulin receptor story is not only as rich as that of any other RTK family member but also its importance to human health carries more immediate impact to students. They introduce the correct ploidy of cells in meiosis in the Chapter 1 Fig. However, when they return to meiosis in detail in Chapter 20, they return to the confusions present in the previous two editions.
Molecular Cell Biology 6 Ed.
Harvey F. With its acclaimed author team, cutting-edge content, and coverage based on landmark experiments, Molecular Cell Biology has earned an impeccable reputation with instructors. The new Sixth Edition is a dramatic revision of the classic text featuring expanded coverage of immunology and development, and new media tools for students and instructors. Kaiser , Monty Krieger , Matthew P. He is well known for his work on cell membrane physiology, particularly the biosynthesis of many cell-surface proteins, and on the cloning and functional analysis of several cell-surface receptor proteins, such as the erythropoietin and TGF receptors.
His laboratory also studies hematopoietic stem cells and has identified novel proteins that support their proliferation. Lodish teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in cell biology and biotechnology. Other Editions Friend Reviews. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up.

Sort order. Feb 17, Rohit rated it liked it Shelves: Language of book is difficult compare to other books available for Molecular biology at undergraduate level. More emphasis is on complex systems and principles.
Poor character development, confusing storyline and disjointed progression of events ie. Literature at its worst. View all 3 comments. Jun 10, Rahele Shahan rated it really liked it. Just i can say: The book which these days i live with.

I've fallen asleep on this a couple of times. By no means an easy read. The best molecular cell biology book out of the ones I went through. Succumbs to the typical failing in biology books - when in doubt, barrage them with facts. Alberts- excessively reliant on abstruse terminology which it defines once and once only. You'll cut your poor fingers to ribbons flipping back and forth from the index to the one place your term is defined to what you were reading.
Lodish - Clear, not afraid of chemistry or math, precise, great. Best of all, it does not use a five syllable word where a bisyllabic one will do. Feb 20, Ofer rated it liked it.
This book covers about the same material as Albert's Biology of the Cell. There is a religious war as to which book is better.
Having both on my desk, I can tell you that I tend to reach to Lodish more often. But neither books are perfect and I often end up looking things up in wikipedia, Watson's Biology of the Gene, and Lehninger's Biochemistry. Nov 02, Jess rated it did not like it.
