Many of the toxic effects elicited by xenobiotics can be explained at the molecular level by their interaction with receptors or by disruption or interference with receptor-mediated signal transduction pathways. This volume describes molecular approaches and reviews of current research. It provides reviews of numerous research areas which are directly related to the analysis of the molecular mechanism by which xenobiotics modulate signal transduction and gene expression.
