Cover: “The Human Kinome”—Courtesy of the Invitrogen Corporation. This circular diagram is an artistic interpretation of the phylogenetic relationships between all members of the human kinase family. Bioinformatics analysis concluded that the superfamily comprises 517 distinct protein kinases. The kinases are organized into nine major groups labeled and colored distinctly. The three-dimensional structure in the middle of the diagram is a model based on cAMP-dependent protein kinase. See full caption here.
