Abstract

The knowledge that very different processes such as normal and neoplastic cell growth, reproduction and death are dependent on the presence of adequate levels of transglutaminases (TGase: EC 2.3.2.13) and that they are capable of affecting the differentiation and proliferative capability of several cell types, has prompted a multitude of researchers to study these fascinating molecules. In the following overview we intend to summarize the currently known information on the biological significance of these enzymes.
