Vitamin B12: Advances and Insights

Rima Obeid
January 11, 2017

Cobalamin (vitamin B12) was discovered in the first half of the 20th century. Vast amount of information on the role of the vitamins in human health and disease became available. Cobalamin science was, however, based on theoretical concepts that have been accepted without further proof of facts and...

Chiroptical Spectroscopy: Fundamentals and Applications

Prasad L. Polavarapu
August 23, 2016

This book details chiroptical spectroscopic methods: electronic circular dichroism (ECD), optical rotatory dispersion (ORD), vibrational circular dichroism (VCD), and vibrational Raman optical activity (VROA). For each technique, the text presents experimental methods for measurements and...

Proteolysis in the Interstitial Space

Salvatore V. Pizzo, Roger L. Lundblad, Monte S. Willis
August 18, 2016

Most clinical laboratory tests utilize interstitial and extravascular such as blood, urine, cerebral spinal fluid (CSF), and saliva. For example, CSF is monitored in the context of cancer for both diagnostic and therapeutic reasons. And yet, our understanding of the makeup of interstitial fluids,...
