Biophysical Chemistry

Dagmar Klostermeier, Markus G. Rudolph
December 19, 2017

Biophysical Chemistry explores the concepts of physical chemistry and molecular structure that underlie biochemical processes. Ideally suited for students of life sciences, but equally accessible to students and scientists in related fields, the book concisely describes the fundamental aspects of...

Na+H+ Exchange

S. Grinstein
December 13, 2017

Prepared by leading scientists in the field, these volumes compile for the first time, concise, up-to-date reviews of several aspects of the basic properties, distribution, function and regulation of the Na+/H+ antiport. In addition, current methods and the use of inhibitors and ligands for the...

December 13, 2017

A useful reference for those using or interested in cultured invertebrate cells, this two-volume text provides information about techniques and advances in invertebrate tissue culture. Cell lines for Insecta, Crustacea, Mollusca, and Nematoda are introduces along with their characterizations....

Interleukin-2 and Killer Cells in Cancer

Eva Lotzova
December 13, 2017

This is the first-and only-publication available which provides the most recent information in this particular field of biomedicine. Interleukin-2 (IL-2) and IL-2 activated killer cells have been shown to have a potential in the treatment of a variety of human malignant diseases. This work...

Organization of the Extracellular Matrix: A Polarization Microscopic Approach

Laszlo Modis
December 13, 2017

This book describes analysis techniques and results of topics such as physical backgrounds, chemical backgrounds, and principal methods of topo-optical reactions used in ultrastructure research of the ECM; orientation patterns of GAGs and collagen in different tissues/cartilage, cornea, kidney...

Type-B Cytochromes: Sensors and Switches

J.L. Kiel
December 13, 2017

This book describes cellular level sensors that act as switches, turning on gene expression and other metabolic processes necessary for cell survival and differentiation. These responses can also initiate programmed cell death or activate latent human immunodeficiency virus or animal leukemia...

Intracellular Calcium-Dependent Proteolysis

Ronald L. Mellgren
December 13, 2017

Intracellular Calcium-Dependent Proteolysis explains what is now known about calpains, which are intracellular, non-lysosomal enzymes involved in intracellular protein catabolism. The book provides a comprehensive overview of topics ranging from the molecular biology of the calpains and their...

Immobilized Cells and Organelles: Volume II

December 13, 2017

Cells and organelles are small units for biochemical synthetic purposes, often the smallest practically feasible unit since they contain coenzyme regenerating system, ordered enzyme sequences, etc.These volumes, besides giving some insight into basic technology (immobilisation procedures, etc.),...
