Signal Transduction and Smooth Muscle

Mohamed Trebak, Scott Earley
August 09, 2018

All hollow organs, such as blood vessels, the gastrointestinal tract, airways, male and female reproductive systems, and the urinary bladder are primarily composed of smooth muscle. Such organs regulate flow, propulsion and mixing of luminal contents and storage by the contraction and relaxation of...

Chromosomal Nonhistone Protein: Volume II: Immunology

L. S. Hnilica
July 27, 2018

The second volume of the Chromosomal Nonhistone Proteins treatise is dedicated in its entirety to the immunobiology of these proteins. Since immunological methods are adding rapidly to our knowledge of the specificity and intranuclear localization of chromosomal nonhistone proteins, a collection of...

A Probabilistic Model of the Genotype/Phenotype Relationship: Does Life Play the Dice?

Jean-Pierre Hugot
July 24, 2018

A Probabilistic Model of the Genotype/Phenotype Relationship provides a new hypothesis on the relationship between genotype and phenotype. The main idea of the book is that this relationship is probabilistic, in other words, the genotype does not fully explain the phenotype. This idea is developed...

Cell Therapy for Diseases of Skeletal Muscle

Martin K. Childers
July 15, 2018

This book deals with new therapies that use cells such as stem cells to treat, retard, or even cure devastating muscle diseases such as Parkinson's, Lou Gehrig's disease (ALS), and muscular dystrophy. The text is divided into two parts. The first part contains chapters by contributors establishing...

Cell Biology, Development and Morphogenesis

Andrew Dudley
July 15, 2018

This book presents the key problems in morphogenesis from a cell biological perspective. Each key problem is addressed in multiple chapters with each chapter providing a balanced, interdisciplinary perspective. Topics covered include the interplay between genetics, microenvironment and physical...

Chromosomal Nonhistone Protein: Volume I: Biology

L. S. Hnilica
June 28, 2018

The first volume of the Chromosomal Nonhistone Proteins treatise presents a summary of the many attempts in the literature to correlate changes in chromosomal histone proteins specificity and metabolism with transcriptional regulations in eukaryotic cells....

Chromosomal Nonhistone Protein: Volume III: Biochemistry

L. S. Hnilica
June 28, 2018

The third volume of the Chromosomal Nonhistone Proteins treatise deals with the isolation and analysis of chromosomal proteins in general with specific features of these proteins in particular. In addition to the high mobility group (HMG) proteins, post synthetic modifications of chromosomal...

Chromosomal Nonhistone Protein: Volume IV: Structural Associations

L. S. Hnilica
June 28, 2018

The fourth and last volume of Chromosomal Nonhistone Proteins sequence attempts to confront these macromolecules with the major structural elements of the cell nucleus (with the exception of nucleosomes which will be treated separately in a later treatise). Proteins of the chromosomes, nucleoli,...

Cells in Evolutionary Biology: Translating Genotypes into Phenotypes - Past, Present, Future

Brian K. Hall, Sally A. Moody
June 12, 2018

This book is the first in a projected series on Evolutionary Cell Biology, the intent of which is to demonstrate the essential role of cellular mechanisms in transforming the genotype into the phenotype by transforming gene activity into evolutionary change in morphology. This book —Cells in...

Gene and Cell Delivery for Intervertebral Disc Degeneration

Raquel Madeira Gonçalves, Mario Adolfo Barbosa
May 08, 2018

Intervertebral disc degeneration is one of the major causes of lower back pain for which the common therapeutic interventions are not efficient. A search for alternative therapies for lower back pain and intervertebral disc degeneration includes cell-based therapies. Unfortunately, intervertebral...

3D Cell Culture: Fundamentals and Applications in Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine

Ranjna C. Dutta, Aroop K. Dutta
April 30, 2018

3D cell culture is yet to be adopted and exploited to its full potential. It promises to upgrade and bring our understanding about human physiology to the highest level with the scope of applying the knowledge for better diagnosis as well as therapeutics. The focus of this book is on the direct...

The Physiology of Bioelectricity in Development, Tissue Regeneration and Cancer

Christine E. Pullar
April 18, 2018

Recent advances in technology have led to the unprecedented accuracy in measurements of endogenous electric fields around sites of tissue disruption. State-of-the-art molecular approaches demonstrate the role of bioelectricity in the directionality and speed of cell migration, proliferation,...
