Tumors and Cancers: Head – Neck – Heart – Lung – Gut

Dongyou Liu
September 14, 2017

Tumors and cancers are insidious diseases characterized by uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells that extend beyond their usual boundaries and disrupt the normal functions of affected organs. Forming the second of the four volumes devoted to tumors and cancers, this volume focuses on the head/neck,...

RNAi Technology

R. K. Gaur, Yedidya Gafni, P. Sharma, V. K. Gupta
September 12, 2017

RNAi technology is used for large-scale screens that systematically shut down each gene in the cell, which can help identify the components necessary for a particular cellular process or an event such as cell division. Exploitation of the pathway is also a promising tool in biotechnology and...

TRP Channels

Michael X. Zhu
September 12, 2017

The rapid expansion of the TRP field has generated a large amount of excellent original work across many different research fields. However, investigators are not necessarily familiar with the pros and cons of the variety of methods used to study TRP channels. Because of functional and genetic...

Copper Amine Oxidases: Structures, Catalytic Mechanisms and Role in Pathophysiology

Giovanni Floris, Bruno Mondovi
September 12, 2017

Although the amount of research on copper amine oxidases has grown rapidly and substantially in the past decade, the field unfortunately suffers from lack of cohesion and significant confusion surrounds aspects as simple as confirmation of enzyme identities. This book describes the structure of the...
