Basic Biophysics for Biology

1st Edition

Edward K. Ph.D Yeargers
November 29, 2017

Basic Biophysics for Biology presents the fundamental physical and chemical principles required to understand much of modern biology. The author has made extensive use of illustrations rather than a mathematical approach to establish connections between macroscopic-world models and submicroscopic...

Gene Expression Studies Using Affymetrix Microarrays

1st Edition

Hinrich Gohlmann, Willem Talloen
November 03, 2017

The Affymetrix GeneChip® system is one of the most widely adapted microarray platforms. However, due to the overwhelming amount of information available, many Affymetrix users tend to stick to the default analysis settings and may end up drawing sub-optimal conclusions. Written by a molecular...

Aging: Exploring a Complex Phenomenon

1st Edition

Shamim I. Ahmad
October 25, 2017

This book is a detailed and comprehensive synthesis of the scientific study of aging. Dozens of contributions from leading scholars review various theories of aging, and molecular, cellular, biochemical and microbial aspects of aging, among just a few of the topics included. Authoritative, wide...

Hydrogen Peroxide Metabolism in Health and Disease

1st Edition

Margreet C M Vissers, Mark Hampton, Anthony J. Kettle
October 16, 2017

Much of the biology of oxidative stress and oxidative signalling centres on the generation and handling of hydrogen peroxide. The overall aim for this book would be to provide an insightful and useful forum to assist with the understanding of the relevance of hydrogen peroxide generation and how...

The Biology of the First 1,000 Days

1st Edition

Crystal D Karakochuk, Kyly C. Whitfield, Tim J Green, Klaus Kraemer
September 20, 2017

The first 1,000 days, from conception to two years of age, is a critical period of growth and development. Exposures to dietary, environmental, hormonal, and other stressors during this window have been associated with an increased risk of poor health outcomes, some of which are irreversible. The...

1st Edition

David J. Newman, Gordon M. Cragg, Paul Grothaus
September 18, 2017

Chemical Biology of Natural Products This unique, long-awaited volume is designed to address contemporary aspects of natural product chemistry and its influence on biological systems, not solely on human interactions. The subjects covered include discovery, isolation and characterization,...

Autophagy and Signaling

1st Edition

Esther Wong
September 14, 2017

Autophagy and Signaling is an up-to-date overview of the many signaling pathways regulating autophagy in response to different cellular needs. Discussion includes the status and future directions of autophagy signaling research with respect to different aspects of health and disease. These include...

Biology and Breeding of Crucifers

1st Edition

Surinder Kumar Gupta
September 12, 2017

Considerable interest has developed in recent years in crucifers and particularly in their wild relatives, as they contain genetic material that may be utilized for further evolution of superior crop varieties through introgression and distant hybridization. Until now, there has been no single...

Biomedical Application of Nanoparticles

1st Edition

Bertrand Henri Rihn
September 07, 2017

Biomedical Application of Nanoparticles explores nanoparticles, their chemical and physicals properties, and how they interact in biological systems with proteins, immune system and targeted cells. Risk assessment of nanoparticles for human is described, including: cellular paradigms,...

Neurobiology of TRP Channels

1st Edition

Tamara Luti Rosenbaum Emir
September 07, 2017

During the last two decades, there has been an explosion of research pertaining to the molecular mechanisms that allow for organisms to detect different stimuli that is an essential feature for their survival. Among these mechanisms, living beings need to be able to respond to different...

Telomeres, Diet and Human Disease: Advances and Therapeutic Opportunities

1st Edition

Amelia Marti, Guillermo Zalba
August 16, 2017

The maintenance of telomeres—repetitive sequences at the end of chromosome—is essential to health. Dysfunction in telomere maintenance pathways plays a role in aging, cancer, atherosclerosis and other diseases. This has led to telomere maintenance as a prime target for patient therapies. This book...
