The papers in this volume were contributed by close friends, co-workers and pupils of Professor Setsuro Ebashi. They are dedicated to him to commemorate his great and pioneering contribution to the advancement of muscle physiology and biochemistry, which, in time, exerted a great influence on the whole field of life science. We believe that this issue reveals the present state of research on muscle and/or calcium that was opened up by Professor Ebashi.
In this groundbreaking book, leading experts detail the cellular and molecular cascades that cause selective degeneration of neuronal populations, and illuminate those genetic and environmental factors that are critical to the facilitation or suppression of the neuropathologic processes. Working from studies of human patients, as well as from cell culture and animal models, the authors demonstrate a heretofore unrecognized convergence of the causative... more...
Lippincott’s Illustrated Reviews: Physiology brings physiology clearly into focus. Brand new to the LIR arsenal, it tells the story of who we are, how we live, and, ultimately, how we die. By first identifying organ function and then showing how cells and tissues are designed to fulfill that function, LIR Physiology decodes this discipline like no other text or review book. Each element was tailored for ease of use... more...
The Biology of Cancer is a textbook for undergraduate and graduate biology students as well as medical students studying the molecular and cellular bases of cancer. The book presents the principles of cancer biology in an organized, cogent, and in-depth manner. The clarity of writing and the lucid full-color art program make the book accessible and engaging. The information unfolds through the presentation of key experiments which give... more...
Metabolic Syndrome Pathophysiology: The Role of Essential Fatty Acids provides current research exploring the links among insulin, insulin receptors, polyunsaturated fatty acids, brain growth and disease. Specific interactions of essential fatty acids and polyunsaturated fatty acids in brain development and several disease groups are described. The role of inflammation in disease and how fatty acids regulate low-systemic inflammation are examined and... more...
The papers in this volume represent the proceedings of the XIIth North American Testis Workshop held in Tampa, Florida, April 1993 and put forth recent developments in the study of endocrine and gametogenic functions of the male gonad.
Dr. Stoelting's best-selling and highly acclaimed text, Pharmacology and Physiology in Anesthetic Practice, is now in its thoroughly updated Fourth Edition. In 60 concise, clearly written chapters, this book provides comprehensive, current, clinically oriented, authoritative information on all aspects of pharmacology and physiology that are relevant to perioperative patient management. This edition includes all new... more...
Highly skilled experimenters present key techniques for the multidisciplinary study of inflammation in such conditions as inflammatory bowel disease, rheumatoid arthritis, renal disease, and cardiovascular disease. Described in step-by-step detail to ensure experimental success, the techniques are focused on the research and development of potential new antiinflammatory drugs in active target areas. The protocols are suitable for many current areas of... more...
This comprehensive advanced text on the biology and pathology of glial cells--the most numerous cells in the brain and an emerging field in neuroscience--offers detailed coverage of the morphology and interrelationships between glial cells and neurones in different parts of the nervous system. An accompanying website offers downloadable figures and slides.
The KLK proteins and their encoding genes are increasingly attracting attention among scientists and clinicians worldwide as they represent interesting and functionally distinct biomarkers both under physiological and pathophysiological conditions. This volume on kallikrein-related peptidases (KLKs) reviews the characterization, regulation, and interactions of these proteases within the protease web.
