    Wiley 2008; US$ 175.00

    Presented here are the most up-to-date research findings of leading international scientists in the field of aging. The collected data explores the biological, medical, and chemical implications and the latest thinking on the role of proto-oncogenes and their relationship to cell development and deterioration in amphibians, the role of the eukaryotic... more...

  • Proton Passage Across Cell Membranesby CIBA Foundation Symposium

    Wiley 2008; US$ 175.00

    Regulation of intracellular pH is vital to all living cells. This symposium covers the control of pH in muscle and nerve cells and the different mechanisms of acid transport across epithelial and other cell membranes. Papers describe the development and application of microelectrodes and various techniques in molecular biology to the study of the mechanisms... more...

  • Cellular Basis of Morphogenesisby CIBA Foundation Symposium

    Wiley 2008; US$ 175.00

    Contributors to this symposium focus on the interface between genes and cells, covering genetic analysis, cloning studies, and the investigation of cell lineages and cellular interactions. They note how the body axes are already determined in the eggs of invertebrates and amphibia, then consider the mechanisms as the egg cleaves, in annelids, arthropods,... more...

  • Chronic Fatigue Syndromeby CIBA Foundation Symposium
