CIBA Foundation Symposium

Most popular at the top

  • Genetic Analysis of Tumour Suppressionby CIBA Foundation Symposium

    Wiley 2008; US$ 175.00

    Comprises the proceedings of a symposium held at the Ciba Foundation, London, February 1988. Contains the latest research results on the inverse relationship between cell proliferation and differentiation and the nature of the genes involved. Included are the studies of cell fusion experiments, the introduction of single chromosomes into malignant... more...

  • IgE, Mast Cells and the Allergic Responseby CIBA Foundation Symposium

    Wiley 2008; US$ 175.00

    Reviews recent basic research into IgE, mast cells, and the allergic response and the relevance of this work to human pathophysiology, and discusses new methods of treatment. This symposium is unique in the IgE field for its breadth of coverage and interdisciplinary nature, and it shows the benefits from the current rapid expansion of knowledge in... more...

  • Molecular Control of Haemopoiesisby CIBA Foundation Symposium

    Wiley 2008; US$ 175.00

    The many different kinds of blood cells found in the human body are derived from multi-potential stem cells, which are induced to differentiate into one or another cell type by the action of regulatory proteins or growth factors. This volume looks at the way that binding of these proteins to specific receptors causes changes in gene expression in the... more...

  • Myopia and the Control of Eye Growthby CIBA Foundation Symposium

    Wiley 2008; US$ 175.00

    Myopia, the most common disorder of the eye, affects 80% of the population of some countries. Although its basis remains uncertain, recent development of animal models have permitted tests of hypothesis as to myopia's origins. The symposium proceedings cover normal growth of the eye including the roles of peptide factors, metabolism and accomodation,... more...

  • Neurobiology of Incontinenceby CIBA Foundation Symposium

    Wiley 2008; US$ 175.00

    Incontinence is a very common and often devastating problem, but one that goes largely unacknowledged. In order to elucidate the underlying mechanisms of this major clinical condition, this symposium brought together neuroscientists working on the basic biology of the bladder and bowel and clinicians dealing with the various manifestations of urinary... more...

  • Protein Conformationby CIBA Foundation Symposium

    Wiley 2008; US$ 175.00

    How the amino acid sequence of a protein determines its three-dimensional structure is a major problem in biology and chemistry. Leading experts in the fields of NMR spectroscopy, X-ray crystallography, protein engineering and molecular modeling offer provocative insights into current views on the protein folding problem and various aspects for future... more...

  • Regeneration of Vertebrate Sensory Receptor Cellsby CIBA Foundation Symposium

    Wiley 2008; US$ 175.00

    An international group of leading investigators discuss recent progress of sensory structures in lower and higher vertebrates. Experts in two relevant fields--the cell cycle and mitogenic growth factors--present insightful contributions in the search for precursors and/or stem cells in each sense organ plus the signals which regulate those precursors'... more...

  • Silicon Biochemistryby CIBA Foundation Symposium

    Wiley 2008; US$ 188.00

    Silicon is the second most abundant element in the Earth's crust, and is found in water, plants and organisms. The contributors decribe how silica gets into and out of organisms and discuss how essential or harmful silicon or silicon-based compounds are in higher animals. more...

  • Steroids and Neuronal Activityby CIBA Foundation Symposium

    Wiley 2008; US$ 175.00

    Classical studies of steroid hormones are concerned with their regulation of protein synthesis via the modulation of genomic transcription. But many of the actions of these hormones occur too rapidly to be explained in this manner, particularly their effects on the central nervous system. This text deals with recent discoveries showing that steroids... more...
