  • Relaxin and Related Peptidesby Irun R. Cohen; Abel Lajtha

    Springer 2008; US$ 249.00

    Discusses the paradigms, the contradictions, and the findings and directions in the field of relaxin research. This book highlights an array of topics, ranging from evolution of relaxin family peptides and receptors to their cell signaling, from the role of relaxin in reproduction to the functions in cancer progression and in the nervous system. more...

  • Transgenic Microalgae as Green Cell Factoriesby Irun R. Cohen; Abel Lajtha

    Springer 2008; US$ 209.00

    Microalgae have been largely cultured and commercialized as food and feed additives, and their potential as source of high-added value compounds is well known. But, in contrast to the large number of genetically modified bacteria, yeast and even higher plants, only a few species of microalgae have been genetically transformed with efficiency. Initial... more...

  • Axon Growth and Guidanceby Irun R. Cohen; Abel Lajtha

    Springer 2008; US$ 249.00

    This book proposes an updated view of the current knowledge of the molecular and cellular mechanisms ensuring axon growth and guidance. The introductory chapter will remind the readers of all the features of a growth cone and the mechanisms controlling its growth. From there, one enters a fabulous journey with a growth cone, a Tom Thumb story filled... more...

  • Bacterial Signal Transductionby Irun R. Cohen; Abel Lajtha

    Springer 2008; US$ 289.00

    Offers an incentive for graduate students, academic scientists, and researchers in the pharmaceutical industry to further elucidate the TCS networks and apply them in the search for novel drugs. more...

  • Molecular Mechanisms of Xeroderma Pigmentosumby Irun R. Cohen; Abel Lajtha

    Springer 2008; US$ 269.00

    To understand the molecular mechanisms of XP, XP mouse models have been used, and mice deficient in XPA, XPC, XPD, XPG, XPF, and XPA/CSB have been produced and analysed. This title includes a chapter that analyzes the world distribution of XP and shows that Japan has the highest incidence of XP and of varying complementation groups. more...

  • Somitogenesisby Irun R. Cohen; Abel Lajtha

    Springer 2008; US$ 269.00

    We visualise developmental biology as the study of progressive changes that occur within cells, tissues and organisms themselves during their life span. This title includes nine chapters that cover topics that endeavour to capture the spirit of this dynamic discipline. It is suitable for different kinds of scientists, including basic researchers. more...

  • Multichain Immune Recognition Receptor Signalingby Irun R. Cohen; Abel Lajtha

    Springer 2008; US$ 269.00

    Shows that the structural similarity of the Multichain Immune Recognition Receptors (MIRRs) determines the general principles underlying MIRR-mediated transmembrane signaling mechanisms. This book provides the basis for existing and future therapeutic strategies targeting MIRRs. more...

  • Cellular Oscillatory Mechanismsby Irun R. Cohen; Abel Lajtha

    Springer 2008; US$ 269.00

    Offers an introduction to a range of both well known and less familiar cellular oscillations and illustrates the striking richness of cellular dynamics. This book focuses on elucidating the basic mechanisms that underlie these oscillations. more...
