  • Seleniumby Dolph L. Hatfield; Marla J. Berry; Vadim N. Gladyshev

    Springer 2011; US$ 179.00

    Many health benefits have been attributed to selenium that include preventing various forms of cancer (e.g., colon cancer, prostate cancer, lung cancer and liver cancer), heart disease and other cardiovascular and muscle disorders, inhibiting viral expression, delaying the progression of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) in human immunodeficiency... more...

  • Activation and Detoxification Enzymesby Chang-Hwei Chen

    Springer 2011; US$ 189.00

    Humans are exposed to foreign compounds such as drugs, household products and environmental chemicals by swallowing or breathing. Also, food is considered a foreign compound. Such foreign compounds can be non-essential and non-functional to life, and commonly are referred to as xenobiotics. Some xenobiotics are not toxic; however, many of them are... more...

  • Water Soluble Vitaminsby Olaf Stanger

    Springer 2011; US$ 279.00

    The discovery of vitamins in the early 1900s, their later chemical characterization and the clarification of pivotal metabolic functions are sequential aspects of a brilliant chapter in the history of modern nutritional sciences and medicine. The name, derived from "vital-amines", indicates their elementary metabolic key functions in human... more...

  • Marine Bioactive Compoundsby Maria Hayes

    Springer 2011; US$ 209.00

    The aim and scope of this book is to highlight the sources, isolation, characterization and applications of bioactive compounds from the marine environment and to discuss how marine bioactive compounds represent a major market application in food and other industries. It discusses sustainable marine resources of macroalgal origin and gives examples... more...

  • Advances in Rapid Sex-Steroid Actionby Gabriella Castoria; Antimo Migliaccio

    Springer 2011; US$ 189.00

    Breast and prostate cancers are both hormone-dependent, at least in some stages of their progression. Hormonal manipulation represents an important therapeutic approach. Although most of breast and prostate cancers initially respond to hormone therapy, most tumors reinitiate to growth. Finally, hormone-resistant and metastatic breast and prostate cancers... more...

  • Signaling at the Cell Surface in the Circulatory and Ventilatory Systemsby Marc Thiriet

    Springer 2011; US$ 219.00

    The volumes in this authoritative series present a multidisciplinary approach to modeling and simulation of flows in the cardiovascular and ventilatory systems, especially multiscale modeling and coupled simulations. The cardiovascular and respiratory systems are tightly coupled, as their primary function is to supply oxygen to and remove carbon dioxide... more...

  • Applications of Electrochemistry and Nanotechnology in Biology and Medicine IIby Noam Eliaz

    Springer 2011; US$ 149.00

    The study of electrochemical nanotechnology has emerged as researchers apply electrochemistry to nanoscience and nanotechnology. These two related volumes in the Modern Aspects of Electrochemistry Series review recent developments and breakthroughs in the specific application of electrochemistry and nanotechnology to biology and medicine. Internationally... more...

  • Iron Physiology and Pathophysiology in Humansby Gregory J. Anderson; Gordon D. McLaren

    Springer 2012; US$ 329.00

    Iron Physiology and Pathophysiology in Humans provides health professionals in many areas of research and practice with the most up-to-date and well-referenced volume on the importance of iron as a nutrient and its role in health and disease. This important new volume is the benchmark in the complex area of interrelationships between the essentiality... more...

  • Phosphoinositides IIby Tamas Balla; Matthias Wymann; John D. York

    Springer 2012; US$ 279.00

    Phosphoinositides play a major role in cellular signaling and membrane organization. During the last three decades we have learned that enzymes turning over phosphoinositides control vital physiological processes and are involved in the initiation and progression of cancer, inflammation, neurodegenerative, cardiovascular, metabolic disease and more.... more...

  • Multistate GTPase Control Co-translational Protein Targetingby Xin Zhang

    Springer 2011; US$ 129.00

    Proteins act as macromolecular machinery that mediate many diverse biological processes - the molecular mechanisms of this machinery has fascinated biologists for decades. Analysis of the kinetic and thermodynamic features of these mechanisms could reveal unprecedented aspects of how the machinery function and will eventually lead to a novel understanding... more...
