  • Viral Molecular Machinesby Michael G. Rossmann; Venigalla B. Rao

    Springer 2012; US$ 279.00

    This book will contain a series of solicited chapters that concern with the molecular machines required by viruses to perform various essential functions of virus life cycle. The first three chapters (Introduction, Molecular Machines and Virus Architecture) introduce the reader to the best known molecular machines and to the structure of viruses. The... more...

  • Epigenetic Regulation of Lymphocyte Developmentby Cornelis Murre

    Springer 2012; US$ 189.00

    The studies described in this volume serve as a starting point to familiarize oneself with the multifarious differences in epigenetic designs that orchestrate the progression of developing blood cells. They also may serve as a general paradigm for the mechanisms that underpin the control of eukaryotic gene expression. more...

  • Direct-Fed Microbials and Prebiotics for Animalsby Todd R. Callaway; Steven C. Ricke

    Springer 2011; US$ 189.00

    The practice of supplementing direct fed microbial and prebiotic additives to domestic animals during growth is becoming more widespread in food animal production. Beneficial effects particularly in cattle, pigs and poultry, including improved general health, foodborne pathogen reduction, more efficient food utilization, faster growth rate and increased... more...

  • Ricin and Shiga Toxinsby Nicholas Mantis

    Springer 2012; US$ 189.00

    In May of 2011, Western Europe experienced a severe outbreak of Shiga toxin (Stx)-producing E. coli (STEC) that culminated in more than 3200 cases and 39 deaths. While Stx is not the only virulence factor associated with STEC, it is certainly the primary determinant associated with the onset of hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS). At the present time,... more...

  • Reinigung und Dekontamination von Oberflächen nach Insektizidanwendungen: Vergleichende biologische und chemische Untersuchungen zum Dekontaminationserfolgby Thomas Leiblein

    Diplomica Verlag 2012; US$ 40.60

    Hauptbeschreibung Der Einsatz von Bioziden - unter diese Mittel fallen Insektizide - ist erforderlich, um hygienischen, aber auch volkswirtschaftlichen Schäden vorzubeugen. Biozide finden in vielen Bereichen des alltäglichen Lebens ihre Anwendung, angefangen beim Pflanzenschutz zur Bekämpfung von schädlingsbedingten Ernteeinbußen (Pflanzenschutzmittel)... more...

  • Anoxiaby Alexander V. Altenbach; Joan M. Bernhard; Joseph Seckbach

    Springer 2011; US$ 209.00

    Anoxia defines the lack of free molecular oxygen in an environment. In the presence of organic matter, anaerobic prokaryotes produce compounds such as free radicals, hydrogen sulfide, or methane that are typically toxic to aerobes. The concomitance of suppressed respiration and presence of toxic substances suggests these habitats are inhospitable to... more...

  • Immunosenescenceby Andreas Thiel

    Springer 2012; US$ 189.00

    As individuals age, their ability to respond to and clear pathogens and to control unwanted immune reactions declines, leading to a greater incidence of certain infectious diseases, autoimmunity and general immune dysfunctions. Most remarkably, the efficacy of vaccines is frequently decreased in elderly persons. Therefore, age-associated dysfunctions... more...

  • Mechanical Stretch and Cytokinesby Andre Kamkin; Irina Kiseleva

    Springer 2011; US$ 189.00

    This book presents the latest findings in the field of investigation of molecular mechanisms of mechanical stretch and the role of cytokines in response of different tissues to it. On the one hand this volume demonstrates how mechanical stretch enhances cytokines production. It describes how cytokines influence tissues and cells on a background of... more...
