  • Heteroaromatic Lipoxin A4 Analoguesby Colm Duffy

    Springer 2012; US$ 129.00

    In this thesis Colm Duffy reviews the chemistry and biology of stable lipoxin analogues. Colm has prepared for the first time ever a pyridine-containing LXA4 analogue in enantiomerically pure form. Biological evaluation determined that both epimers at the benzylic position suppress key cytokines known to be involved in inflammatory disease, with the... more...

  • Computational Organometallic Chemistryby Olaf Wiest; Yundong Wu

    Springer 2012; US$ 189.00

    Computational methods have become an indispensible tool for elucidating the mechanism of organometallic reactions. This snapshot of state-of-the-art computational studies provides an overview of the vast field of computational organometallic chemistry. Authors from Asia, Europe and the US have been selected to contribute a chapter on their specialist... more...

  • Total Synthesis of Plakortide E and Biomimetic Synthesis of Plakortone Bby Xiao-Yu Sun

    Springer 2012; US$ 129.00

    In his thesis, Xiaoyu Sun conducts the first total synthesis of all possible stereoisomers of plakortide E and also confirms the absolute configuration of natural plakortide E. Xiaoyu Sun subsequently converts Plakortide E methyl ester to plakortone B in a biomimetic conversion. Construction and functionalization of cyclic peroxides are notoriously... more...

  • Field-Flow Fractionation in Biopolymer Analysisby S. Kim R. Williams; Karin D. Caldwell

    Springer 2012; US$ 189.00

    This is a timely collection of important biomedical applications for a set of separation/characterization techniques that are rapidly gaining popularity due to their wide dynamic range, high resolution, and ability to function in most commonly used solvent systems. Importantly, the field-flow fractionation (FFF) technique has recently emerged as a... more...

  • DNA Topoisomerases and Cancerby Yves Pommier

    Springer 2011; US$ 249.00

    DNA topoisomerases represent an essential family of DNA processing enzymes and a large number of topoisomerase inhibitors are used clinically for the treatment of various human cancers. Novels drugs are in clinical development both against type I and type II topoisomerases. The book will include basic biochemical and structural reviews for the cancer-relevant... more...

  • RNA Infrastructure and Networksby Lesley J. Collins

    Springer 2011; US$ 219.00

    RNAs form complexes with proteins and other RNAs. The RNA-infrastructure represents the spatiotemporal interaction of these proteins and RNAs in a cell-wide network. "RNA Infrastructure and Networks" brings together these ideas to illustrate the scope of RNA-based biology, and how connecting RNA mechanisms is a powerful tool to investigate... more...

  • 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...
