  • Recombination and Meiosisby Richard Egel; Dirk-Henner Lankenau

    Springer 2008; US$ 399.00

    Once per life cycle, mitotic nuclear divisions are replaced by meiosis I and II - reducing chromosome number from the diploid level to a haploid genome and recombining chromosome arms by crossing-over. In animals, all this happens during formation of eggs and sperm - in yeasts before spore formation. The mechanisms of reciprocal exchange at crossover/chiasma... more...

  • Epigenetic Alterations in Oncogenesisby Adam R. Karpf

    Springer 2012; US$ 209.00

    The purpose of this book is to provide an up to date review of the nature and consequences of epigenetic changes in cancer. Epigenetics literally means "above" genetics, and consists of heritable gene expression or other phenotypic states not accounted for by DNA base sequence. Epigenetic changes are now known to make a large contribution... more...

  • Androgen-Responsive Genes in Prostate Cancerby Zhou Wang

    Springer 2013; US$ 209.00

    Androgens and androgen receptors (AR) play critical roles in the development and progression of prostate cancer, the most frequently diagnosed cancer and second leading cause of cancer death in US males.  AR is an androgen-dependent DNA-binding transcription factor that regulates the expression of androgen-responsive genes.  Identification... more...
