  • Structure of Biological Membranesby Sixten Abrahamsson

    Springer US 2013; US$ 90.03

    Since 1965 the Nobel Foundation sponsors, through grants from the Bank of Sweden Tercentenary Fund, Sym­ posia on subjects which are considered to be of central scientific importance and for which new results of a special interest have been reached. The aim of these Symposia is to bring together, by personal invitation, a limited number of leading... more...

  • Metabolic Interconversion of Enzymes 1975by S. Shaltiel

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 128.61

    Three parameters participating in the specific control of proteolytic processes in intact yeast cells are discussed: (1) different substrate specificity of the yeast proteinases A and B, and carboxypeptidase Y when tested with yeast enzymes as substrate, (2) three types of macro­ molecular inhibitors from yeast specifically inhibiting the three pro­... more...

  • Surface Membrane Receptorsby Ralph Bradshaw

    Springer US 2012; US$ 90.03

    The NATO Advanced Study Institute entitled "Surface Membrane Receptors: Interface Between Cells and Environment" was held in Bellagio, Italy September 13-21, 1975. This meeting was an attempt to bring together in an international and interdisci­ plinary forum scientists who are studying recognitive phenomona which take place at the surface membrane... more...

  • Prostaglandins: Chemical and Biochemical Aspectsby S. M. M. Karim

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 101.72

    This is the second in a series of three books on advances in prostaglandin research. In recent years there has been an unparalleled interest in these compounds and as a result a vast amount of research data has accumulated since the publication of my earlier book in 1972. At that time it was possible to present a fairly comprehensive review of the... more...

  • The Bile Acids: Chemistry, Physiology, and Metabolismby P. Nair

    Springer US 2012; US$ 105.23

    The first two volumes of this series addressed themselves to the chemistry, physiology, and metabolism of the bile acids. The present volume is devoted to the pathophysiology of bile acids. As the role of bile acids in health and disease is being increasingly recognized, we have chosen for discussion a wide range of topics of current importance. The... more...

  • Chemie für Medizinerby H. P. Latscha; H. A. Klein

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 36.34


  • Methods in Membrane Biologyby Edward D. Korn

    Springer US 2012; US$ 90.03

    Volume 3 continues the approach carried out in the first two volumes of this se ries of publishing articles on membrane methodology which include, in addition to procedural details, incisive discussions of the ap­ plications of the methods and of their limitations. Wh at is the theoretical basis of the method, how and to what problems can it be applied,... more...

  • Membrane Biogenesisby Alexander Tzagoloff

    Springer US 2012; US$ 116.92

    There are currently a growing number of laboratories actively studying the mechanism by which various biological membranes are assembled. This area of research is still relatively new to biochemists and molecular biologists, but in view of the rapid progress being made, a review of the field at this time is justified. The present volume focuses on... more...

  • Aharon Katzir Memorial Volumeby Henryk Eisenberg; Ephraim Katchalski-Katzir; Lionel A. Manson

    Springer US 2012; US$ 105.23

    It was a warm, sunny morning in Rehovot. The sky was c1ear as it always is in June. As I walked to the Institute that morning, too many cars were passing by, too many people were hurrying onto the Institute's grounds. No one was smiling, acquaintances were recognized by a slight nod of the head. When I turned the corner, a few people already had gathered... more...

  • Nitrogen Fixation in Bacteria and Higher Plantsby R.C. Burns; R.W.F. Hardy

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 128.61

    Our knowledge of the biochemistry and biophysics of dinitrogen fixa­ tion has developed rapidly in the 15 years since the first N2-fixing enzyme system was successfully extracted from a bacterium. This peri­ od has produced a literature that now describes the N2 fixation reac­ tion and the nitrogenase enzyme itself in sophisticated terms, though a... more...
