  • Cancer and Noncoding RNAsby Jayprokas Chakrabarti; Sanga Mitra; Trygve Tollefsbol

    Elsevier Science 2017; US$ 200.00

    Cancer and Noncoding RNAs offers an in-depth exploration of noncoding RNAs and their role in epigenetic regulation of complex human disease, most notably cancer. In addition to examining microRNAs, this volume provides a unique evaluation of more recently profiled noncoding RNAs now implicated in carcinogenesis, including lncRNAs, piRNAs, circRNAs,... more...

  • Metabolic Engineering for Bioactive Compoundsby Vipin Chandra Kalia; Adesh Kumar Saini

    Springer Singapore 2017; US$ 177.17

    This book comprehensively discusses the latest research in the area of metabolic engineering. Metabolic engineering solutions for bioactive compounds are now being derived by means of heterologous gene expression, in a wide range of organisms. The book provides an overview of the model systems being employed for metabolic manipulation to yield bioactive... more...

  • Sigma Proteins: Evolution of the Concept of Sigma Receptorsby Felix J. Kim; Gavril W. Pasternak

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 317.74

    Two sigma receptor subtypes have been proposed, sigma1 and 2. Much of our understanding of this system is based on biochemical and pharmacological characterization of the cloned sigma1 receptor subtype (Sigma1). It has become clear that sigma receptors are not canonical receptors. Sigma1 is highly conserved among mammalian species, however, it does... more...

  • CFTR and Cystic Fibrosisby Carlos M. Farinha

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 50.78

    This Brief is devoted to the CFTR protein and cystic fibrosis, and it provides an updated perspective of the genetic, functional and cellular processes involved in this conformational disorder. Starting with a historical perspective on cystic fibrosis and its clinical features, the author departs into an in-depth description of the biology of the... more...

  • Endocrine Biomarkersby Hossein Sadrzadeh; Gregory Kline

    Elsevier Science 2017; US$ 99.95

    Endocrine Biomarkers: Clinical Aspects and Laboratory Determination covers all the pre-analytical variables that can affect test results, both in the clinic and laboratory. Biomarkers of endocrine and bone diseases are discussed from both clinical and laboratory perspectives, and the authors elaborate on the teamwork-based app+roach between the... more...

  • The Biophysics of Cell Membranesby Richard M. Epand; Jean-Marie Ruysschaert

    Springer Singapore 2017; US$ 141.73

    This volume focuses on the modulation of biological membranes by specific biophysical properties. The readers are introduced to emerging biophysical approaches that mimick specific states (like membrane lipid asymmetry, membrane curvature, lipid flip-flop, lipid phase separation) that are relevant to the functioning of biological membranes. The first... more...

  • Rett Syndromeby Walter Kaufmann; Alan Percy; Angus Clarke

    Mac Keith Press 2017; US$ 90.00

    This book’s unique coverage of Rett syndrome from initial examination to in-depth study, is ideal for both clinicians and specialists. more...

  • Biomarkers for Endometriosisby Thomas D'Hooghe

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 141.73

    This book presents an overview of the diagnostic performance of non- or semi-invasive tests for endometriosis in peripheral blood, endometrium, saliva, peritoneal fluid and urine. The value of existing and emerging systems biology technologies for biomarker development is addressed in several chapters on genetics, microarrays, proteomics and metabolomics.... more...

  • Advancing Development of Synthetic Gene Regulatorsby Anandhakumar Chandran

    Springer Singapore 2017; US$ 102.75

    This book focuses on an “outside the box” notion by utilizing the powerful applications of next-generation sequencing (NGS) technologies in the interface of chemistry and biology. In personalized medicine, developing small molecules targeting a specific genomic sequence is an attractive goal. N-methylpyrrole (P)–N-methylimidazole (I) polyamides (PIPs)... more...

  • Communicating Geneticsby Han Yu

    Palgrave Macmillan UK 2017; US$ 94.48

    This book examines the visual representations used in the popular communication of genetics. Drawing upon public science communication theories, information design theories, and social semiotics, the book offers both in-depth analyses and high-level synthesis of how genetics is visualized for the U.S. public from the early 20th century to the present.... more...
