Handbook of Clinical Biochemistry by
Publication Date: 2011-05-31
This text provides an understanding of the pathophysiological basis of diseases and gives guidelines about the use of clinical biochemistry laboratories. It aims to bring together the physiology, biochemistry and relevant pathology for the proper use of the laboratory.
The Roots of Modern Biochemistry by
Publication Date: 1988-04-01
"The Roots of Modern Biochemistry is a superb introduction into modern biochemistry, much recommended as initial overview of the subject." Prof. Dr. Hans Fritz, Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich
The ABC Transporters of Human Physiology and Disease by
Publication Date: 2011-06-06
ATP Binding Cassette (ABC) transporters are a family of integral membrane proteins present in all cells of all species of archaea, eubacteria and eukaryota. The vast majority of these proteins control the transport across cellular membranes of molecules ranging from small ions to drugs, lipids and proteins. The human genome encodes 48 ABC transporter genes and mutations in most have been linked to disease. This book — that brings together state-of-the-art knowledge on ABC proteins in one volume — will provide students, professors and medical professionals with a background to the human ABC transporters that are known to be relevant to disease. Each of the 14 chapters is written by a leading researcher in the field. The genetics, structure and function of the proteins, and the future direction of research including the implications for human health are discussed in depth.

This book is a brief history of the centuries-old fascination with the process of alcoholic fermentation, the debates about its nature, and its elucidation during the early twentieth century.
Dna Deamination and the Immune System by
Publication Date: 2010-10-27
This book covers the current understanding of the role of activation-induced cytidine deaminase (AID) in the generation of antibody response to antigenic challenge. Since the discovery of AID, and the genetic demonstration of its role in somatic hypermutation and class-switch recombination of antibody genes, much has been learned about the biochemistry of this enzyme. However, some key questions remain hotly contested, such as: how does this enzyme get to the antibody locus leaving the rest of the genome intact, and why are DNA repair pathways which normally repair deamination events co-opted into actually fixing mutations into the genome? These questions, among others, will be addressed in this monograph from various perspectives. Being leading experts in their respective fields, the contributors of this highly valued title summarize current research in the field of AID and put forth hypotheses in order to provide a platform for future experiments.
