GTPases in biology by Burton F Dickey( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recent advances in molecular biology have shown GTPases and phosphoproteins to be the paramount molecular switches utilized intracellularly in biological systems. The origins of the GTPase switch appear to be almost as ancient as life itself, and through evolution nature has adapted this switch to a variety of purposes. In this two-volume work a broad survey of the major classes of GTPases is presented. The role of GTPases in ensuring accuracy during protein translation, a new look at the trimeric G-protein cycle, the molecular function of ARF in vesicle coating, the emerging role of the dynamin family in vesicle transfer, GTPases which activate GTPases during nascent protein translocation, and the many roles of ras-related proteins in growth, cytoskeletal polymerization, and vesicle transfer, are all described in 80 chapters by the leading authorities in their fields. Both detailed knowledge of specific systems or proteins and general principles of structure and function are offered. Much of this information has never been published before. At the rate the extended family of GTPases is growing it becomes increasingly unlikely that we will again get it to sit for a group portrait such as this. Therefore, the volume has the chance to become the reference work for GTPases
Opioids II by Albert Herz( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This two-volume book provides the first comprehensive survey of opioid research, an area in which a tremendous amount of literature has accumulated since the identification of opioid receptors and their endogenous ligands. In more than 60 chapters experts represent state-of-the-art reviews of this fascinating field. The topics range from molecular biology to clinical application. Part II reviews a broad spectrum of physiological and behavioral functions and pharmacological actions of opioids. In addition, the neuroendocrinology of opioids, and opioid tolerance and dependence are discussed in a series of chapters. The final section deals with pathophysiological aspects and the clinical use of opioids

Chemical carcinogenesis and mutagenesis by C. S Cooper( Book )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This handbook - the first of two complementary volumes - presents carcinogenesis and mutagenesis. To this end the subject matter covers theories behind the process of carcinogenesis, the ways in which such compounds are metabolized and interact with DNA and the detection and consequences of adduct formation. Relationships between mutagenesis and carcinogenesis are explored together with methods by which chemicals may be tested for mutagenic or carcinogenic properties and how these effects may be modified. Oncogenes and their activation are considered together with the mechanisms by which their role in carcinogenesis is effected. The volume is of broad interest to toxicologists and pharmacologists and of special appeal to graduate and post-graduate research workers studying carcinogenesis and mutagenesis. It is the first attempt to cover the entire range of carcinogenesis, from epidemiology to the effects of oncogenes on cellular differentiation, and contains excellent contributions from leading scientists. The handbook thus provides specialists in defined areas of cancer research with up-to-date overviews of adjacent areas
