"Is environmental debate today, including global warming, bio-technology, and other issues, based on science or politics? Are popular accounts of such issues rooted in science or phantom risks? Are government policies focusing on the trivial while ignoring the real, and in the process wasting limited resources, crippling human innovation to address true dangers, and inviting tyranny?"--Program description

Micronutrients : metabolic tuning--prevention--therapy by Uwe Gröber( )

3 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Vitamins, minerals, trace elements, amino acids or essential fatty acids - micronutrients have the potential to maintain metabolic function and to prevent and treat diet-related diseases. However, nutritional requirements and optimal dosage vary considerably between individuals." "This pocket reference provides accurate information to ensure the safe and effective use of micronutrients. Clearly structured, it covers 54 micronutrients, Including requirements, indication groups, deficiency signs and symptoms, dosages, specific interactions, and safety aspects. In addition, the preventive and therapeutic use of micronutrients is described for all age groups as well as for many common disorders. It is a comprehensive guide that helps to tap the power of micronutrients in everyday clinical practice - for the benefit of patients."--BOOK JACKET

Oxygen radicals in biological systems( Book )

2 editions published between 1991 and 1994 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since biological tissues are unstable in an oxygen atmosphere, a great deal of effort is expended by organisms to metabolically limit or repair oxidative tissue damage. This volume of Methods in Enzymology and its companion Volume 234 present methods developed to investigate the roles of oxygen radicals and antioxidants in disease. Key Features * Generation, detection, and characterization of oxygen radicals, chemistry, biochemistry, and intermediate states of reductio* Isolation, characterization, and assay of enzymes or substrates involved in formation or removal of oxygen radical * Methods for assessing molecular, cell, and tissue damage; assays and repair of oxidative damage
Oxygen radicals in biological systems by Lester Packer( Book )

2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The critically acclaimed laboratory standard, Methods in Enzymology, is one of the most highly respected publications in the field of biochemistry. Since 1955, each volume has been eagerly awaited, frequently consulted, and praised by researchers and reviewers alike. The series contains much material still relevant today - truly an essential publication for researchers in all fields of life sciences

Written and produced by Laurie Garrett and Adi Gevins
Nitric oxide by Lester Packer( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nitric oxide, recently named"Molecule of the Year"by the journal Science, impinges on a wide range of fields in biological research, particularly in the areas of biomedicine and cell and organismal biology, as well as in fundamental chemistry. This volume and its companion Volume 268 highlight methods used to research the physiology and toxicity of nitric oxide in cellular and organismal systems. It will be a valuable resource for the experienced researcher as well as for those newly entering the field. Key Features * Effects of nitric oxide in cells and tissues * Biochemical reactivity * Tissue-specific effects * Endothelial nitric oxide synthase expressions in heterologous systems * Cellular signaling * Pathological and clinical aspects of NO * Fingerprints of pathological action * Interaction with membranes, proteins, and nucleic acids * Peroxynitrite * Tissue and cellular cytotoxicity * Clinical aspects
Oxygen radicals in biological systems( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since biological tissues are unstable in an oxygen atmosphere, a great deal of effort is expended by organisms to metabolically limit or repair oxidative tissue damage. This volume of Methods in Enzymology and its companion Volume 233 present methods developed to investigate the roles of oxygen radicals and antioxidants in disease. It includes techniques and assays of the activity of biothiols in soluble systems, their interaction with lipids and proteins, and the various new thiol enzymes, such as thioltransferases, being elucidated. Antioxidant reactions and gene regulation are also included
