Plant Systems Biology (Experientia Supplementum)

This quantity goals to supply a well timed view of the state of the art in structures biology. The editors take the chance to outline platforms biology as they and the contributing authors see it, and this can lay the foundation for destiny stories. the amount is well-suited to either scholars and researchers attracted to the equipment of platforms biology.

On the Science of Uncertainty: The Biographical Method in Social Research

Franco Ferrarotti hopes to guide sociologists clear of overly reductionistic, technical dimension in their subjects_an technique that has more and more been problematized by way of the common sciences_toward a rediscovery of (auto)biographical fabrics and the price of the person.

Acute Myelogenous Leukemia: Genetics, Biology and Therapy

Acute myelogenous leukemia (AML), is the commonest kind of leukemia in adults. AML is a perilous type of malignancy, the analysis for which has no longer more suitable within the final twenty years. extra importantly, it's a malignancy that's noticeable in older adults, hence the variety of instances is probably going to upward thrust because the inhabitants a while.

Behavioral Neurobiology of Bipolar Disorder and its Treatment (Current Topics in Behavioral Neurosciences, Volume 5)

This booklet deals the main updated information regarding examine surrounding the neurobiology of bipolar illness in addition to at the moment to be had and novel healing concepts. the amount has assembled a broadly revered team of preclinical and scientific researchers who carry their services to endure upon this sickness via reviewing state of the art study and medical proof concerning the pathophysiology and remedy of bipolar sickness.

Consequently, a “divide and conquer” approach is often used, in which protein are expressed as individual domains for structural analysis. A protein domain is typically defined as an independent folding unit within an overall protein structure. Thus, proteins can be broken down into their component parts. Individual domains of interest, such as regions that contain catalytic sites of enzymes or protein interaction domains, are crystallized and the structure of these domains independently solved.

Recombinant DNA is usually incorporated into vectors that can be introduced into bacteria, so that the bacteria now contains the gene(s) of interest, genes that they would not normally express. The advent of recombinant DNA technology is one of the most significant developments of century biomedical science. The ability to clone genes led to the establishment of the Biotechnology Industry, which uses cloned genes for enzyme and hormone replacement therapies. For example, before the advent of the biotechnology industry, insulin was purified from natural sources, limiting its availability.

He was to receive his second in 1980 for developing what became the most widely used method for sequencing DNA. The ability to indirectly deduce the sequence of a protein has come a long ways since the 1950s and 1960s, and these original methods are only rarely used today. The most common ways to sequence proteins now is to clone its corresponding cDNA or genomic sequence and deduce the amino acid sequence from the nucleotide sequence. Using this method, the genomes of entire species, including man, have been obtained in a relatively short period of time (see Chapter 2).
