Arachidonic Acid in Cell Signaling (Molecular Biology by Daniele Piomelli

By Daniele Piomelli

This publication is set the arachidonic acid cascade, its biochemistry, its pharmacology, and its roles in sign transduction. Arachidonic acid may possibly function an intracellular moment messenger in lots of mobilephone kinds, in addition to precursor for biologically lively molecules comparable to the eicosanoids (a kinfolk of oxygenated metabolites that could act as moment messengers or as neighborhood mediators), and anandamide (an endogenous cannabinoid substance). Dysfunctions within the arachidonic acid cascade underlie a few critical pathological stipulations, making those biochemical pathways the objective for medicinal drugs of medical worth.

Protein Movement Across Membranes, 1st Edition

This ebook addresses the newest advances within the shipping of proteins throughout quite a few organic membranes. In addressing this subject, this quantity comprises a number of new twists now not formerly addressed within the literature. within the previous couple of years, the learn of protein translocation has been revolutionized by way of the supply of structural details on some of the elements and complexes all for the method.
