Z731390 Biochemistry of Signal Transduction and Regulation, 4th ed. very useful for students and researchers This all-new edition of a best-selling text has been thoroughly updated to keep pace with the rapid progress in signal transduction research. With skill and clarity, the molecular basis of signal transduction, regulated gene expression, the cell cycle, tumorigenesis and apoptosis is made transparent for everyone with a basic knowledge in biochemistry or molecular biology.

"The clear and didactic presentation makes it a textbook very useful for students and researchers not familiar with all aspects of cell regulation." (Biochemistry) "This book is actually two books: Regulation and Signal Transduction." (Drug Research)
Z731315 Cell-free Protein Synthesis practical advice for beginners and experts alike With its detailed description of membrane protein expression, high-throughput and genomic-scale expression studies, both on the analytical and the preparative scale, this book covers the latest advances in the field. The step-by-step protocols and practical examples given for each method constitute practical advice for beginners and experts alike.
Z731323 Columns for Gas Chromatography: Performance and Selection for separating and analyzing a wide variety of organic compounds and gases Gas Chromatography (GC) is the most widely used method for separating and analyzing a wide variety of organic compounds and gases. There have been many recent advancements in both packed column and capillary column GC. With numerous options and considerations, selecting the right column can be complicated.

This resource includes - Methods of choosing both capillary and packed columns; Selection of dimensions (column length, I.D., film thickness, etc.) and type of column; Guidelines for proper connections of the column to the injector and detector; United States Pharmacopeia and National Formulary chromatographic methods; ASTM, EPA, NIOSH, and OSHA column selection specifications; Information on the advantages of computer assistance in GC and multidimensional GC; Comprehensive information on column oven temperature control.
Z731226 Molecules and Medicine E.J. Corey, John Wiley & Sons, 2007, 272 pp., soft cover This book provides, for the first time ever, a completely integrated look at chemistry, biology, drug discovery, and medicine. This book delves into the discovery, application, and mode of action of more than one hundred of the most significant molecules now used in modern medicine. With focus on the most important and commonly used medicines such as anti-clotting agents, antibiotics, Viagra and anti-malarial and antidepressant drugs, coverage includes the condition it treats, the summary of its industrial development, the year put into practice, the biological target for the medicine, the human proteins related to the disease, the metabolism or action of the condition treated, and interacting side effects and related drugs.
  Z731498 PET Chemistry: The Driving Force in Molecular Imaging The incessant progress in the comprehension of molecular processes of disease formation and progression is accompanied by an increasing importance of biomedical molecular imaging methods. PET, a nuclear medical imaging modality, is ideally suited to produce such kinds of images by use of positron-emitting chemical entities. The purpose of this workshop was to discuss and overview applications and technologies in the area of PET chemistry. The book provides the reader with state-of-the-art information on the different applications of PET isotopes, such as F-18, C-11, Ga-68, Cu-64, Y-86, Br-76, Br-77 and I-124, and their impact on molecular imaging. New technical features such as microwaves, microreactors and modules for the synthesis of new PET tracers are discussed.
Z731358 Vaccine Adjuvants and Delivery Systems M Singh, John Wiley and sons, 2007, 449 pp., hard cover This unique resource brings scientists up to date on recent advances and provides the information they need to select candidate adjuvants. Written by leading experts, this book provides a comprehensive overview of the rapidly evolving field and developing formulation methods and covers cutting-edge technologies and gives the current status of adjuvants in clinical trials and those still in the pre-clinical stage.

It includes detailed information on specific vaccine adjuvants, including MF59, TLR4 agonists, new iscoms, cytokines, polyphosphazenes, and more. The text discusses the mechanisms of adjuvant actions, and covers some novel adjuvants and delivery systems and the safety evaluation of adjuvants.
