Epigenetics and Disease

En Li, Susan M. Gasser

editore: Birkhauser Verlag AG

pagine: 280

Epigenetics has emerged recently as an important area of molecular biological studies. Epigenetic modifications lead to potentially heritable but reversible alterations in the expression of genes that determine cell fate. Epigenetic misregulation is thus often linked to degenerative diseases, cancer and neuronal disorders. Recent biomedical interest in this regulatory system stems from the fact that epigenetic, in contrast to genetic, alterations are in principle amenable to pharmacological intervention. A few epigenetically active drugs, for example histone deacetylase inhibitors (HDACi) and DNA methyltransferase (DNMT) inhibitors, have been approved by FDA for treatment of cancers such as CTCL, MDS, and AML. This volume explores the scientific background for clinical applications of epigenetically active drugs. Included are descriptions of epigenetic controls over gene expression, the post-transcriptional silencing of genes by RNA interference (RNAi) and microRNAs, as well as new findings from stem cell research which are relevant to pharmacological applications.

Introduzione alle colture cellulari

G. Luigi Mariottini

editore: Tecniche Nuove

pagine: 133

L.utilizzo di ogni composto sintetizzato deve essere approvato da parte di organi competenti in seguito all'effettuazione di accurati studi di tossicità, ed è quindi necessaria una sperimentazione che valuti gli eventuali effetti dei composti e il rischio per gli organismi conseguente all'esposizione. Tra i metodi biologici disponibili per queste attività, i metodi in vitro e, in particolare, le colture cellulari, sono oggi ampiamente usati e conosciuti. Rivolta a tutti i titolari di laboratori e professionisti del settore delle analisi chimico-biologiche e della ricerca farmaceutica e adottata presso diverse facoltà di Biologia, la seconda edizione del manuale aggiorna e approfondisce la trattazione dei metodi che utilizzano le colture cellulari nei diversi campi della ricerca biomedica. Il testo fornisce a tutti gli operatori del settore una serie di informazioni mirate al corretto utilizzo delle tecniche di base e dei metodi di studio in questo campo di indagine moderno e fondamentale nelle scienze sperimentali, ambientali e nella sanità.

Life Span Extension

Single Cell Organisms to Man

Antonello Lorenzini, Christian Sell
e altri

editore: Humana Press Inc.

pagine: 216

In recent years, remarkable discoveries have been made concerning the underlying mechanisms of aging. In "Life-Span Extension: Single-Cell Organisms to Man", the editors bring together a range of illuminating perspectives from researchers investigating the aging process in a variety of species. This novel work addresses the aging process in species ranging from yeast to man and, among other subjects, features detailed discussions of the naked mole-rat, an exceptionally long-lived rodent; the relationship between dietary factors/food restriction and aging; and an evolutionary view of the human aging process. Single mutations that extend life span have been identified in yeast, worms, flies, and mice, whereas studies in humans have identified potentially important markers for successful aging. At the same time, it has been discovered that the genes and pathways identified in these studies involve a surprisingly small set of conserved functions, most of which have been the focus of aging research for some time. For example, the mTOR pathway, a regulator of translation and protein synthesis, has been identified as a common longevity pathway in yeast and Caenorhabditis elegans. In mammals, this pathway intersects with neuroendocrine pathways and with the insulin/insulin-like growth factor pathways, which have been identified as major modulators of life span and aging in both invertebrates and mice. Novel, emerging technologies and the increasingly wide variety of systems that are now used to study aging and the mechanisms of aging provide enormous opportunities for the identification of common pathways that modulate longevity. It is these common pathways that are the focus of this important volume.

Biology of Stem Cells and the Molecular Basis of the Stem State

Dov Zipori

editore: Humana Press Inc.

pagine: 304

Biology of Stem Cells and the Molecular Basis of the Stem State concentrates upon adult stem cells, particularly on mesenchymal cell populations, which is the author's area of expertise. The text offers the reader a detailed description of the emergence of stem cell research and the dogmas that were created during the first decades of analysis of stem cell properties, particularly those of hemopoietic stem cells. Biology of Stem Cells and the Molecular Basis of the Stem State also introduces the reader to the commonly accepted notions regarding stem cell biology, with an emphasis on an alternative view of stemness, i.e. the stem state. In keeping with the popularity of this topic, Biology of Stem Cells and the Molecular Basis of the Stem State addresses the major controversies and points of dispute, among researchers in the stem cell field. Overall, Biology of Stem Cells and the Molecular Basis of the Stem State presents a well-rounded dialogue about stem cells as it not only concentrates upon the biological elements of stem cell, but also addresses the controversy and hype currently enveloping this popular subject.

Molecular Structure and Function of the Tight Junction

Jorg-Dieter Schulzke, Michael Fromm

editore: New York Academy of Sciences

pagine: 300

Aim of this volume is to clarify the relationship between molecular structure and function of tight junction proteins, as well as their regulation and their role in diseases. Current research may form a basis for future diagnostic and therapeutic approaches to diseases which seem to have not much in common but are characterized by defects of organ barriers, like Crohn's disease, renal hypertension, inner ear deafness, and cancerous diseases. Topics include the functions of distinct tight junction proteins as barrier or channel formers for solutes and water, characteristics of the tight junction in inflammatory bowel diseases, posttranslational modifications of tight junction proteins, the relation between renal tight junction proteins and blood pressure control, and the molecular structure of claudin-claudin interactions NOTE: Annals volumes are available for sale as individual books or as a journal.
