Description

Foods from natural products are a major contributor to contemporary dietary needs. The knowledge of interactions of specific natural products on genes is accumulating due to recent scientific advancements. Natural Products Interactions on Genomes focuses on recent developments in understanding human genome interactions with various natural products.

The book first examines selected major natural products and their interactions with selected genes for each chromosome in mammals, then moves on to focused discussions on interactions of natural products with genes that are involved in specific diseases. It includes studies on breast cancer and prostate cancer. The focus then shifts to the effects of natural products on microbial growth and a final chapter that discusses future challenges and prospects in the field.

This book also presents a unique real-time approach by providing hyperlinks to websites with updated literature on natural products and interactions with genes involved in metabolic pathways.

With a broad range of relevance among disciplines including biology, biomedical science, pharmacy, medicinal chemistry, and naturopathic and herbal medicine, Natural Products Interactions on Genomes provides a valuable reference. It gives you an understanding of the methods of study of natural products and their effects on genomes while pointing toward the future of natural products and the areas they impact in health and science.
