  • Cytochrome P450 2D6

    Structure, Function, Regulation and Polymorphism

    By Shufeng Zhou

    Three families of CYPs in the human cytochrome P450 (CYP) gene superfamily, imaginatively called CYP1, CYP2, and CYP3, account for more than 90% of the oxidative metabolism of clinical drugs. CYP2D6, although only 2-4% total hepatic CYP, metabolizes about 25% of all medications in the human liver.…

  • Biology and Ecology of Aphids

    Edited by Andreas Vilcinskas

    Most people know of aphids as garden pests, infesting the soft green tissues of plants in vast numbers and killing them by sucking out the sap. Indeed, among the 4000 or so known species of aphids about 250 are pests, and in temperate regions several are economically important agricultural pests…

  • An Introduction to Fish Migration

    Edited by Pedro Morais, Francoise Daverat

    Since the publication of The Migrations of Fish by Prof. Alexander Meek in 1916, a number of books have been published on this subject. However, most of these books only cover one type of migratory mechanisms. This book aims to overcome this drawback by presenting a comprehensive coverage of all…

  • Gene-Environment Interaction Analysis

    Methods in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology

    Edited by Sumiko Anno

    This is the first book dealing with the theme of gene–environment (G×E) interaction analysis. G×E interaction analysis is a statistical method for clarifying G×E interactions applicable to a phenotype or a disease that is the result of interactions between genes and the environment. The book…

  • Placenta

    The Tree of Life

    Edited by Ornella Parolini

    The placenta is a source of non-embryonic (i.e. not from the embryo or fetus) stem cells that can be used for research and potentially for a variety of therapies. Stem cells can be harvested following birth, thus avoiding some of the ethical/moral concerns. This book is devoted to the therapeutic…

  • Applying Pharmacogenomics in Therapeutics

    Edited by Xiaodong Feng, Hong-Guang Xie

    Recent advances in high-throughput gene sequencing and other omics biotechnologies have served as a springboard for the field of pharmacogenomics. Pharmacogenomics is now generally accepted as the major determinant of variable drug safety, efficacy, and cost-effectiveness. Therefore, widespread use…

  • Mapping of Nervous System Diseases via MicroRNAs

    Edited by Christian Barbato, Francesca Ruberti

    In recent years, understanding of microRNA (miRNA) biogenesis, the molecular mechanisms by which miRNAs regulate gene expression, and the functional roles of miRNAs has expanded. Mapping of Nervous System Diseases via MicroRNAs provides an up-to-date review on the function of miRNA in neurological…

  • Erythrocytes of the Rhesus and Cynomolgus Monkeys

    By Chester A. Glomski, Alessandra Pica, Jessica F. Greene

    Erythrocytes of the Rhesus and Cynomolgus Monkeys addresses the morphologic, quantitative, and generative aspects of the erythrocytes of the rhesus monkey Macaca mulatta and the cynomolgus monkey Macaca fascicularis (long-tailed macaque, crab-eating monkey). These two species are the most commonly…

  • The Evolution of Economies

    Money-bargaining, economic change and industrial revolution

    By Patrick Spread

    The Evolution of Economies provides a clear account of how economies evolve under a process of support bargaining and money bargaining. They both allow people to determine their interests and requirements by reference to their present circumstances. This gives the bargaining system a natural…
