Liposomes: A Practical Approach (Practical Approach Series)

Liposomes: A Practical Approach (Practical Approach Series) Lowest new price: $121.35
Lowest used price: $22.85
List price: $135.00

Since the first edition of "Liposomes - A Practical Approach" was published in 1990, Liposome technology has become a highly successful and rapidly developing area of preclinical and clinical research. During the 90's, a number of liposome-based drugs reached the market in the U.S. and Europe and several new aspects of liposome research have been discovered. As a consequence there has been an explosion of new procedures and techniques in the field. Reflecting both the significant changes in the field and the new discoveries, this new edition of Liposomes contains a combination of chapters from the 1st edition which have been significantly updated, and several new chapters.

Each chapter is an outstanding contribution from leading experts in the field, and the book as a whole encompasses all key areas of liposome technology. The first half of the book addresses a number of essential experimental protocols such as the preparation, characterization, and storage of liposomes. Also included are methods for drug encapsulation into liposomes, modification of the liposomal surface to control drug behaviour in biological environments, long-circulating liposomes and the use of cationic liposomes as transfection vectors. The second half of the book discusses specific areas of liposome research and application, such as pH-sensitive liposomes, liposomes for diagnostic imaging, liposomal DNA vaccines, isothermic titration calorimetry of liposomes and vesicular phospholipids gels.

This new edition of Liposomes is an essential tool for all experienced liposomologists and the perfect introduction for researchers new to the field.


Protein and Peptide Analysis by Mass Spectrometry (Methods in Molecular Biology)

Protein and Peptide Analysis by Mass Spectrometry (Methods in Molecular Biology) Lowest new price: $37.20
Lowest used price: $5.79
List price: $219.99
Brand: Brand: Humana Press

The purpose of the preface is to explain the book's objectives and how to use it; give warnings, disclaimers, and the like.* The main objective of Protein and Peptide Analysis by Mass Spec­ trometry is quite straightforward―to present authoritative, up-to-date, and practical accounts of the use of mass spectrometry in the analysis of pep­ tides and proteins. How to use it? Every reader will have their own particular interests and will surely be drawn toward the chapters that cover these interests. Within the remaining chapters, however, techniques are described with analytical possibilities that such a reader can then only guess at. So, read the book fully. Again, as is customary in the Methods in Molecular Biology series, the chapter format (Introduction, Materials, Methods, and Notes) allows the authors to introduce the techniques, to explain their relevance and applicability, and, above all, to provide detail―detail that represents each author's accumulated experience and enables the reader to use and benefit from these methods. So, read the book fully, and read it diligently. Warnings and disclaimers: Mass spectrometry today offers the pro­ tein chemist ready access to a wealth of information that is otherwise avail­ able only with great difficulty, or perhaps not at all. With this goal in sight, any warnings and disclaimers will almost surely be ignored. So, a warning anyway; the use of mass spectrometry might be habit forming.

Oncogenes, Aneuploidy, and AIDS: A Scientific Life & Times of Peter H. Duesberg

Oncogenes, Aneuploidy, and AIDS: A Scientific Life & Times of Peter H. Duesberg Lowest new price: $12.95
Lowest used price: $1.95
List price: $19.95
Author: Harvey Bialy

According to author Harvey Bialy, the work of molecular biologist Peter Duesberg has been grossly distorted by the media and scientific establishments. Until recently, the scientific community—and most notably, those from the National Institute for Health—have been unwilling to look at his provocative theories of different causes for cancer and HIV/AIDS. Inspired by UC Berkeley's rare creation of an archive for Duesberg's papers, this book explores Duesberg's early groundbreaking work with viruses and oncogenes, his contentious fights with other scientists, and the profound influence of his life's work.

Physical Biology of the Cell Lowest new price: $65.25
Lowest used price: $12.33
List price: $149.00
Author: Rob Phillips
Brand: Brand: Garland Science

Physical Biology of the Cell is a biophysics textbook that explores how the basic tools and insights of physics and mathematics can illuminate the study of molecular and cell biology. Drawing on key examples and seminal experiments from cell biology, the book demonstrates how quantitative models can help refine our understanding of existing biological data and also be used to make useful predictions. The book blends traditional models in cell biology with the quantitative approach typical in physics, in order to introduce the reader to both the possibilities and boundaries of the emerging field of physical biology. While teaching physical model building in cell biology through a practical, case-study approach, the text explores how quantitative modeling can be used to build a more profound, intuitive understanding of cell biology.

Complement Methods and Protocols (Methods in Molecular Biology)

Complement Methods and Protocols (Methods in Molecular Biology) Lowest new price: $40.75
Lowest used price: $18.00
List price: $169.99
Brand: Brand: Humana Press

The complement system, first described more than a century ago, was for many years the ugly duckling of the immunology world, but no more. Complement in recent years has blossomed into a fascinating and fast moving field of immediate relevance to clinical scientists in fields as diverse as transplantation biology, virology, and inflammation. Despite its emergence from the shadows, complement retains an unwarranted reputation for being “difficult.” This impression derives in large part from the superficially complicated nomenclature, a relic of the long and tortuous process of unraveling the system, of naming components in order of discovery rather than in a syst- atic manner. Once the barrier of nomenclature has been surmounted, then the true simplicity of the system becomes apparent. Complement comprises an activation system and a cytolytic system. The former has diverged to focus on complement to distinct targets―bacteria, - mune complexes, and others―so that texts now describe three activation pa- ways, closely related to one another, but each with some unique features. The cytolytic pathway is the same regardless of the activation process and kills cells by creating pores in the membrane. Complement plays an important role in killing bacteria and is essential for the proper handling of immune complexes. Problems occur when complement is activated in an inappropriate manner―the potent inflammation-inducing products of the cascade then cause unwanted tissue damage and destruction.
