Comparative Studies of Energy Homeostasis in Vertebrates

Comparative Studies of Energy Homeostasis in Vertebrates

Frontiers Media SA. 2018

A brief glimpse into new insight driving the comparative biology of energy homeostasis in vertebrates with a focus on non-mammalian vertebrates. What are the key conserved mechanisms and what aspects of feeding behavior and energy allocation are different between species?

Examination Questions and Answers in Basic Anatomy and Physiology

Examination Questions and Answers in Basic Anatomy and Physiology

Springer. 2018

This second edition provides 2400 multiple choice questions on human anatomy and physiology, and some physical science, separated into 40 categories. The answer to each question is accompanied by an explanation. Each category has an introduction to set the scene for the questions to come. However, not all possible information is provided within these Introductions, so an Anatomy and Physiology textbook is an indispensable aid to understanding the answers. The questions have been used in...

Metal Biology Takes Flight: The Study of Metal Homeostasis and Detoxification in Insects

Metal Biology Takes Flight: The Study of Metal Homeostasis and Detoxification in Insects

Frontiers Media SA. 2018

Metals such as copper, iron, manganese, and zinc are clearly required for proper metabolism and development, while imbalances can lead to systemic dysfunction and disease. As a result, organisms have evolved complex genetic systems for the regulation of metal levels, including import, export, and sequestration of metals within cells and sub-cellular compartments. The study of metal biology in insects has the potential to greatly expand our understanding of metal biology. The results of such...

Metabolic Control of Brain Homeostasis

Metabolic Control of Brain Homeostasis

Frontiers Media SA. 2017

Brain function is under metabolic control, which in turn determines the equilibrium of homeostatic systems that affect neuronal and glial networks on the molecular, cellular, and systems levels. The collection of articles ranges from molecules and mechanisms involved in regulating homeostasis and neuronal excitability to therapeutic mechanisms tailored to restore homeostatic function. It also features neurological diseases and novel treatment approaches that are based on metabolic and...

The Immunology of Cardiovascular Homeostasis and Pathology

The Immunology of Cardiovascular Homeostasis and Pathology

Springer. 2017

Cardiovascular immunology is a newly emerging research area, investigating the crosstalk between the cardiovascular and the immune system. This crosstalk is evident through (1) crucial immunological capacities and functions of cardiovascular cell types, including cardiomyocytes, fibroblasts, endothelial cells, pericytes and cardiac resident macrophages, (2) the impact of aberrant immune function on the development of cardiovascular disease such as atherosclerosis, direct and indirect...
