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...

Dan Chiras's Human Biology continues to present the latest information on the structure, function, health, and disease of the human body in a modernized ninth edition. This acclaimed text explores the world from the cellular level, followed by a look at tissues and organs before progressing to a discussion of humans within the environment. Dr. Chiras discusses the scientific process in a thought-provoking way that challenges students to become deeper, more critical thinkers. The focus on...

Molecular Biology of Metal Homeostasis and Detoxification

Molecular Biology of Metal Homeostasis and Detoxification

Springer Science & Business Media. 2006

One of the challenges faced by every cell as well as by whole organisms is to maintain appropriate concentrations of essential nutrient metals while excluding nonessential toxic metals. Toward that end, all organisms have developed mechanisms for metal homeostasis and detoxification to maintain metal levels within physiological limits. This book brings together current knowledge of the molecular basis of metal homeostasis and detoxification in various eukaryotic model systems, including...
