Protein Homeostasis Diseases

Protein Homeostasis Diseases

Academic Press. 2020

Protein Homeostasis Diseases: Mechanisms and Novel Therapies offers an interdisciplinary examination of the fundamental aspects, biochemistry and molecular biology of protein homeostasis disease, including the use of natural and pharmacological small molecules to treat common and rare protein homeostasis disorders. Contributions from international experts discuss the biochemical and genetic components of protein homeostasis disorders, the mechanisms by which genetic variants may cause...

Rethinking Homeostasis

Rethinking Homeostasis

MIT Press. 2021

Jay Schulkin defines and explores many aspects of allostasis, including the wear and tear on tissues and accelerated pathophysiology caused by allostatic overload.

Fish Physiology: Homeostasis and Toxicology of Essential Metals

Fish Physiology: Homeostasis and Toxicology of Essential Metals

Academic Press. 2011

Homeostasis and Toxicology of Essential Metals synthesizes the explosion of new information on the molecular, cellular, and organismal handling of metals in fish in the past 15 years. These elements are no longer viewed by fish physiologists as "heavy metals" that kill fish by suffocation, but rather as interesting moieties that enter and leave fish by specific pathways, which are subject to physiological regulation. The metals featured in this volume are those about which there has been...

Mathematical Modeling of the Immune System in Homeostasis, Infection and Disease

Mathematical Modeling of the Immune System in Homeostasis, Infection and Disease

Frontiers Media SA. 2020

The immune system provides the host organism with defense mechanisms against invading pathogens and tumor development and it plays an active role in tissue and organ regeneration. Deviations from the normal physiological functioning of the immune system can lead to the development of diseases with various pathologies including autoimmune diseases and cancer. Modern research in immunology is characterized by an unprecedented level of detail that has progressed towards viewing the immune...
