Essential Fish Biology

Essential Fish Biology

Oxford University Press. 2017

An introductory overview of the functional biology of fish and how that may be affected by the contrasting habitat conditions within the aquatic environment. It describes the recent advances in comparative animal physiology which have greatly influenced our understanding of fish function as well as generating questions that have yet to be resolved. Fish taxa represent the largest number of vertebrates, with over 25,000 extant species. However, much of our knowledge, apart from taxonomy and...

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...

Sex and Gender Factors Affecting Metabolic Homeostasis, Diabetes and Obesity

Sex and Gender Factors Affecting Metabolic Homeostasis, Diabetes and Obesity

Springer. 2017

The book provides a reference for years to come, written by world-renowned expert investigators studying sex differences, the role of sex hormones, the systems biology of sex, and the genetic contribution of sex chromosomes to metabolic homeostasis and diseases. In this volume, leaders of the pharmaceutical industry present their views on sex-specific drug discovery. Many of the authors presented at the Keystone Symposium on “Sex and gender factors affecting metabolic homeostasis, diabetes...

Oxygen Sensing

Oxygen Sensing

Springer Science & Business Media. 2006

Proceedings of the XIVth International Symposium on Arterial Chemoreception, held June 24-28, 1999, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This volume, containing the proceedings of the fourteenth biannual ISAC meeting presents a new departure from their traditional focus on arterial chemoreceptors and their functions, in the expansion to include the study and discussion of oxygen sensing in other tissues and cells, and the genes involved. Bringing together scientists from cellular and systemic...

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...
