Cell Biology of the Ovary: Stem Cells, Development, Cancer, and Clinical Aspects (Repost)

Cell Biology of the Ovary: Stem Cells, Development, Cancer, and Clinical Aspects By Hidetaka Katabuchi
English | EPUB | 2018 | 165 Pages | ISBN : 9811079404 | 2.01 MB

This unique compilation focuses on a very curious organ, the ovary. There are still many unknown facts about the origins of ovarian tissue and ovarian cancer, and each chapter describes in detail the latest insights into the ovary from basic to clinical aspects. Expert authors reveal the most recent findings on ovariogenesis and ovarian carcinogenesis by shedding light on stem cell biology for the ovarian surface epithelial cells or primordial germ cells.

Marine Organisms as Model Systems in Biology and Medicine

Marine Organisms as Model Systems in Biology and Medicine by Malgorzata Kloc
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 627 Pages | ISBN : 3319924850 | 111.21 MB

This book highlights the potential advantages of using marine invertebrates like tunicates, echinoderms, sponges and cephalopods as models in both biological and medical research. Bioactive compounds found in marine organisms possess antibacterial, antifungal, anti-diabetic and anti-inflammatory properties, and can affect the immune and nervous systems. Despite substantial research on the medicinal attributes of various marine invertebrates, they are still very much underrepresented in scientific literature: the majority of cell, developmental and evolutionary scientific journals only publish research conducted on a few well-known model systems like Drosophila melanogaster or Xenopus laevis.

Modeling Methods for Medical Systems Biology: Regulatory Dynamics Underlying the Emergence of Disease Processes

Modeling Methods for Medical Systems Biology: Regulatory Dynamics Underlying the Emergence of Disease Processes by María Elena Álvarez-Buylla Roces
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 273 Pages | ISBN : 331989353X | 33.56 MB

This book contributes to better understand how lifestyle modulations can effectively halt the emergence and progression of human diseases. The book will allow the reader to gain a better understanding of the mechanisms by which the environment interferes with the bio-molecular regulatory processes underlying the emergence and progression of complex diseases, such as cancer. Focusing on key and early cellular bio-molecular events giving rise to the emergence of degenerative chronic disease, it builds on previous experience on the development of multi-cellular organisms, to propose a mathematical and computer based framework that allows the reader to analyze the complex interplay between bio-molecular processes and the (micro)-environment from an integrative, mechanistic, quantitative and dynamical perspective.
Stingless Bees of Mexico: The Biology, Management and Conservation of an Ancient Heritage

Stingless Bees of Mexico: The Biology, Management and Conservation of an Ancient Heritage by José Javier G. Quezada-Euán
English | PDF | 2018 | 296 Pages | ISBN : 331977784X | 19.19 MB

The stingless bees are the most diverse group of highly social bees and are key species in our planet’s tropical and subtropical regions, where they thrive. In Mexico, the management of stingless bees dates back centuries, and they were an essential part of the culture and cosmogony of native peoples like the Maya. In recent decades a vast amount of information has been gathered on stingless bees worldwide. This book summarizes various aspects of the biology and management of stingless bees, with special emphasis on the Mexican species and the traditions behind their cultivation. Much of the information presented here was produced by the author and the team of researchers at the Universidad Autónoma de Yucatán in the course of three decades of working with these insects. Given the breadth of its coverage, the book offers an equally valuable reference guide for academics, students and beekeepers alike.
