Nuclear Receptors as Molecular Targets for Cardiometabolic by B. Staels

By B. Staels

Nuclear receptors are a relations of transcription components inclusive of forty nine contributors pointed out within the human genome. Nuclear receptors control transcription via binding to reaction components within the regulatory areas of objective genes and thereby impact expression of genes fascinated about differentiation, progress, lipid homeostasis, irritation and immunity. during the last twenty years major advances were made within the knowing of the legislation of gene expression via nuclear receptors.The wisdom on nuclear receptors has brought novel remedies for lipid regulate and hormone substitute, and for administration of melanoma and diabetes. hence, nuclear receptors are beautiful molecular pursuits for layout of remedy for diabetes, weight problems, atherosclerosis, melanoma, irritation and neurodegeneration. the focal point of this quantity is situated at the mechanistic involvement of nuclear receptors in cardiological, metabolic and neurological problems, on attainable clarification of pathways thinking about pathogenesis, on susceptibility to and prevention of metabolic and neurological problems and at the elements of drug discovering together with chemistry and rational drug layout. This quantity reports contemporary development on nuclear receptors seriously and should intrigue these pursuing curiosity in body structure, pathology and medicine.

Medizinische Physik by W. Schlegel, J. Bille

By W. Schlegel, J. Bille

Die medizinische Physik hat sich in den letzten Jahren zunehmend als interdisziplin?res Gebiet profiliert. Um dem Bedarf nach systematischer Weiterbildung von Physikern, die an medizinischen Einrichtungen t?tig sind, gerecht zu werden, wurde das vorliegende Werk geschaffen. Es basiert auf dem Heidelberger Kurs f?r medizinische Physik. Die three B?nde vermitteln das f?r die Fachanerkennung als Medizinphysiker notwendige medizinische und physikalische Wissen. Im Band 1 werden die medizinischen, medizintechnischen und biomathematischen Grundlagen behandelt. Band 2 ist der medizinischen Strahlenphysik, Tomographie, Ultraschalldiagnose, Nuklearmedizin und dem Strahlenschutz gewidmet. Band three stellt Grundlagen und Anwendung der medizinischen Laserphysik und Optik vor.
