Title:Biophysics of DNA-Protein Interactions [electronic resource] : From Single Molecules to Biological Systems
Author(s): Mark C Williams
L. James Maher
Date:2011
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book presents a concise overview of current research on the biophysics of DNA-protein interactions. A wide range of new and classical methods are presented by authors investigating physical mechanisms by which proteinsinteract with DNA. For exam ple, several chapters address the mechanisms by which proteins search for and recognize specific binding sites on DNA, a process critical for cellular function. Single molecule methods such as forcespectroscopy as well as fluorescence imaging and tracking are described in these chapters as well as other parts of the book that address the dynamics of protein-DNA interactions. Other important topics include the mechanisms by whichproteins engage DNA sequences and/or alter DNA structure. These simple but imp ortant model interactions are then placed in the broader biological context with discussion of larger protein-DNA complexes . Topics include replicationforks, recombination complexes, DNA repair interactions, and ultimately, methods to understand the chro matin context of the cell nucleus. This book will be of interest to readers who wish to explore current biophysical approaches toDNA-protein interactions across multiple levels of biological complexity

Title:Non-Protein Coding RNAs [electronic resource]
Author(s): Nils G Walter
Sarah A Woodson
Robert T Batey
Date:2009
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book assembles chapters from experts in the Biophysics of RNA to provide a broadly accessible snapshot of the current status of this rapidly expanding field. The 2006 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine was awarded to thediscoverers of RNA int erference, highlighting just one example of a large number of non-protein coding RNAs. Because non-protein coding RNAs outnumber protein coding genes in mammals and other higher eukaryotes, it is now thought thatthe complexity of organisms is correlated w ith the fraction of their genome that encodes non-protein coding RNAs. Essential biological processes as diverse as cell differentiation, suppression of infecting viruses and parasitictransposons, higher-level organization of eukaryotic chromosomes, and g ene expression itself are found to largely be directed by non-protein coding RNAs. The biophysical study of these RNAs employs X-ray crystallography, NMR, ensembleand single molecule fluorescence spectroscopy, optical tweezers, cryo-electron microscopy, a nd other quantitative tools. This emerging field has begun to unravel the molecular underpinnings of how RNAs fulfill their multitude of rolesin sustaining cellular life. The physical and chemical understanding of RNA biology that results from biophysical studies is critical to our ability to harness RNAs for use in biotechnology and human therapy, a prospect that hasrecently spawned a multi-billion dollar industry

Title:Cellular Signaling in Health and Disease [electronic resource]
Author(s): Martin Beckerman
Date:2009
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer US
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:In todays world, three great classes of non-infectious diseases the metabolic syndromes (such as type 2 diabetes and atherosclerosis), the cancers, and the neurodegenerative disorders have risen to the fore. Thesediseases, all associated with incre asing age of an individual, have proven to be remarkably complex and difficult to treat. This is because, in large measure, when the cellular signaling pathways responsible for maintaining homeostasisand health of the body become dysregulated, they genera te equally stable disease states. As a result the body may respond positively to a drug, but only for a while and then revert back to the disease state. Cellular Signaling inHealth and Disease summarizes our current understanding of these regulatory netwo rks in the healthy and diseased states, showing which molecular components might be prime targets for drug interventions. This is accomplished bypresenting models that explain in mechanistic, molecular detail how a particular part of the cellular signalin g web operates properly in health and improperly in disease. The stability of the health- and disease-associated states isdynamic and supported by multiple feedback loops acting positively and negatively along with linkages between pathways. During the pa st few years an ongoing series of important discoveries have been made that advance our understandingof how the body works and may guide us on how to better deal with these diseases. These include the discovery of chronic inflammation as a causal factor i n all of these disease classes, the appearance of reactive oxygen species as amessenger molecule that can act both positively and negatively, the propensity of proteins to misfold into aggregation- and disease-prone forms, and the rise of epigenetics incl uding the emergence of small non-coding RNA with importantregulatory functions out of the so-called junk RNA. Chapters are devoted to each of these classes of findings with additional details i

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:All living cells are able to detect and translate environmental stimuli into biologically meaningful signals. Sensations of touch, hearing, sight, taste, smell or pain are essential to the survival of all living organisms. Theimportance of sensory in put for the existence of life thus justifies the effort made to understand its molecular origins. Sensing with Ion Channels focuses on ion channels as key molecules enabling biological systems to sense andprocess the physical and chemical stimuli that act upon cells in their living environment. Its aim is to serve as a reference to ion channel specialists and as a source of new information to non specialists who want to learn about thestructural and functional diversity of ion channels and their role in s ensory physiology

Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Cell motility is a fascinating example of cell behavior which is fundamentally important to a number of biological and pathological processes. It is based on a complex self-organized mechano-chemical machine consisting ofcytoskeletal filaments and mo lecular motors. In general, the cytoskeleton is responsible for the movement of the entire cell and for movements within the cell. The main challenge in the field of cell motility is to develop a completephysical description on how and why cells move. For this purpose new ways of modeling the properties of biological cells have to be found. This long term goal can only be achieved if new experimental techniques are developed to extractphysical information from these living systems and if theoretical model s are found which bridge the gap between molecular and mesoscopic length scales. Cell Motility gives an authoritative overview of the fundamental biological facts,theoretical models, and current experimental developments in this fascinating area

Note:Mathematical models in biology and medicine cannot be based on natural laws as it is the case with physics and chemistry. This is due to the fact that biological and medical processes are concerned with living organisms.Mathematical models, however, can be used as a language by which certain aspects of biological or medical processes can be expressed. In general, several mathematical models can be designed in order to describe a biological or medicalprocess and there is no unique criterion which mode l gives the best description. This book presents several of these models and shows applications of them to different biological and medical problems. The book shows that operationsresearch expertise is necessary in respect to modeling, analysis and optimi zation of biosystems

Title:Killer Cell Dynamics [electronic resource] : Mathematical and Computational Approaches to Immunology
Author(s): Dominik Wodarz
Date:2007
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book reviews how mathematics can be used in combination with biological data in order to improve understanding of how the immune system works. This is illustrated largely in the context of viral infections. Mathematicalmodels allow scientists to capture complex biological interactions in a clear mathematical language and to follow them to their precise logical conclusions. This can give rise to counter-intuitive insights which would not be attainedby experiments alone, and can be used for the de sign of further experiments in order to address the mathematical results. This book provides both an introduction to the field of mathematical immunology, and an overview of many topicswhich are the subject of current research, covering a broad variety of immunological topics. It starts with basic principles of immunology and covers the dynamical interactions between the immune system and specific viral infections,including important human pathogens such as HIV. General biological and mathematical backgro und material to both virus infection and immune system dynamics is provided, and each chapter begins with a simple introduction to thebiological questions examined. This book is intended for an interdisciplinary audience. It explains the concept of mathem atical modeling in immunology and shows how modeling has been used to address specific questions. It is intendedboth for the mathematical biologists who are interested in immunology, and for the biological readership that is interested in the use of mathe matical models in immunology. Dominik Wodarz is an Associate Professor at the Department ofEcology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of California, Irvine

Title:The Thermodynamic Machinery of Life [electronic resource]
Author(s): Michal Kurzynski
Date:2006
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Living organisms are open thermodynamic systems whose functional structure has developed and been kinetically frozen during the historical process of biological evolution. A thermodynamics of both nonequilibrium and complexsystems is needed for their description. In this book, the foundations of such a thermodynamics are presented. Biological processes at the cellular level are considered as coupled chemical reactions and transport processes acrossinternal and the cytoplasmic membrane. All these proc esses are catalyzed by specific enzymes hence the kinetics of enzymatic catalysis and its control are described here in detail. The coupling of several processes through a commonenzyme is considered in the context of free energy or signal transduction. Sp ecial attention is paid to evidence for a rich stochastic internal dynamics of native proteins and its possible role in the control of enzyme activity and inthe action of biological molecular machines

Title:Tutorials in Mathematical Biosciences II [electronic resource] : Mathematical Modeling of Calcium Dynamics and Signal Transduction
Author(s): James Sneyd
Date:2005
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book presents a series of models in the general area of cell physiology and signal transduction, with particular attention being paid to intracellular calcium dynamics, and the role played by calcium in a variety of celltypes. Calcium plays a cr ucial role in cell physiology, and the study of its dynamics lends insight into many different cellular processes. In particular, calcium plays a central role in muscular contraction, olfactory transduction andsynaptic communication, three of the topics t o be addressed in detail in this book. In addition to the models, this book also presents much of the underlying physiology, so that readers may learn both the mathematics and the physiologyat the same time, and see how the models are applied to specific biological questions. It is thus neither a mathematics book nor a physiology book, but has features from both sides of the fence. It is intended primarily as a graduatetext or a research reference. However, some parts of the book, particularly the introdu ctory chapters on calcium dynamics will be well within the reach of some undergraduates. It will serve as a concise and up-to-date introduction toall those who wish to learn about the state of calcium dynamics modeling, and how such models are applied to physiological questions

Title:Biophysical Aspects of Transmembrane Signaling [electronic resource]
Author(s): Sandor Damjanovich
Date:2005
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Transmembrane signaling is one of the most significant cell biological events in the life and death of cells in general and lymphocytes in particular. Until recently biochemists and biophysicists were not accustomed to thinkingof these processes from the side of a high number of complex biochemical events and an equally high number of physical changes at molecular and cellular levels at the same time. Both types of researchers were convinced that theirfindings are the most decisive, having higher imp ortance than the findings of the other scientist population. Both casts were wrong. Life, even at cellular level, has a number of interacting physical and biochemical mechanisms, whichfinally build up the creation of an excited cell that will respond to p articular signals from the outer or inner world. This book handles both aspects of the signalling events, and in some cases tries to unify our concepts and helpunderstand the signals that govern the life and death of our cells. Not only the understanding, but also the interference (e.g. medication) may depend on the full knowledge of both sides. These above statements are supported by theapplication of highly diverse physical and biochemical technologies demonstrated and explained by experts who are pione ers of their particular scientific field

Title:Molecular and Cellular Signaling [electronic resource]
Author(s): Martin Beckerman
Date:2005
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:A small number of signaling pathways, no more than a dozen or so, form a control layer that is responsible for all signaling in and between cells of the human body. The signaling proteins belonging to the control layer determinewhat kinds of cells ar e made during development and how they function during adult life. Malfunctions in the proteins belonging to the control layer are responsible for a host of human diseases ranging from neurological disorders tocancers. Most drugs target components in the control layer, and difficulties in drug design are intimately related to the architecture of the control layer. Molecular and Cellular Signaling provides an introduction to molecular andcellular signaling in biological systems with an emphasis on the unde rlying physical principles. The text is aimed at upper-level undergraduates, graduate students and individuals in medicine and pharmacology interested in broadeningtheir understanding of how cells regulate and coordinate their core activities and how dise ases arise when these regulatory systems malfunction, as well as those in chemistry, physics and computer science interested in pursuing careersin biological and medical physics, bioinformatics and systems biology. To that end, the book includes backgroun d information and review sections, and chapters on signaling in the immune, endocrine (hormonal) and nervous systems. It haschapters on cancer, apoptosis and gene regulation, and contains chapters on bacteria and viruses. In those chapters not specificall y devoted to pathogens, connections between diseases, drugs and signaling are made. Each chapter alsofeatures a problem set to facilitate further discussion and understanding.
