By John N. Abelson, Melvin I. Simon, Alfred H. Merrill Jr., Yusuf A. Hannun

Sphingolipids are present in all eukaryotic and in a few prokaryotic organisms and supply constitution for mobile membranes, lipoproteins, and different organic fabrics in addition to perform the law of mobile development, differentiation, and numerous telephone services, together with cell-cell verbal exchange, cell-substratum interactions, and intracellular sign transduction. This quantity offers equipment utilized in learning enzymes of sphingolipid biosynthesis and turnover, together with inhibitors of a few of those enzymes, genetic techniques, and natural and enzymatic syntheses of sphingolipids and analogs. Its significant other Volume 312 will comprise info on reading sphingolipids, sphingolipid shipping and trafficking, and sphingolipid-protein interactions and mobile targets.
The significantly acclaimed laboratory ordinary for greater than 40 years, Methods in Enzymology is among the so much hugely revered guides within the box of biochemistry. for the reason that 1955, every one quantity has been eagerly awaited, usually consulted, and praised by way of researchers and reviewers alike. Now with greater than three hundred volumes (all of them nonetheless in print), the sequence comprises a lot fabric nonetheless correct today--truly an important book for researchers in all fields of existence sciences

Carbohydrates. The Sweet Molecules of Life

This ebook is on carbohydrates-the crucial molecules that offer you power. they're the construction blocks of existence. This ebook can provide updated assurance on all points of carbohydrate chemistry. The molecules are often sugars, i. e. "sweet," for that reason the subtitle "The candy Molecules of existence. "
Carbohydrates first supplies the "nuts and bolts" of carbohydrate chemistry, allowing the reader to understand the following chapters on keeping teams and the reactions of monosaccharides. (The keeping teams do exactly that-they are wear the molecules as a short lived degree in the course of a number of reactions to prevent the inaccurate little bit of the molecule being replaced in the course of that response. )
* Introduces the elemental chemistry of carbohydrates
* Describes the strategies, holding teams, and reactions of carbohydrates
* comprises all features of the synthesis of the glycosidic linkage
* provides an creation to glycobiology and vaccines
* comprises references to carbohydrate literature

Nitric Oxide Donors: For Pharmaceutical and Biological Applications

Wang (biochemistry, The Ohio nation collage) combines remedy of the chemistry of nitric oxide liberating components with examples in their sensible purposes in biology and drug layout. insurance encompasses all periods of nitric oxide donors, from natural nitrates to nitroso compounds, guanidines, and metal-NO complexes.

Reactive distillation : status and future directions

In a reactive distillation column, either the chemical conversion and the distillative separation of the product blend are performed at the same time. via this integrative procedure, chemical equilibrium barriers may be conquer, larger selectivities may be accomplished and warmth of response could be at once used for distillation.
