Nucleotides to Improve Health


Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms: Methods and Protocols (Methods in Molecular Biology, 578)

In recent years, single nucleotide polymorphisms have received increased and special attention in a rapidly developing field of personalized medicine and drug treatment. Comprising more than eighty percent of all known polymorphisms, single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are primarily responsible for phenotypic differences between individuals, and have been suggested to affect the development of diseases in humans and the response to drug treatment and environmental stress. In Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms: Methods and Protocols, Second Edition, expert researchers explore the latest advances in this area, highlighting the substantial progress that has been made in SNP genotyping, examining recent developments in high-throughput genotyping approaches, and exploring our new understanding of the impact of SNPs on gene function. Chapters address the impact of SNPs on phenotype, examine SNP databases, look at methods that have been applied for SNP bioinformatics discovery and analysis, and discuss advanced experimental approaches used for SNP detection. Composed in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology™ series format, each chapter contains a brief introduction, step-by-step methods, a list of necessary materials, and a Notes section which shares tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.

Chemistry of Nucleosides and Nucleotides: Volume 3

This third of four volumes continues the work of its well-received predecessors by providing comprehensive articles on specific lines of research. All volumes are written with medicinal chemists, organic chemists, physical chemists, and biological chemists in mind. Additionally, with the spate of recent research on the anticancer, antiviral, and antiparasitic properties of nucleosides and nucleotides, the volumes will interest oncologists, virologists, and pharmacologists

Genetic Consequences of Nucleotide Pool Imbalance (Basic Life Sciences, 31)

This book is concerned with the genetic consequences of nu­cleotide pool imbalance. There are a number of ways in which this state can be achieved and the majority of papers in this volume de­ scribe the effects of nucleotide pool imbalance on DNA replication and repair, and the induction of gene mutations in various organisms. This book grew out of a Conference on "Genetic Consequences of Nu­cleotide Pool Imbalance" which was held at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences on May 9-11, 1983. The Organizing Com­ mittee consisted of Drs. Diana Anderson (BIBRA), Robert Haynes (York University), Bernard Kunz (NIEHS), Barry Glickman (NIEHS), and Frederick J. de Serres (NIEHS), Chairman. The meeting was org- ized by the staff of the Office of the Associate Director for Genetics and was financed solely by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences.

Advanced Textbook On Gene Transfer, Gene Therapy And Genetic Pharmacology: Principles, Delivery And Pharmacological And Biomedical Applications Of Nucleotide-Based Therapies (Second Edition)

This unique advanced textbook provides a clear and comprehensive overview of gene delivery, gene therapy and genetic pharmacology, with descriptions of the main gene transfer vectors and a set of selected therapeutic applications, along with safety considerations. The second edition features new groundbreaking material on genome editing using the recently discovered CRISPR/Cas9 system and on cancer immunotherapy by CAR-T cells. It also presents the historical milestone of gene therapy application in the field of severe combined immunodeficiency, and other fields of gene therapy and molecular medicine. The use of gene transfer is exponentially growing in the scientific and medical communities for day-to-day cell biology experiments and swift development of gene therapy, which is already revolutionizing medicine. In this advanced textbook, more than 30 leading scientists come together to explore these topics. This educational introduction provides the background material needed to further explore the subject as well as relevant research literature. It is an invaluable resource to Master, PhD or MD students, post-doctoral scientists or medical doctors, as well as any scientist wishing to deliver a gene or synthetic nucleotide or develop a gene therapy strategy. The second edition's simple and synthetic content will be of value to any reader interested in the biological and medical revolution derived from the elucidation of the human genome.

Cyclic Nucleotides in the Nervous System

The elucidation of the cellular and molecular bases underlying the inte­ grated function of the central nervous system, both in disease and in health, must ultimately come from the combined efforts of scientists from many disciplines, including biology, chemistry, histology, pathology, physiology, pharmacology, and psychology. Communication between scientists from these various disciplines-vital to the advancement of our understanding of the function of the nervous system-has become more and more difficult in recent years. Both increasing specialization and the incredible increases in publications pertinent to brain research in a wide spectrum of journals, in symposium volumes, in monographs, in abstracts, and in reviews contrib­ ute to the problems of cross-communication and even of communication within a scientific discipline. Research on the significance of cyclic nucleo­tides to the function of nervous systems is particularly illustrative of the communication problem. Since the initial publications by Sutherland, Rall, and Butcher in the late fifties and early sixties on high levels of adenylate cyclase, phosphodiesterases, and cyclic AMP in brain, the ensuing litera­ ture of this field has expanded exponentially. At the present time, from five to ten publications relevant to cyclic nucleotides and the nervous system appear each week. Indeed, these are minimal numbers based mainly on examination of literature titles and key index words. Many articles concerned with some aspect of central function contain, buried within their text, experiments with or related to cyclic nucleotides.

Nucleotide Metabolism: An Introduction

Nucleotide Metabolism: An Introduction is a textbook exclusively focusing on the study of the aspects of nucleotide metabolism. The book intends to present the chemistry and metabolism of nucleotides, one of the oldest subjects of biochemistry. The text is divided in two parts. Part I considers the general aspects of nucleotide metabolism such as the history of the discovery of nucleotides; functions of nucleotides in cells; and group-transfer reactions during nucleotide metabolism. Part II deals with the synthesis, formation, and conversion of purine ribonucleotides. Biochemists, pharmacologists, and researchers in the fields of medicine and pharmaceuticals will find the book invaluable.
