Biochemistry of Platelets by David Phillips

By David Phillips

Biochemistry of Platelets is a finished evaluation of the biochemistry of platelets, with emphasis at the molecular foundation for a number of the organic techniques during which they take part. issues variety from stimulus-response coupling mechanisms to platelet contractile proteins, platelet membrane glycoproteins, and garage organelles in platelets and megakaryocytes. The expression and serve as of adhesive proteins at the platelet floor can also be discussed.

Comprised of 12 chapters, this e-book starts with an outline of the morphological and metabolic responses to agonists, in addition to the involvement of definite tactics within the coupling of agonist-receptor interactions to platelet responses. the next bankruptcy bargains with platelet arachidonate metabolism and platelet-activating issue, targeting the discharge of arachidonate from platelet lipid shops; pathways of platelet arachidonate metabolism and results of arachidonate metabolites; and inhibition of platelet arachidonate metabolism by means of aspirin. The constitution, functionality, and amendment in illness of platelet membrane glycoproteins are then mentioned, besides prothrombin activation on platelets and platelet rules of thrombus formation. Secreted platelet proteins as markers for pathological issues also are considered.

This monograph is meant as a reference for investigators all in favour of platelet learn in addition to a resource of data for these operating in different parts of organic investigation.

Nitric Oxide in the Eye by S. Kashii,A. Akaike,Y. Honda

By S. Kashii,A. Akaike,Y. Honda

Nitric oxide (NO) is an easy fuel with unfastened radical homes. not anyone could have imagined a task for this sort of easy substance within the human physique. In 1998, R. E Furchgott, E Murad, and L. J. Ignarro bought the Nobel prize for his or her paintings on NO. apparently, Alfred B. Nobel, who invented dynamite through combining nitro­ glycerin with different elements, took nitroglycerin for his chest ache with out knowing that NO mediates its motion. Now, as well as its vasodilating motion, NO is understood to own many primary services that come with neurotrans­ venture, blood strain regulate, blood clotting, and immune responses. those assorted capabilities, conversely, indicate that the easy NO molecule may well unite neuroscience, body structure, and immunology and should switch our realizing of ways cells speak and shield themselves. during this context, the Inter­ nationwide Symposium, Nitric Oxide and loose Radicals, used to be prepared to deal with present brooding about the frequent distribution and diversity of services of NO within the eye. The symposium was once held in Kyoto, Japan, September 28-29 as a satellite tv for pc Symposium of the XII overseas Congress of Eye study, 1996. The Symposium used to be the 1st foreign amassing of prime scientists and ophthalmologists assembly to offer and speak about their latest leads to a really good sector of analysis, in particular in regards to the eye.

Adipositas im Kindes- und Jugendalter. Therapeutische by Semih Önder

By Semih Önder

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2015 im Fachbereich Biologie - Krankheiten, Gesundheit, Ernährung, be aware: 2.0, Universität Bielefeld, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Adipositas und Übergewicht sind in allen westlichen Industriestaaten, wie England, Frankreich, Deutschland, united states sowie Japan weit verkündete Probleme. Jedes Jahr steigen die Zahlen der Neuerkrankungen an.
Im Rahmen dieser Hausarbeit werden Ihnen unter anderem die Ursachen von Adipositas erklärt. used to be ist überhaupt Fettleibigkeit und wie lässt es sich therapieren?

Besonders die steigende Prävalenz genannt, von Adipositas im Kindes- und Jugendalter ist besorgniserregend. ,,Wir leben in einer Umwelt, die das Entstehen von Übergewicht und Adipositas begünstigt“ (Laessle, o.S., 2000). Vor einigen Jahren stellte Adipositas ein challenge dar, dass überwiegend Erwachsene betraf, jedoch leiden inzwischen immer mehr Kinder unter Adipositas und den physischen und psychischen Folgen. Für die Kinder steigt das Risiko ernsthafter Erkrankungen mit zunehmendem regulate und Gewicht.

Dem Thema Adipositas wird im Bereich der sozialen Arbeit noch nicht ausreichend Relevanz beigemessen. Dies gab mir Anlass, mich in shape einer Hausarbeit ausführlicher mit dem Thema Adipositas auseinanderzusetzen. Mich interessiert es, wie Adipositas-Patienten behandelt werden. used to be sind die Ursachen von Adipositas? Wie müssen sie ihr Leben verändern, damit sie in der Zukunft ,,gesund“ leben können? Warum essen Menschen zu viel?

Mithilfe dieser Hausarbeit möchte ich ebenfalls der Frage nachgehen, used to be eine ,,gesunde Ernährung“ im Hinblick auf Adipositas bedeutet, da unser Biologiekurs den Titel ,,Zwischen Essen und Ernährung können Welten liegen“, trägt. Um einen Einblick in das Thema zu geben wird zunächst Adipositas definiert. Anschließend werden die Formen von Adipositas beschrieben. Danach werden die Ursachen von Adipositas erläutert und der Frage nachgegangen, warum Menschen zu viel essen. Darauf aufbauend wird Bezug auf die sozialen Faktoren genommen. Des Weiteren werden die Konsequenzen von Adipositas behandelt. Dabei werden die physischen Folgeerkrankungen und die gesellschaftlichen Auswirkungen näher betrachtet. Im Schlussteil meiner Hausarbeit will ich die Therapie- und Behandlungsformen von Adipositas detailliert vorstellen. Im Fazit werden die wichtigsten Aspekte zusammengefasst.
