The Chemistry of Polypeptides: Essays in Honor of Dr. by Panayotis G. Katsoyannis (auth.), P. G. Katsoyannis (eds.)

By Panayotis G. Katsoyannis (auth.), P. G. Katsoyannis (eds.)

Leonidas Zervas, Emeritus Professor of natural chemistry on the college of Athens, and prior president of the nationwide Academy of Greece, cele­ brated his 70th birthday this earlier yr. for nearly fifty years Zervas dedicated his medical talents and belief to the development of chemistry, relatively within the box of peptides and proteins. certainly, his efforts, in addition to these of his instructor, co-worker, and buddy, Max Bergmann, laid the principles for a brand new period within the chemistry of peptides and proteins. a lot of his colleagues and previous scholars felt that it'd be such a lot at the present to honor him with a commemorative quantity. They acceptable have contributed to this quantity chapters describing a few of their paintings and reviewing the developments particularly parts of polypeptide chemistry. They commit this quantity to Leonidas Zervas as an expression in their esteem and appreciation for the position he has performed for the previous half-century within the box of peptides and proteins.

Reactions, Processes: Oxidants and Antioxidant Defense by Hans Nohl, Andrey V. Kozlov, Lars Gille, Katrin Staniek

By Hans Nohl, Andrey V. Kozlov, Lars Gille, Katrin Staniek (auth.), Tilman Grune (eds.)

Oxidative tension is among the significant indicators accompanying physiological capabilities and diverse illnesses. Oxidants and loose radicals are hooked up with illnesses akin to melanoma, diabetes, infectious, cardiovascular and neurodegenerative illnesses and likewise within the getting older strategy itself. for this reason, complete wisdom of the underlying mechanisms of oxidant and loose radical creation and the defence in contrast everlasting probability to cells is critical for the knowledge of many physiological and pathophysiological techniques. This ebook overviews the elemental mechanisms of oxidant formation and antioxidant defences. furthermore, the formation of oxidants and their detoxing, the wear and tear of macromolecules and the main fix and elimination structures can be highlighted.
