Reactive oxygen species (ROS) which include free radicals, peroxides, singlet oxygen, ozone, and nitrogen monoxide and dioxide free radicals, is an area of intense research. This volume covers (1) the destruction of cellular function by ROS resulting in pathological states; (2) the protection by ROS of an organism against invading organisms that cause infections; and (3) the role of ROS in normal physiological processes. Designed for beginning graduate... more...

Vents and seeps are the epitome of life in extreme environments. This book provides an overview of the different habitats, their specific conditions as well as the technical challenges that have to be met when studying them. The book provides the current state of the art and is a valuable resource for everybody that has an interest in such environments.

From Eugenia Bone, the critically acclaimed author of Mycophilia, comes an approachable, highly personal look at our complex relationship with the microbial world. While researching her book about mushrooms, Eugenia Bone became fascinated with the huge impact microbes have on every aspect of life. But as she began reading scholarly works in an attempt to grasp the microbiology, she quickly realized she couldn't do it alone.... more...

Infectious diseases are the leading cause of death worldwide, and are increasing in almost every nation, including the United States; they ranked third among the leading causes of death in the U.S. in 1992. Infectious diseases can be caused by bacteria, parasites, viruses, and other microbes such as fungus. They are part of everyday life, and range in severity from strep throat to AIDS. Mims' Pathogenesis of Infectious Disease has been the landmark... more...

Quinolones constitute a large class of synthetic antimicrobial agents that are highly effective in the treatment of many types of infectious diseases, particularly those caused by bacteria. New quinolones are continually being developed as bacterial species develop resistance to existing quinolones. This book presents the most current information available in our continual struggle to conquer disease.Over time, bacteria become resistant to medicines... more...

The pioneering findings of Dr. Koki Horikoshi on the discovery, research and applications of alkaliphilic bacteria are described here in their entirety. Discussion ranges from introductory background on taxonomy, cell structure and physiology, to enzymes and their applications. Alkaliphiles are a relatively recent field of research that will open avenues to a wide range of further discoveries and applications for an emerging generation of workers in... more...

Introduction to Protein Structure provides an account of the principles of protein structure, with examples of key proteins in their biological context generously illustrated in full-color to illuminate the structural principles described in the text. The first few chapters introduce the general principles of protein structure both for novices and for non-specialists needing a primer. Subsequent chapters use specific examples of proteins to show how... more...

Collins and Lyne's Microbiological Methods, 8th edition is a fully revised and up-to-date edition of this classic bench book.

Interest in biodegradable and absorbable polymers is growing rapidly in large part because of their biomedical implant and drug delivery applications. This text illustrates creative approaches to custom designing unique, fiber-forming materials for equally unique applications. It includes an example of the development and application of a new absorbable system, a condensed encyclopedia on novel PEG-based copolyesters, and the first comprehensive... more...
