Chemokines, Chemokine Receptors and Disease by Dale J. Benos

Book Description

This volume in the "Current Topics in Membranes" series discusses the biology of chemokines and their binding partners, chemokine receptors, in normal and disease-related states. Chemokines are small proteins that are important in normal immune responses. Recent research demonstrates a role for these proteins in a variety of diseases such as heart disease, allergy, asthma, and cancer. As a result of the discovery of this link to disease, the topic of chemokines and drugs that block their actions has become an intense are of study. This book presents the topics of chemokines, chemokine receptors, and related pathologies in an integrated manner that provides the reader with a comprehensive and up-to-date knowledge of these topics. It provides a comprehensive overview of the history, molecular biology, cell biology, pharmacology, physiology, and pathophysiology of chemokines and their receptors. Each chapter discusses "future directions and unanswered questions" of chemokine biology. It also serves as a road map for future research.

Books By Author Dale J. Benos

Eye's Aqueous Humor by Dale J. Benos Eye's Aqueous Humor, Hardback (October 2008)

A study of cellular membranes. It discusses transport; ocular aquaporins and aqueous humor dynamics; the role of Gap junction channels in the ciliary body secretory epithelium; regional dependence of inflow; functional modulators linking inflow with outflow of aqueous humor; aqueous humor outflow resistance; and aqueous humor dynamis.

Computational Modeling of Membrane Bilayers by Dale J. Benos Computational Modeling of Membrane Bilayers, Hardback (August 2008)

Offers an approach to specific topics relevant to the study of cellular membranes. This volume discusses the state of electrostatics in biomolecular simulations and future directions. It includes information on time and length scales in lipid bilayer simulations. It also covers the nature of lipid rafts.

Mechanosensitive Ion Channels by Dale J. Benos Mechanosensitive Ion Channels, Hardback (June 2007)

Provides a comprehensive approach to specific topics relevant to the study of cellular membranes. This volume includes: ENaC Proteins in Vascular Smooth Muscle Mechanotransduction; Regulation of the Mechano-Gated K2P Channel TREK-1 by Membrane Phospholipids; MechanoTRPs and TRPA1; TRPC; Lipid Stress at Play: And more.

Nociceptive Membrane by Dale J. Benos Nociceptive Membrane, Hardback (July 2006)

Membranes are essential cellular organelles. They not only define cells and other organelles, but also are critical in the cell function by selectively regulating the passage of molecules by acting as a matrix for other signaling molecules. This title covers Nociceptive Membrane. It is intended for practicing scientists and students.
