Energy Metabolism and Lifespan Determination by M. P. Mattson

Book Description

Experts in the fields of energy metabolism, aging and oxidative stress provide an integrated view of how mechanisms involved in regulating energy metabolism are linked to fundamental processes of aging including cellular stress resistance and free radical production. During evolution signal transduction pathways and organ systems have been optimised for the efficient seeking, ingestion, storing and using of energy. These signalling pathways play prominent roles in lifespan determination with insulin and related signalling pathways being prime examples. The authors consider how lifespan and healthspan can be extended through knowledge of energy metabolism with the experimental model of dietary restriction being one example. The information in this volume of ACAG will foster novel approaches and experiments for further understanding the roles of energy metabolism in aging and disease.

Reviews the area of telomerase research with a focus at the molecular and cellular levels. This volume is suitable for graduate students and postdocs in the telomerase field and for established investigators in other fields who are beginning to study telomerase in their particular research program.

Interorganellar Signaling in Age-Related Disease by M. P. Mattson Interorganellar Signaling in Age-Related Disease, Hardback (April 2001)

Includes chapters which provide the reader with insight into the inter-relationships of the function of different organelles in the sequences of events that lead to cellular dysfunction and degeneration in the aging human population.

Programmed Cell Death by M. P. Mattson Programmed Cell Death, Hardback (April 2001)

Apoptosis, or programmed cell death, is an adaptive form of cell death that plays a critical role in turnover of mitotic cells and various tissues in the adult, including epithelial cells, fibroblasts and various endocrine cells. This book details the molecular, biochemical and cellular mechanisms of apoptosis.
