This book describes the latest research on neurodegenerative disease and metal-binding proteins. It lays strong emphasis on biochemistry and cell biology. The diseases covered in the book include Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, prion disease, and ALS. The chapters separately examine such issues as mechanisms of metal binding, metal-induced structural changes in proteins, alterations in cellular metal metabolism in disease, and attempts at a therapeutic approach based on protein metal binding.

Biometals in Neurodegenerative Diseases: Mechanisms and Therapeutics is an authoritative and timely resource bringing together the major findings in the field for ease of access to those working in the field or with an interest in metals and their role in brain function, disease, and as therapeutic targets. Chapters cover metals in Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, Motor Neuron Disease, Autism and lysosomal storage disorders. This book is written for academic researchers, clinicians and advanced graduate students studying or treating patients in neurodegeneration, neurochemistry, neurology and neurotoxicology. The scientific literature in this field is advancing rapidly, with approximately 300 publications per year adding to our knowledge of how biometals contribute to neurodegenerative diseases. Despite this rapid increase in our understanding of biometals in brain disease, the fields of biomedicine and neuroscience have often overlooked this information. The need to bring the research on biometals in neurodegeneration to the forefront of biomedical research is essential in order to understand neurodegenerative disease processes and develop effective therapeutics. Authoritative and timely resource bringing together the major findings in the field for those with an interest in metals and their role in the brain function, disease, and as therapeutic targets Written for academic researchers, clinicians and advanced graduate students studying, or treating, patients in neurodegeneration, neurochemistry, neurology and neurotoxicology Edited by international leaders in the field who have contributed greatly to the study of metals in neurodegenerative diseases

Metal ions in the brain are a necessity as well as a poison. The presence of metal ions in the active sites of biological catalysts or metalloproteins and in the biological functioning of nucleic acids is very well documented and they are required for brain activity. On the other hand, metals are very effective in generating oxidative stress. This effect does not only play a role in immunology but also is the root of practically all neurodegenerative disorders by inducing disease via the death of neurons. Managing metal ions in the brain could therefore be an important strategy in the search for therapeutic agents used in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases. This new title gives an overview to key topics in the area of metal ions in the brain. It focuses on the role of metal ions in neurological systems by describing their advantageous functions as well as their poisonous features. It is therefore of interest for scientists in biochemistry and biophysics, physiology, toxicology as well as for physicians focused on this topic.

Bioinorganic chemistry has a cross disciplinary approach, applying the principles of chemistry to biological systems. Metallochemistry of Neurodegeneration: Biological, Chemical and Genetic Aspects discusses the rapidly developing area of metals in the nervous system and their role in neurodegenerative disease, such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and prion diseases. Written by leading experts in their fields, each chapter combines elements of genetics, biochemistry and biological inorganic chemistry in its discussion. The book highlights the differences in pathologies of neurodegenerative diseases but also discusses the mechanistic similarities. Sections include: metal ions and prion diseases; metal ions and Alzheimer disease; manganese in brain functioning; metal involvement in Parkinson disease; Cu-Zn superoxide dismutase and familial amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. This book will appeal to both chemists and biologists at the postgraduate and research level.

Speciation analysis is a field of trace element analytical chemistry that deals with detection, identification and determination of individual chemical forms of metals and metalloids. There has been increased awareness of the importance of elemental speciation over the last 20 years and this has lead to growing demand for analytical techniques capable of providing species-specific information. Hyphenated Techniques in Speciation Analysis offers a brief but comprehensive overview of hyphenated techniques and their various applications for the determination of chemical forms of trace elements. It brings a succinct presentation of the concept of speciation analysis, gives an overview of techniques based on coupling of chromatography with element and molecule specific detection and summarises their applications in the fields of environmental and industrial chemistry, biochemistry, nutrition, toxicology and medicine. Fully referenced, Hyphenated Techniques in Speciation Analysis is an invaluable introduction to elemental speciation analysis and also provides a practising analyst with a critical overview of research carried out in the field.

Synthesizes the current knowledge in the field and provides new insights into medical applications Metalloproteomics is the large-scale study of metal-binding proteins. These proteins, which represent about one quarter of all the proteins in the Protein Data Bank, play important roles in all biological systems and all biological processes. Metalloproteomics provides the latest information on all major families of metal-binding proteins, including their structural, physico-chemical, and functional properties, enabling readers to better understand these proteins. Moreover, the book demonstrates how understanding the structures, properties, and functions of intracellular and extracellular metal-binding proteins may unlock the key to drug development for the treatment of a myriad of diseases. Written by Eugene Permyakov, an international expert and pioneer in the structural analysis of metal-binding proteins, the book offers Theoretical introduction to cation binding Broad range of methods for investigating the binding of different cations to proteins Characteristics of interactions of physiologically important cations of Ca, Mg, Zn, Fe, Mn, Co, Cu, Ni, Mo, W, Na, and K with proteins Detailed considerations of structural and physico-chemical properties of the metal-binding proteins Interactions of all other metal cations with proteins Interactions of different types of cations with nucleic acids Throughout the text, the author integrates principles of proteomics. In addition, detailed examples underscore the role metal-binding proteins play in health and medicine. Bringing together and analyzing all the latest findings, Metalloproteomics' scope and level of insight are unparalleled. It is recommended for biophysicists, biochemists, enzymologists, cell and molecular biologists, protein and peptide scientists, organic and bioinorganic chemists, and chemical biologists.
