This book provides the "nuts and bolts" background for a successful study of carbohydrates - the essential molecules that not only give you energy, but are an integral part of many biological processes. A question often asked is 'Why do carbohydrate chemistry?' The answer is simple: It is fundamental to a study of biology. Carbohydrates are the building blocks of life and enable biological processes to take place. Therefore the book will provide a taste for the subject of glycobiology. Covering the basics of carbohydrates and then the chemistry and reactions of carbohydrates this book will enable a chemist to gain essential knowledge that will enable them to move smoothly into the worlds of biochemistry, molecular biology and cell biology. * includes perspective from new co-author Spencer Williams, who enhances coverage of the connection between carbohydrates and life * describes the basic chemistry and biology of carbohydrates * reviews the concepts, synthesis, reactions, and biology of carbohydrates

The finding by Emil Fischer that glucose and fructose on treatment with phenylhydrazine gave the identical osazone led him to the elucidation of stereochemistry of carbohydrates. Since then, progress in the field of carbohydrates has been amazing with the unraveling their basic structure, biosynthesis, immunology, functions, and clinical uses, for pure carbohydrates and for protein-linked carbohydrates (glycoproteins and proteoglycans). The chapters in Carbohydrate Chemistry, Biology and Medical Applications present a logical sequence leading from the chemistry and biochemistry of carbohydrates, followed by their role in various pathological conditions, to carbohydrates as potential therapeutic and diagnostic agents. This book offers a detailed panoramic review of the chemistry and biology of carbohydrates for chemists, biologists and health professionals. Each chapter is authored by contributors expert in the particular area of research. Explains how carbohydrates are important to life Details the chemistry, biology and medical aspects of carbohydrates Interdisciplinary and international team of authors

Astrobiology is an interdisciplinary field that asks profound scientific questions. How did life originate on the Earth? How has life persisted on the Earth for over three billion years? Is there life elsewhere in the Universe? What is the future of life on Earth? Astrobiology: Understanding Life in the Universe is an introductory text which explores the structure of living things, the formation of the elements for life in the Universe, the biological and geological history of the Earth and the habitability of other planets in our own Solar System and beyond. The book is designed to convey some of the major conceptual foundations in astrobiology that cut across a diversity of traditional fields including chemistry, biology, geosciences, physics and astronomy. It can be used to complement existing courses in these fields or as a stand-alone text for astrobiology courses. Readership: Undergraduates studying for degrees in earth or life sciences, physics, astronomy and related disciplines, as well as anyone with an interest in grasping some of the major concepts and ideas in astrobiology.

The words, “prostate cancer”, overheard in casual conversation are enough to cause the average male to cringe. To actually be diagnosed with this condition is to many a devastating blow from which they never recover, neither emotionally nor physically. Matthew McLaren received the blow and turned it into a twofold opportunity. First, he overcame his own cancer. Secondly, he gave us detailed roadmaps so that others in the same situation can find their way out of it – or better yet, to bypass the quagmire entirely by taking simple preventative measures. This book is “must” reading both for anyone who has prostate cancer (or wishes to prevent it) and for anyone who treats this condition (or dispenses information about it). Within these covers, Matthew has created a virtual encyclopedia of the etiology, anatomy, physiology, biochemistry and treatments of prostate cancer – written in a style that is easy to understand by lay people and thorough enough for practitioners. He interweaves science and personal experience in a delightful way. The theme of this book is self-empowerment. Our body comes with its own innate healing power. It can cure itself of any condition – provided we give it the conditions it needs to do so, and in a timely manner. Matthew details what those conditions are. Much of the wisdom he expresses herein applies not only to prostate cancer but also to other forms of cancer and to disease in general.

Volume 40 of Carbohydrate Chemistry: Chemical and Biological Approaches demonstrates the importance of the glycosciences for innovation and societal progress. Carbohydrates are molecules with essential roles in biology and also serve as renewable resources for the generation of new chemicals and materials. Honouring Professor Andr� Lubineau's memory, this volume resembles a special collection of contributions in the fields of green and low-carbon chemistry, innovative synthetic methodology and design of carbohydrate architectures for medicinal and biological chemistry. Green methodology is illustrated by accounts on the industrial development of water-promoted reactions (C-glycosylation, cycloadditions) and the design of green processes and synthons towards sugar-based surfactants and materials. The especially challenging transformations at the anomeric center are presented in several contributions on glycosylation methodologies using iron or gold catalysis, electrochemical or enzymatic (thio)glycosylation, exo-glycal chemistry and bioengineering of carbohydrate synthases. Then, synthesis and structure of multivalent and supramolecular oligosaccharide architectures are discussed and related to their physical properties and application potential, e.g. for deepening our understanding of biological processes, such as enzymatic pathways or bacterial adhesion, and design of antibacterial, antifungal and innovative anticancer vaccines or drugs.

Achtung Weizen - gefährliches Hirnfutter! Weizen, das „Killerkorn“: Der Neurologe Dr. David Perlmutter belegt mit neuesten wissenschaftlichen Erkenntnissen, dass Weizen unsere Gesundheit, speziell unsere Denkleistung und unser Gedächtnis, massiv angreift. Das genetisch veränderte Getreide des 20. und 21. Jahrhunderts zerstört schleichend unser Gehirn. Eine Folge können chronische Kopfschmerzen, massive Schlafstörungen, Demenz oder sogar Alzheimer sein. Dr. Perlmutter zeigt dem Leser Alternativen mit kohlenhydratarmer und fettreicher Ernährung auf. Für ein gesundes Leben mit einem leistungsstarken Denkorgan bis ins hohe Alter hinein.
