The ubiquitous roles of cytochrome P450 proteins( Book )

11 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Looking across the tree of life, it is amazing to find cytochrome P450 proteins represented in all life forms. Volume 3, devoted solely to the vital and still expanding research area concerning P450s, offers in 17 stimulating chapters written by 36 internationally recognized experts an authoritative and timely account of this fascinating subject. The Ubiquitous Roles of Cytochrome P450 Proteins highlights, supported by nearly 2700 references, more than 20 tables and 190 illustrations, the function of these versatile catalysts which act as monooxygenases and insert an oxygen atom from dioxygen into a substrate molecule oxidizing it. P450s are important in the biosynthesis of hormones and signaling molecules as well as in xenobiotic metabolism and detoxification ranging from pharmaceuticals in humans to toxic substances in insects and plants. Mechanistic aspects and the design and engineering of P450 systems for biotechnological applications are also covered. MILS-3 is essential for scientists working in the wide range from bioinorganic chemistry all the way through to medicine including the clinic. This volume encompasses the breadth of research efforts focused on P450s from structure to function including an appreciation of the diversity and complexity of the biotransformations they catalyze. The introductory Chapter 1, setting the scene, explores the many different levels at which these P450 enzymes (and their respective genes) have diverged in the process of evolution to yield the plethora of enzymes that are now termed "P450 monooxygenases". This broad and unprecedented reactivity of P450 enzymes which contain a heme iron center (most commonly iron(III)protoporphyrin IX) with a deprotonated cysteine side chain providing the fifth ligand to iron, has challenged the "biomimetic community". Indeed, much has been accomplished over the past five decades, e.g., regarding the understanding of the unusual activation of paramagnetic dioxygen by reductive oxygen clea

Interrelations between essential metal ions and human diseases by Astrid Sigel( Book )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"MILS-13 provides an up-to-date review on the relationships between essential metals and human diseases, covering 13 metals and 3 metalloids: The bulk metals sodium, potassium, magnesium, and calcium, plus the trace elements manganese, iron, cobalt, copper, zinc, molybdenum, and selenium, all of which are essential for life. Also covered are chromium, vanadium, nickel, silicon, and arsenic, which have been proposed as being essential for humans in the 2nd half of the last century. However, if at all, they are needed only in ultra-trace amounts, and because of their prevalence in the environment, it has been difficult to prove whether or not they are required. In any case, all these elements are toxic in higher concentrations and therefore, transport and cellular concentrations of at least the essential ones, are tightly controlled; hence, their homeostasis and role for life, including deficiency or overload, and their links to illnesses, including cancer and neurological disorders, are thoroughly discussed. Indeed, it is an old wisdom that metals are indispensable for life. Therefore, volume 13 provides in an authoritative and timely manner in 16 stimulating chapters, written by 29 internationally recognized experts from 7 nations, and supported by more than 2750 references, and over 20 tables and 80 illustrations, many in color, a most up-to-date view on the vibrant research area of the Interrelations between essential metal ions and human diseases"--Publisher's description
