Organic chemistry of nucleic acids by N. K Kochetkov( Book )

9 editions published between 1971 and 1972 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study of nucleic acids is one of the most rapidly developing fields in modern science. The exceptionally important role of the nucleic acids as a key to the understanding of the nature of life is reflected in the enormous number of published works on the subject, including many outstanding monographs and surveys. The pathways of syn thesis and metabolism of nucleic acid, s and the many and varied biological functions of these biopolymers are examined with the utmost detail in the literature. Nearly as much attention has been paid to the macromolecular chemistry of the nucleic acids: elucidation of the size and shape of their molecules, the study of the physicochemical properties of their solutions, and the appropriate methods to be used in such research. The surveys of the chemistry of nucleic acids which have been published so far deal almost entirely with their synthesis and, in particular, with the synthetic chemistry of monomers (nucleosides and nucleotides); less attention has been paid to the synthesis of poly nucleotides. There is yet another highly important aspect of the chemistry of nucleic acids which is still in the formative stage, the study of the reactivity of nucleic acid macromolecules and their components. This can make an important contribution to the deter mination of the structure of these remarkable biopolymers and to the correct understanding of their biological functions."

Regulation of the epithelial sodium proton exchanger, NHE3 by Alexander R Todd( Book )

2 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A prodigious quantity of sodium and water are filtered by the glomerulus daily, 1.7 kg and 180L. The majority is absorbed, across the proximal tubular epithelium back into the circulation, preventing rapid dehydration and death. This occurs through a complicated mechanism involving ion transporters, water channels and enzymes. Fundamental to this life sustaining process is the activity of the epithelial sodium proton exchanger, NHE3. The simple exchange of luminal sodium for cytosolic protons, mediated by NHE3, permits the entrance of filtered sodium into the proximal tubular epithelial cytosol, which is then extruded back into the blood space by the basolateral sodium-potassium ATPase. While much is known about the regulation of this fundamental process, significant gaps in our understanding of the molecular details of NHE3 regulation remain. This dissertation documents insights into the regulation of NHE3 activity. Firstly cell swelling is observed to activate NHE3 activity. The kinetics of this activation is dissected to reveal at least two inactive states of the exchanger. The mechanism of this swelling induced activation is probed and found to be dependent on alterations in the plasma membrane curvature. Secondly the live cell imaging technique, fluorescence recovery after photobleaching (FRAP), is employed to demonstrate that NHE3 is localized to its functional subcellular domain, the apical plasma membrane, through a retention mechanism. This mechanism is shown to be dependent on a physical attachment to the actin cytoskeleton. Finally, the molecular determinants of this attachment to the actin cytoskeleton are assessed. In contrast to the model currently present in the literature, ezrin is demonstrated not to make the functional link between NHE3 and the actin cytoskeleton. However, that ezrin participates in the regulation of NHE3 is confirmed

In the autumn of 1971 F. Hoffmann-La Roche & Co. Ltd in Basel celebrated their 75th anniversary. The company was one of the first in the chemical industry to concentrate from the beginning on pharmaceuticals. Step by step new activi ties were taken up, but all within the frontiers of biology. During the 75 years of Roche the research division has become by far the largest department in the company, with basic research assuming an increasingly important part in it. For this reason Roche cannot but feel a share of res pons i bility towards the many problems raised by biomedical progress. Hence, the idea of celebrating the anniversary along conventional lines could not be seriously entertained. The occasion was to show Roche at work. A special kind of work certainly, breaking away from the daily routine into the sphere offree communi cation with thinking people outside the purview of the company's usual tasks
