Biochemistry of differentiation and morphogenesis : 33. Colloquium der Gesellschaft für Biologische Chemie, 25.-27. März 1982 in Mosbach/Baden by Gesellschaft für Biologische Chemie( Book )

2 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The topic of this Mosbach Colloquium was meant as a question to begin with. When I started to study differentiation and morphogenesis in Volvox I hoped for a straightforward answer along prepared groove- only to find out that also here things follow Murphy's Law: they were much more complicated than expected! Succour had to be sought. Thus, the idea arose to put this question before a board of experts. Experience would have warned any ex-service man never to utter an idea or else you would be made responsible, and it came as it had to come: I was made impressario of this gremium; I had to assemble the experts. These Proceedings contain their expertise. I cannot even say that I biased it by my picking. In the beginning I aimed at setting different accents by inclination and force of habit. Then, by trial and error, by advice and declination, the programme shaped itself. It eventually gained momentum of which also the size of this volume is indicative. In this volume are printed all the papers presented - with two regret­ ted exceptions - but not the sometimes lively discussion, which clari­ fied and pruned here and there. It would just have made the size too unwieldy. Differentiation and morphogenesis start with the expression of genes. The development programme reels off the genome and is regulated by the position of the appropriate genes. Their structure is in the focus of gene biochemistry since the decisive tools have become available
Protein structure and protein engineering by Gesellschaft für Biologische Chemie( Book )

6 editions published between 1988 and 2013 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The main topic of this 39th Mosbacher Colloquium is concerned with techniques of protein engineering, examples of application, and the analysis and determination of protein structure, their stability and flexibility. Physicochemical aspects of hydrophobic interactions, folding dynamics, energy and entropy changes during conformational changes of peptide or protein chains, and the molecular events during catalytic processes, as well as ligand binding of a given enzyme are comprehensively treated. Furthermore, the implications for designing new biologically active peptides and synthetic antibodies are discussed

Molecular mechanisms of hormone action by Gesellschaft für Biologische Chemie( Book )

3 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recent years have seen tremendous progress in the field of hormone action and consequent signal transduction. The 40th Colloquium Mosbach was devoted to the discussion of results concerning the molecular process of hormone action, especially the processes following hormone binding to the corresponding receptors. Structural and functional aspects of steroid hormone receptors as well as ion-channel-coupled and enzyme-linked receptors were treated in detail. Particular interest focussed on the latest results concerning transcriptional control, protein phosphorylation, the role of G-Proteins, oncogene proteins, involvement of phospholipases and the regulation of ion channels
Molecular basis of viral and microbial pathogenesis : 38. Colloquium der Gesellschaft für Biologische Chemie, 9.-11. April 1987 in Mosbach/Baden ; edited by R. Rott and W. Goebel by Gesellschaft für Biologische Chemie( Book )

2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Elucidation of the mechanisms of pathogenesis underlying the diseases caused by viruses and bacteria has fascinated scientists for many years in two ways. Firstly, these pathogenic agents represent relatively sim­ ple biological systems for the study of basic biological processes such as replication, gene regulation, genetic variability and host-pathogen interactions. Secondly, process in this field is valuable in a practi­ cal sence, since it can help in the control of these diseases. The avail­ ability of new genetic and immunological techniques, especially recom­ binant DNA methods and monoclonal antibody technology, has provided powerful tools for unravelling the genetic, biochemical and immunologi­ cal basis of viral and microbial pathogenesis. Molecular cloning has allowed the isolation of single genes or groups of genes related to phenotypes which appear to be immunologically important for pathogene­ sis. The specific elimination of such genes from the complex genomes of the pathogens can now be achieved with similar genetic techniques. These genetic studies have provided additional information on the role played by specific phenotypic traits in pathogenesis, especially when combined with relevant animal model systems. Furthermore, the struc­ tural analysis of important virulence factors and surface antigens may allow the prediction of antigenic domains suitable for the development of new vaccines. The 38th Mosbacher Colloquium focuses on the molecular basis of viral and microbial pathogenesis. The virology part begins with the well­ studied plant viroids. The unusual structure of their genome, as well as knowledge about their replication and pathogenicity, are presented
The molecular basis of bacterial metabolism by Gesellschaft für Biologische Chemie( Book )

3 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is not a comprehensive account of the Molecular Basis of Bacterial Metabolism, but rather a presentation of new, exciting progress on sometimes exotic reactions of specifically bacterial, mainly anaerobic metabolism. The topics of the 17 contributions reach from the biochemistry of methanogenesis, via anaerobic radical reactions, metal biochemistry in hydrogen and nitrogen metabolism, conversions of light- and redox energy, to the regulation of metabolic adaptation, and the attempts to bioengineer novel pathways for the degradation of xenobiotica. These proceedings represent a highly progressive field of overlapping disciplines, comprising microbiology and molecular genetics, chemistry of biomimetic interest, and biophysics. The reader will gain insight into the impact modern technologies have on microbiological research today

Glyco- and cellbiology : biosynthesis, transport, and function of glycoconjugates : 44. Colloquium der Gesellschaft für Biologische Chemie 22.-24. April 1993 in Mosbach/Baden by Gesellschaft für Biologische Chemie( Book )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Understanding the biological role of the diverse oligosaccharides of glycoproteins and glycolipids has been a major challenge in cell biology. Glycosylation is an essential step during molecular recognition and is involved in protein folding, sorting, targeting and intracellular translocation. Further, glycoproteins of the cell membrane play a major role in cell adhesion, hormone function, antibody action and signal mediation. Current knowledge of the molecular and cellular mechanisms involved in these processes is presented
The cytoskeleton by Gesellschaft für Biologische Chemie( Book )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The cytoskeleton is the fabric and the machinery of the cell. It defines shape and polarity, and it allows the cells to move, to transport material and to divide. The major networking elements are the microfilaments, microtubules and intermediate filaments. They interact with a host of cell components, from small peptides to giant proteins. Many have recently become accessible for analysis by protein and DNA technology. Some protein structures have now been solved by crystallography and NMR, giving us a glimpse of the mechanisms of motility at the molecular level. The interplay of the machinery can be visualized in real time by modern video microscopy. This book gives a current overview of the players and how they interact to generate cell structure and dynamics

Integration and excision of DNA molecules : 28. Colloquium der Gesellschaft für Biologische Chemie, 21.-23. April in Mosbach/Baden by Gesellschaft für Biologische Chemie( Book )

3 editions published in 1978 in English and German and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The topic of this years' ̃osbach Colloquium was DNA integration. We have tried to bring together experts from different fields of research who are studying natural processes by which DNA molecules from differ­ ent sources are linked. It has been known for a long time that such linkage occurs between the chromosomes of bacteriophages and plasmids on the one hand and the chromosome of the bacterial host on the other. This process has been especially well studied in bacteriophage A. Since it is controlled in a complicated way, we began with a lecture by M. ptashne on these regulatory processes. H. Nash described the inte­ gration of bacteriophage A into the bacterial chromosome. To put this site-specific process into perspective, G. Mosig lectured on genetic recombination in prokaryotes in general and K. Murray described the use of bacteriophage A as an artificial vector for genetic engineering. A different kind of bacteriophage integration is shown by bacteriophage Mu, which is much less specific in its choice of an integration site than A. The properties of this phage were described by P. van de Putte
Inhibitors, tools in cell research by Gesellschaft für Biologische Chemie( Book )

3 editions published in 1969 in English and German and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The scope of the 20th Mosbach Colloquium may be best illustrated by the following notes sent to the speakers when the colloquium was organized. "1) The application of inhibitors in cell biology has led to decisive insight into the organisation of cellular units. The subject should be treated against a background of current aspects of cell biology. In some areas of research, a fairly complete picture of the functions and cooperative interactions of the units has already emerged. We will discuss mainly these areas. 2) At this colloquium we want to contribute illustrations of the useful application of inhibitors to biological problems. Due to limited knowledge, inhibitors are sometimes incorrectly employed. This applies both to the planning of investigations and to the con· clusions drawn ("use of inhibitors by uninhibited workers"). 3) Inhibitors themselves are interesting substances and their mechanisms of action constitute fascinating problems." The colloquium has been subdivided into five sections. The known chemical structures of the inhibitors discussed are given in an Appendix. We gratefully appreciate the cooperation of the speakers. To a great extent, they managed the coordination of contributions to each of the five subdivisions. We regret that no contributors from Eastern Europe were able to participate
The immune system by Fritz Melchers( Book )

2 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The cells of the immune system generate a large variety of binding sites which differ in their binding specificities and can therefore react specifically with a large variety of ligands. These binding sites are part of receptor molecules, enabling the system to react to the universe of antigens. The classical antigen receptor is the antibody molecule, and accord­ ingly the first session of this colloquium deals with a classical sub­ ject, namely antibody structure. Dramatic recent advances in this field make it possible to interrelate primary and three-dimensional struc­ ture both to each other and to function, i.e. the binding of antigen and possible reactions occurring in the antibody molecule upon antigen binding. The latter point is of particular interest since it may be relevant not only for effector functions of antibodies such as the binding of complement, but also for the triggering of a lymphocyte through its antibody receptor for antigen

Molecular aspects of inflammation by H Sies( Book )

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Understanding the molecular basis of complex biological processes has been amajor goal of biological chemistry from early on. Inflammation is such one entitiy, and recent years have seen exciting progress in the understanding of molecuar interactions; there has been a long way from dolor, rubor, calor and tumor as a fundamental description of the phenomenon tocurrent knowlegde on e.g. the control of the respiratory burst of the granulocyte, the atomic details of protease regulation, or the interaction of cytokines. The book is organized in the order of increasing complexity, starting out with the key phenomena of the inflammatory response and its modulation by cytokines to intravascular events and shock and sepsis; thus, the current attemptsto apply basic knowledge on mediators of inflam- mation to the clinical situation were also considered
