Fibronectins by Richard O Hynes( )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fibronectins comprise a class of high molecular weight glycoproteins present both in extracellular matrices and in soluble form in body fluids. Although they have been studied for about forty years, their real significance emerged only during the past decade. Intensive research has focused on their role in platelet function, cell migration, the cytoskeleton, reticuloendothelial function, and on alterations in fibronectin distribution during development and disease. Fibronectins have emerged as glycoproteins with a very interesting set of properties generally involving adhesion of cells to cells or to extracellular material. In more recent years, the complete sequences of several fibronectin molecules and their genes were determined, the relation between structure and function was understood and much has been learned about cell surface receptors for fibronectins and other adhesive ligands. Having been at the forefront of all these exciting developments, the author has synthesized the entire field and with all the latest information at hand for the first time given it a clear perspective
Linear aggregation theory in cell biology by Terrell L Hill( )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the past few decades we have witnessed an era of remarkable growth in the field of molecular biology. In 1950 very little was known ofthe chemical constitution of biological systems, the manner in which information was transmitted from one organism to another, or the extent to which the chemical basis oflife is unified. The picture today is dramatically different. We have an almost bewildering variety of information detailing many different aspects of life at the molecular level. These great advances have brought with them some breathtaking insights into the molecular mechanisms used by nature for replicating, distributing, and modifying biological information. We have learned a great deal about the chemical and physical nature of the macromo­ lecular nucleic acids and proteins, and the manner in which carbohydrates, lipids, and smaller molecules work together to provide the molecular setting ofliving systems. It might be said that these few decades have replaced a near vacuum of information with a very large surplus. It is in the context ofthis flood of information that this series of monographs on molecular biology has been organized. The idea is to bring together in one place, between the covers of one book, a concise assessment of the state of the subject in a well-defined field. This will enable the reader to get a sense of historical perspective-what is known about the field today-and a descrip­ tion of the frontiers of research where our knowledge is increasing steadily

Chromatin by K. E Van Holde( )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contemporary views on the structure and function of chromatin are presented and the history of the development of these ideas as well as the nature of the nucleic acid and protein components of chromatin are reviewed. The structure of chromatin is studied at several levels, and its modes of transcription and replication are analyzed. Chromatin provides researchers with a critical evaluation of current knowledge. It combines much information that has never before been assembled, and evaluates and interrelates it in a critical way. This has not been done before so that readers are not only provided with an overview, but with extensive references to the literature (there are about 2000 references in all)
Cooperativity theory in biochemistry : steady-state and equilibrium systems by Terrell L Hill( )

1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the past few decades we have witnessed an era of remarkable growth in the field of molecular biology. In 1950 very little was known of the chemical constitution of biological systems, the manner in which information was trans­ mitted from one organism to another, or the extent to which the chemical basis of life is unified. The picture today is dramatically different. We have an almost bewildering variety of information detailing many different aspects of life at the molecular level. These great advances have brought with them some breath-taking insights into the molecular mechanisms used by nature for rep­ licating, distributing and modifying biological information. We have learned a great deal about the chemical and physical nature of the macromolecular nucleic acids and proteins, and the manner in which carbohydrates, lipids and smaller molecules work together to provide the molecular setting of living sys­ tems.

Zu Fuß nach Rom : vom Schwarzwald zu den Gräbern der Apostel Petrus und Paulus ; ein spirituelles und sportliches Abenteuer by Alexander Rich( )

1 edition published in 2011 in German and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alexander Rich hat seinen Jugendtraum verwirklicht. Anfang der 1960er Jahre erlebte er als Mitglied einer Freiburger Jugendgruppe, wie seine älteren Gruppenleiter mit dem Fahrrad nach Rom fuhren. Gerne wäre er einmal dabei gewesen, aber Alter, Zeit und Geldmangel ließen dies nicht zu. Damals fasste er den festen Vorsatz, einmal zu Fuß nach Rom zu pilgern. Jetzt ist sein Wunsch in Erfüllung gegangen. Von Feldberg-Falkau brach er nach einer vorausgegangenen Pilgersegnung am 10. Mai 2010 auf. Sein Weg ging den Schwarzwald hinunter in die Schweiz. Dort auf dem schweizerischen Jakobsweg bis nach Lausanne, wo sich der Jakobsweg mit der Via Francigena, einem Pilgerweg von Canterbury nach Rom, kreuzt. Nun der Via Francigena folgend ging sein Pilgerweg weiter über den Pass des großen St. Bernhard, ins Aostatal. Dann durch die Po-Ebene, über den Apennin, durch die Toskana und das Latium bis nach Rom. Am 7. Juli 2010 erreichte er nach 1481 Kilometern die heilige Stadt. Seine Pilgerreise beendete er mit einem Besuch des Petersdomes, der Apostelgräber des hl. Petrus und des hl. Paulus, der heiligen Messfeier und einer Papstaudienz. Seine Pilgereise wurde für ihn zu einer tiefen und unersetzlichen Erfahrung und zu einem spirituellen und sportlichen Abenteuer auf der Suche nach sich selbst und nach Gott. Heiter, aber auch anrührend erzählt er in seinem Buch von seinen wunderbaren Begegnungen mit Gott, Menschen, Landschaften und Geschichte
