Animal Anatomy on File (Facts on File Science Library) by Diagram Group

By Diagram Group

A e-book that includes 250 photo-copiable charts and diagrams of the main divisions of the animal country from the best, the sponges, to the main complicated, guy. The diagramatic plates illustrate the exterior shape, the skeleton, numerous physique platforms, muscle tissues, and significant organs, however the insurance varies in line with animal. for example, there are 2 diagrams (the exterior shape and the skeleton) for the bird, yet 14 for the human animal. nearly 50 species of animals are illustrated, together with the bat, cat, puppy, dolphin, pigeon, kangaroo, and pig. Biology scholars doing stories will locate the publication valuable. paintings scholars additionally may well locate it worthwhile after they want a relatively transparent exterior view of a selected animal.

Biophysical Thermodynamics of Intracellular Processes: Molecular Machines of the Living Cell

The most aim of this booklet is to explain in actual phrases the unusual good points of "machines" having molecular dimensions that play the significant function within the most vital organic approaches, viz. , strength transduction and enzyme catalysis. due to the fact that those molecular engines paintings with thermal, chemical, and mechanical strength, the perfect framework to debate them comes from thermodynamics and chemical kinetics.

The Equine Distal Limb: An Atlas of Clinical Anatomy and Comparative Imaging

Jean-Marie Denoix is the world’s best equine musculoskeletal method anatomist and has turn into one of many most advantageous equine diagnostic ultrasonographers. there's consequently not anyone higher to bring together a reference atlas of the scientific anatomy of the foot, pastern and fetlock, correlated with pictures acquired by way of radiography, diagnostic ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging.

Platelets: Receptors, Adhesion, Secretion Part B

This quantity features a accomplished selection of equipment for the isolation of platelet membranes, subcellular organelles, the cytoskeleton, and for the assay and purification of platelet receptors. Key positive aspects* Platelets are mobile components with the top density of receptors in step with membrane floor sector focused on binding of adhesive molecules, clotting, enzymes, and vasoactive amines* Platelets are crucial for the arrest of bleeding and for formation of intravascular thrombi contributing to center assaults, strokes, and disseminated intravascular coagulation, and are concerned about immune advanced sickness* Platelets are necessary for learning the techniques of telephone adhesion, neurotransmitter uptake, stimulus-response coupling, together with sign transduction and secretion

Advances in Morphometrics

This quantity is predicated at the NATO complex research Institute, "Advances in Mor­ phometries" held in eleven Ciocco, Tuscany, Italy from July 18-30, 1993, and directed via Leslie F. Marcus. The "Advances in Morphometries" ASI used to be marketed in Nature and a couple of expert journals. bulletins have been despatched to suitable associations and departments during the international.

It is important to have methods by which the cellular concentrations of calmodulin may be accurately determined. One such method utilizes the ability of calmodulin to stimulate the activity of receptor enzymes in a Ca2+-dependent manner. Although any of the calmodulin-dependent enzymes is suitable, the most widely used appears to be a Ca2+-dependent phosphodiesterase, probably because the enzyme was the first demonstrated to require calmodulin for full activity,5 and its mechanism of stimulation by calmodulin has been well characterized.
