New and Published Books

  1. The Gene, the Clinic, and the Family

    Diagnosing Dysmorphology, Reviving Medical Dominance

    By Joanna Latimer

    Series: Genetics and Society

    While some theorists argue that medicine is caught in a relentless process of ‘geneticization’ and others offer a thesis of biomedicalization, there is still little research that explores how these effects are accomplished in practice. Joanna Latimer, whose groundbreaking ethnography on acute...

  2. Lipid Oxidation in Health and Disease

    Edited by Corinne M. Spickett, Henry Jay Forman

    Series: Oxidative Stress and Disease

    Oxidative modification of lipids and phospholipids—including radical damage, halogenation, and nitration—result in significant changes to the chemical properties of the molecules, which in turn have a major effect on their biochemical functions. Lipid oxidation has long been regarded as a...

  3. Cells, Forces, and the Microenvironment

    Edited by Charles M. Cuerrier, Andrew E. Pelling

    With the recent development of new experimental approaches and methodologies, it is becoming clear that cells and tissues are not regulated by biochemical signals alone. Indeed, physical cues arising in the biological microenvironment are directly coupled to the biochemical regulation of living...

  4. Mechanobiology of the Endothelium

    Edited by Helim Aranda-Espinoza

    The endothelium is an excellent example of where biology meets physics and engineering. It must convert mechanical forces into chemical signals to maintain homeostasis. It also controls the immune response, drug delivery through the vasculature, and cancer metastasis. Basic understanding of these...

  5. Gene Control

    2nd Edition

    By David Latchman

    The new edition of Gene Control has been updated to include significant advances in the roles of the epigenome and regulatory RNAs in gene regulation. The chapter structure remains the same: the first part consists of pairs of chapters that explain the mechanisms involved and how they regulate gene...

  6. Viking DNA

    The Wirral and West Lancashire Project

    By Stephen E. Harding, Mark Jobling, Turi King

    This book details a genetic survey that has taken place focusing on men from old families from Wirral and West Lancashire. These 'Viking hot spots' in North West England exhibit many archaeological and historical features proving them to have had a clear Viking presence. The book explains—with the...

  7. How Enzymes Work

    From Structure to Function

    Edited by Haruo Suzuki

    For a long time, enzymes have been studied by measuring their activity, which has led to the advancement of "enzyme kinetics." In recent years, the mechanism of enzyme reaction has been explained in detail on the basis of the 3D structure. Genetic engineering and the 3D structural analysis of...

  8. Endothelial Cell Plasticity in the Normal and Injured Central Nervous System

    Edited by Esperanza Meléndez Herrera, Bryan V. Phillips-Farfán, Gabriel Gutiérrez Ospina

    This book highlights the importance of endothelial cells as key players in the functioning of the nervous system under both normal and pathological conditions. The book demonstrates that endothelial cells are an essential and dynamic cell population in the central nervous system, with multiple and...

  10. The Routledge International Handbook of Biosocial Criminology

    Edited by Matt DeLisi, Michael G Vaughn

    Series: Routledge International Handbooks

    Biosocial criminology is an interdisciplinary field that aims to explain crime and antisocial behavior by exploring both biological factors and environmental factors. Since the mapping of the human genome, scientists have been able to study the biosocial causes of human behaviour with the greatest...
