Calcium, Oxygen Radicals and Cellular Damage (Society for by C. J. Duncan

By C. J. Duncan

This quantity documents the complaints of a gathering held by means of the Society for Experimental Biology that tried to figure out no matter if there are universal mechanisms of mobile harm and to discover the ways that calcium and oxygen radicals may well have interaction to generate the wear and tear.

Plant Cell Death Processes

Programmed phone dying is a typical development of progress and improvement in either animals and crops. besides the fact that, programmed mobile loss of life and comparable strategies are usually not as more often than not famous as relevant to plant progress. this can be altering speedy and is turning into extra of a spotlight of in depth study. This edited paintings will convey below one disguise contemporary studies of programmed mobile loss of life, apoptosis and senescence.

Evolutionary Developmental Biology

Even supposing evolutionary developmental biology is a brand new box, its origins lie within the final century; the quest for connections among embryonic improvement (ontogeny) and evolutionary swap (phylogeny) has been a protracted one. Evolutionary developmental biology is despite the fact that greater than only a fusion of the fields of developmental and evolutionary biology.

Evolutionary Developmental Biology of Invertebrates 3: Ecdysozoa I: Non-Tetraconata

This multi-author, six-volume paintings summarizes our present wisdom at the developmental biology of all significant invertebrate animal phyla. the most facets of cleavage, embryogenesis, organogenesis and gene expression are mentioned in an evolutionary framework. every one bankruptcy provides an in-depth but concise review of either classical and up to date literature, supplemented via quite a few colour illustrations and micrographs of a given animal workforce.

Sample text

Such a low [Ca2+]i is maintained through the concerted action of Ca2+-translocases present in the mitochondrial, endoplasmic reticular, and the plasma membrane (Carafoli, 1987) and by Ca2+ sequestration into the nucleus as more recently proposed (Nicotera et al, 1989a; 1990) (Fig. 2). The plasma membrane translocases (which are Ca2+-ATPases in liver cells and erythrocytes, and a Na + /Ca 2+ exchanger in excitable tissues) balances the passive influx of Ca 2+ from the extracellular environment, and the Ca2+-translocating activities of mitochondria, endoplasmic reticulum, and perhaps also liver cell nuclei, contribute to the low [Ca2+ ]i?
