Non Enzymatic Protein Modifications in Health Disease and Ageing

There is increased understanding of the fate of intracellular and extracellular proteins, including the many types of posttranslational modifications that proteins undergo. Among these modifications, non-enzymatic protein modifications play a special role. These are unavoidable products of side reactions of reactive metabolites, and often damage proteins and induce loss of function. Non-Enzymatic Protein Modifications in Health, Diseases and Ageing discusses each type of non-enzymatic protein, both introducing non-enzymatic protein modifications, and reviewing the state of the art, presenting updates and current trends. The book covers various aspects of the subject, including formation and removal of modified proteins, their roles in disease, preventative methods, and possible roles in cellular signalling. Finally, the book not only provides well-established facts, but also discusses current hypotheses and controversies. Provides the basic chemical knowledge necessary to understand non-enzymatic protein modifications, of particular use to researchers looking for an introduction to and overview of the field Combines a systematic chemical introduction to non-enzymatic protein modifications with a review of the state of the art Presents together, types of non-enzymatic protein usually reported and reviewed separately Considers current hypotheses and controversies alongside the facts

Does a longer life mean a healthier life? The number of adults over 65 in the United States is growing, but many may not be aware that they are at greater risk from foodborne diseases and their nutritional needs change as they age. The IOM's Food Forum held a workshop October 29-30, 2009, to discuss food safety and nutrition concerns for older adults.

Mitochondria are crucial organelles for any cell type. Mitochondria take responsibility for not only energy production but also regulation of cell death, also called apoptosis; calcium storage; and heat production. Therefore, mitochondrial disease is implicated in the mode of action of many harmful factors for cells such as drugs and environmental contaminants, dysfunction of the oxygen transport system, malnutrition, intense exercise, and genetic variations. This book presents up-to-date knowledge about mitochondrial disease and its complex relation to some diseases such

Protein Modificomics: From Modifications to Clinical Perspectives comprehensively deals with all of the most recent aspects of post-translational modification (PTM) of proteins, including discussions on diseases involving PTMs, such as Alzheimer's, Huntington's, X-linked spinal muscular atrophy-2, aneurysmal bone cyst, angelman syndrome and OFC10. The book also discusses the role PTMs play in plant physiology and the production of medicinally important primary and secondary metabolites. The understanding of PTMs in plants helps us enhance the production of these metabolites without greatly

Aging is loosely defined as the accumulation of changes in an organism over time. At the cellular level such changes are distinct and multidimensional: DNA replication ceases, cells stop dividing, they become senescent and eventually die. DNA metabolism and chromosomal maintenance, together with protein metabolism are critical in the aging process. The focus of this book is on the role of protein metabolism and homeostasis in aging. An overview is provided of the current knowledge in the area, including protein

Is the emergence of life on Earth the result of a single chance event or combination of lucky accidents, or is it the outcome of biochemical forces woven into the fabric of the universe? And if inevitable, what are these forces, and how do they account not only for the origin of life but also for its evolution toward increasing complexity? Vital Dust is a groundbreaking history of life on Earth, a history that only someone of Chrisitian de Duve's
