Non Enzymatic Protein Modifications in Health Disease and Ageing Book Review:

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

Molecular Basis and Emerging Strategies for Anti aging Interventions Book Review:

This book describes the nature of aging, age-related disorders, and the molecular principles of emerging strategies for anti-aging interventions, while also discussing the discovery of targets for geroprotective drugs. Although significant medical advances in the treatment and eradication of life-threatening conditions such as cardiovascular and infectious disease have been made over the past five decades, the prevalence of age-related disorders still remains high in older populations. Intervening into aging is the next frontier in contemporary medicine, and will be of increasing importance over time, as other sources of poor health are combated more and more successfully. Given the universal interest in anti-aging strategies, the book will appeal to a very broad audience. It addresses a diverse range of anti-aging interventions – including stem cells, autophagy, senolytics, anti-inflammatory methods, and telomerase induction – that will be of interest to scientists and researchers from various disciplines in the life sciences.

Protein Metabolism and Homeostasis in Aging Book Review:

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 synthesis, accuracy and repair, post-translational modifications, degradation and turnover, and how they define and influence aging. The chapters mainly focus on well-characterised factors and pathways, but new areas are also presented, where associations with aging are just being elucidated by current experimental data. Protein turnover, the balance between protein synthesis and protein degradation are carefully maintained in healthy cells. Chapters 1 and 2 illustrate that aging cells are characterised by alterations in the rate, level and accuracy of protein synthesis compared to young ones, and that mRNA translation, essential for cell growth and survival, is controlled at multiple levels. The theory that growth and somatic maintenance are believed to be antagonistic processes is described in Chapter 3: inhibition of protein synthesis results in decreased rates of growth and development, but also confers an extension of lifespan, as shown for example by the effects of dietary restriction in various models organisms.

Protein Modificomics Book Review:

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 altering the genome, providing robust eukaryotic systems for the production and isolation of desired products without considerable downstream and isolation processes. Provides thorough insights into the post translational modifications (PTMs) of proteins in both the plant and animal kingdom Presents diagrammatic representations of various protein modification and estimation mechanisms in four-color Includes coverage of diseases involving post translational modifications

Examining the Causal Relationship Between Genes Epigenetics and Human Health Book Review:

For as much as we know about DNA and gene expression, many more mysteries remain to be solved. Epigenetics and epigenomics seek to study heritable modifications in gene expression that do not involve underlying DNA sequences to further human health changes. Examining the Causal Relationship Between Genes, Epigenetics, and Human Health provides innovative research methods and applications of chemical activation or deactivation of genes without altering the original DNA sequence. While highlighting topics including gene expression, personalized medicine, and public policy, this book is ideal for researchers, geneticists, biologists, medical professionals, students, and academics seeking current research on the expanding fields of genomics, epigenomics, proteomics, pharmacogenomics, and genome-wide association studies.

Mind in Aging Book Review:

Herein, we present a monograph entitled “Mind in Aging” for young scientists who wish to study traditional Japanese Kampo medicine. This monograph describes more than two decades of our research and represents the work of many young scientists who dedicated their time to accomplish this program. We are sincerely grateful to these participants, and the names of each are listed in the chapter acknowledgments. Life-threatening diseases, such as cancer, heart disease, autoimmune disease, and obesity will hopefully be eliminated sometime in the relatively near future. However, mysteries and diseases of the mind will likely remain unsolved for a longer time. Daily activities of learning and memory retrieval, thinking and thought, and perception all stimulate a feeling of mind. Without learning and memory, thinking and thought, as well as perception, are not enough to recognize self-existence and will not stimulate a feeling of mind. For the past several decades, we have studied learning and memory, thinking and thought, and the sensibility of perception in experimental animals in order to unlock the mysteries of the mind, particularly with regard to aging.
