By Robert C. Smart, Ernest Hodgson
An crucial source for graduate scholars, educational and commercial toxicologists, and environmental healthiness scientists and professionals
Over the process thirty years and 3 versions, Introduction to Biochemical Toxicology has been a huge resource for insurance of the continuing quest to outline the biochemical, mobile, and molecular occasions triggered via toxicants on the mobile and organismic degrees. Now, because the rules and strategies of molecular and mobile biology in addition to genomic sciences play an ever expanding function in mechanistic toxicology, major adjustments were made to the publication, leading to this significant new edition-now titled Molecular and Biochemical Toxicology, Fourth Edition.
Much greater than an introductory textual content, this important new version has been thoroughly revised to supply well timed and thorough insurance of the underlying biochemical, molecular, and mobile mechanisms in which toxicants produce their opposed results. Toxicological matters are lined from the molecule to the cellphone to the organ point. advanced equipment utilized in toxicology also are defined in a simple, easy-to-understand variety. extra gains of this new version include:
- New chapters that discover the interface among toxicology and genomic sciences, together with: bioinformatics, proteomics, metabolomics, and toxicogenomics
- Increased emphasis on constitution, mechanism, and law of xenobiotic metabolizing enzymes, toxicogenetics, and xenobiotic transporters
- Additional new chapters on: molecular epidemiology and genetic susceptibility, DNA harm and mutagenesis, DNA fix, mechanisms of cellphone loss of life, mitochondrial disorder, metals, reproductive toxicology, developmental toxicology, and reactive oxygen/metabolites and toxicity
Molecular and Biochemical Toxicology, Fourth variation publications graduate scholars, toxicologists, and environmental healthiness pros throughout the rules of molecular and biochemical toxicology and the advanced mechanisms of toxicity. even if it is utilized in the school room or in undefined, study, or academia, this booklet is key for a person drawn to knowing the molecular mechanisms during which toxicants produce opposed results
