Congenital Heart Diseases: The Broken Heart: Clinical by Silke Rickert-Sperling,Robert G. Kelly,David J. Driscoll

By Silke Rickert-Sperling,Robert G. Kelly,David J. Driscoll

This e-book presents entire insights into congenital center sickness from embryonic improvement via to scientific gains, together with human genetics and our present wisdom of the underlying molecular pathways. it's divided into 3 elements: an creation to the improvement of the guts and its vessels, an summary of the molecular pathways affecting the improvement of assorted cardiovascular buildings, and a chief part targeting the different sorts of structural and nonstructural congenital middle ailments, together with their scientific positive aspects, underlying genetic changes and similar animal types and pathways. Taken jointly those chapters, that have been written via and for clinicians and researchers, supply an built-in and state of the art source for all those that are looking to examine extra approximately either the medical features and the genetic and molecular foundation of congenital middle disease.

The Neural Crest in Development and Evolution

A dialogue of the neural crest and neural crest cells, facing their discovery, their embryological and evolutionary origins, their mobile derivatives - in either agnathan and jawed vertebrates or gnathostomes - and the wide subject matters of migration and differentiation in common improvement. The booklet additionally considers what is going incorrect while improvement is misdirected by means of mutations, or by means of publicity of embryos to exogenous brokers resembling medicinal drugs, alcohol, or extra diet A, and contains discussions of tumours and syndromes and beginning defects related to neural crest cells.

Evolving Pathways: Key Themes in Evolutionary Developmental Biology

Evolutionary developmental biology, or 'evo-devo', is the examine of the connection among evolution and improvement. Dealing particularly with the generative mechanisms of organismal shape, evo-devo is going immediately to the center of the developmental beginning of version, the uncooked fabric on which typical choice (and random go with the flow) can paintings.

Biology of Aging

Biology of getting older provides the organic rules that experience ended in a brand new realizing of the factors of getting older and describes how those simple ideas support one to appreciate the human adventure of organic getting older, durability, and age-related disorder. meant for undergraduate biology scholars, it describes how the speed of organic getting older is measured; explores the mechanisms underlying mobile getting older; discusses the genetic pathways that impact sturdiness in a number of organisms; outlines the traditional age-related adjustments and the sensible decline that happens in physiological platforms over the lifespan; and considers the consequences of modulating the speed of getting older and sturdiness.
