By John T. Romeo, Ragal Ibrahim, Luc Varin and Vincenzo De Luca (Eds.)

The prior decade has obvious significant advances within the cloning of genes encoding enzymes of plant secondary metabolism. This has been additional more suitable by means of the hot undertaking at the sequencing of the Arabidopsis genome. those advancements give you the molecular genetic foundation to deal with the query of the Evolution of Metabolic Pathways . This quantity presents in-depth experiences of our present wisdom at the evolutionary beginning of plant secondary metabolites and the enzymes concerned about their biosynthesis. The chapters disguise 5 significant themes: 1. position of secondary metabolites in evolution; 2. Evolutionary origins of polyketides and terpenes; three. Roles of oxidative reactions within the evolution of secondary metabolism; four. Evolutionary starting place of substitution reactions: acylation, glycosylation and methylation; and five. Biochemistry and molecular biology of brassinosteroids.

Current Topics in Developmental Biology (Volume 79)

This serial presents a complete survey of the foremost issues within the box of developmental biology. those volumes are worthwhile to researchers in animal and plant improvement, in addition to to scholars and pros who wish an advent to mobile and molecular mechanisms of improvement. The sequence has lately handed its 30-year mark, making it the longest-running discussion board for modern concerns in developmental biology.

Bacteriophages. Biology and Applns

In keeping with the emergence of pathogenic micro organism that can't be taken care of with present antibiotics, many researchers are revisiting using bacteriophages, or phages, to struggle multidrug-resistant micro organism. Bacteriophage as Antibiotics: Molecular Biology and purposes offers exceptional, finished info on bacteriophages and their purposes, corresponding to phage treatment.
