The 10th birthday of the International Symposium on Metal Ions in Biology and Medicine should be a great event. The research of new metal compounds with a therapeutic application remains one of the most challenging and resource-intensive steps in inorganic drug discovery processes since the discovery of cisplatin. Every two years, the world's leading specialists meet exchange information on the most recent advances in understanding metals and the part they play in treating some diseases. This book aims to help advance our knowledge of the role of metal ions in a number of fields in biology and medicine. Metal ions play key roles in biology. Many are essential for catalysis, for electron transfer and for the fixation, sensing, and metabolism of gases. Others compete with those essential metal ions or have toxic or pharmacological book is structured around the periodic table and focuses on the control of metal ions in cells. It addresses the molecular aspects of binding, transport. Metallothionins are proteins rich in metal ions found in living systems. The divalent cations Zn 2+, Ca 2+ and Mg 2+ prevent cytotoxicity and in vivo antagonize Cd-induced carcinogenesis. Lack of body iron is common in cancer patients and it is associated with complications in surgery and in animal by:
Metal Ions in Life Sciences links coordination chemistry and biochemistry in their widest sense and thus increases our understanding of the relationship between the chemistry of metals and life processes. The series reflects the interdisciplinary nature of Biological Inorganic Chemistry . Astrid Sigel has studied languages and was an editor of the Metal Ions in Biological Systems series (until Volume 44) and also of the Handbooks on Toxicity of Inorganic Compounds (), on Metals in Clinical and Analytical Chemistry (; both with H. G. Seiler), and on Metalloproteins (; with Ivano Bertini) (Dekker, New York). - Buy Metal Ions in Biology and Medicine: v. 6 book online at best prices in India on Read Metal Ions in Biology and Medicine: v. 6 book reviews & author details and more at Free delivery on qualified : Jose A.

Thirty chapters provide a handbook-like treatment of magnesium and its function in the environment, its bioinorganic chemistry, its role for plants and in animal and human nutrition, its biochemistry and physiology, and its relation to human health and : Hardcover. Metal ions in biology is an ever expanding area in science and medicine involving metal ions in proteins and enzymes, their biosynthesis, catalysis, electron transfer, metal ion trafficking, gene regulation and disease. With research interests in medicinal organometallic chemistry and functional metal bioconjugates, the group is running a full program from inorganic synthesis to cell biology. Together with Kathy Franz he was Chair of the Metals in Medicine Gordon Conference in , a formative experience which led directly to this Thematic by: 4.
