The Many Faces Of Rna by D. S. Eggleston


Original Title: The Many Faces Of Rna

The Many Faces of RNA is the subject for the eighth SmithKline Beecham Pharmaceuticals Research Symposia. It highlights a rapidly developing area of scientific investigation. The style and format are deliberately designed to promote in-depth presentations and discussions and to facilitate the forging of collaborations between academic and industrial partners. This symposium focuses on several of the many fundamental, advancing strategies for exploring RNA and its functions. It emphasizes the interplay between biology, chemistry, genomics, and molecular biology which is leading to exciting new insights and avenues of investigation. The book explores RNA as a therapeutic target, RNA as a tool, RNA and its interactions, along with chemical, computational, and structural investigations.

Rna Infrastructure And Networks by Lesley J. Collins


Original Title: Rna Infrastructure And Networks

RNAs form complexes with proteins and other RNAs. The RNA‐infrastructure represents the spatiotemporal interaction of these proteins and RNAs in a cell‐wide network. RNA Infrastructure and Networks brings together these ideas to illustrate the scope of RNA‐based biology, and how connecting RNA mechanisms is a powerful tool to investigate regulatory pathways. This book is but a taste of the wide range of RNA‐based mechanisms that connect in the RNA infrastructure.

The Many Faces Of Osteoarthritis by Vincent C. Hascall


Original Title: The Many Faces Of Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is the most common joint pathology which primarily affects the older population. The disease is characterized by unique pathological changes in some synovial joints, predominantly affecting the articular cartilage, but also entire joints, including the synovial tissue and subchondral bone. The remarkable growth of research on normal and abnormal biology of tissues in the articulating joint, including the application of novel molecular biological approaches and new imaging techniques, is reflected in this volume. It describes the current state of knowledge and helps to further understand the etiopathology of osteoarthritis, hopefully leading to early detection of the disease and novel treatment modalities. The volume contains contributions and discussions from a select group of investigators, all experts in this field, who met at the conference "The Many Faces of Osteoarthritis", held in June 2001 at Lake Tahoe, to acknowledge Klaus E. Kuettner and his contributions to osteoarthritis...

Operators And Promoters by Harrison G. Echols


Original Title: Operators And Promoters

During the past four decades, molecular biology has dominated the life sciences. Curiously, no participant in this scientific revolution has previously attempted a book-length history of the development of this powerful science. Harrison ("Hatch") Echols provides such an account in Operators and Promoters. A gifted molecular biologist and talented raconteur, Echols relates the intellectual history of the most influential discoveries in molecular biology from his own experiences. Echols joins his vast knowledge of biology with personal interviews of the principal operators and promoters in the field to convey a captivating side of science--specifically, how the personalities of scientists and their competitive and collaborative relations affect new ideas and discoveries. The author reveals how logic and order often arise only in hindsight from the chaos of discovery; eventual solutions often come from experiments performed for entirely different reasons. Echols also shares his deep-seated feelings for the science itself, communicating his admiration, even awe, for the purity and simplicity with which life systems are organized. This gripping insider's account of the first fifty years of molecular biology ties together the biological questions with the scientific solutions of the people who established the field. It will appeal not only to students and those interested in the development of the discipline, but to anyone intrigued by the human side of science and the process of scientific inquiry and discovery.

Rna Binding Antibiotics by Renée Schroeder


Original Title: Rna Binding Antibiotics

The past several years have seen a fundamental change in our perception of RNA. RNA was once regarded as a passive mediator of genetic information in mRNA and tRNA or as a mere scaffold for proteins in the ribosome. But the discovery of catalytic RNA, the development of SELEX, and dramatic improvements in RNA structure analysis have rather demonstrated that RNA is a highly versatile and dynamic molecule. Our increased understanding of the important role RNA plays in most, if not all, cellular processes has lead to the awareness that RNA represents a potential and prominent target for therapeutic intervention. On one hand, nature has "invented" an innumerable amount of small compounds which bind to RNA and modulate its function, on the other hand, the design and preparation of RNA molecules with defined properties is now within reach. This volume covers RNAs with known or proposed catalytic activity or functional importance whose behavior is affected by antibiotics. These include the peptidyl transferase and the decoding activities of the ribosome and the cleavage activities of several catalytic RNAs. Detailed discussion of the wide-spread effects of the tetracyclines, of the peptide antibiotic viomycin and of bleomycin on RNAs are presented. SELEX has provided a wealth of antibiotic-binding RNAs which are amenable to NMR structure determination. Detailed biophysical analyses on antibiotic-RNA interactions, and the design and synthesis of novel aminoglycosides suggest strategies for the pharmaceutical exploitation of RNA-binding drugs. On the verge of losing the battle against bacteria, which are acquiring resistance genes against all used antibiotics, it is mandatory to find new therapeutics. RNA-binding antibiotics are not only therapeutically valuable, they play a major role in the deciphering of RNA function and stimulate evolutionary thoughts about the origin of life.
