    In response to hyperosmotic shock, cells of the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae lose up to 50% of their volume. This drastic decrease in cell size results in excess plasma membrane, which forms large infoldings that must be quickly removed. How these plasma membrane invaginations are resolved to restore the cell surface is not well understood. We show that hyperosmotic shock activates calcineurin, the Ca2+/calmodulin-dependent protein phosphatase, leading to restoration of normal membrane morphology. During hyperosmotic stress, actin patches (sites of endocytosis) become depolarized; we find that under these conditions calcineurin accumulates at sites of polarized growth and promotes actin patch repolarization. Hyperosmotic stress causes calcineurin to bind to the yeast synaptojanin Inp53/Sjl3 and dephosphorylate its proline rich tail. Dephosphorylation by calcineurin activates Inp53, which in turn dephosphorylates PI(4,5)P2 at the plasma membrane and promotes repolarization of the actin cytoskeleton. Consistently, cells lacking the partially redundant synaptojanins Inp51/Sjl1 and Inp52/Sjl2 require calcineurin for growth even in the absence of hyperosmotic stress, and display abnormal plasma membrane morphology when calcineurin activation of Inp53 is blocked. Finally, we find that calcineurin binding to Inp53 stimulates its association with the yeast amphiphysin Rvs167, suggesting model where calcineurin stimulates Inp53 and Rvs167 mediated membrane scission, promoting recovery from excess membrane stress and allowing resumption of polarized growth. In neurons, periods of intense synaptic vesicle release also result in excess membrane, and calcineurin stimulates association of synaptojanin with amphiphysin to promote synaptic vesicle endocytosis. Our findings in yeast suggest that stimulation of endocytic complex formation by Ca2+/calcineurin is a fundamental and conserved feature of the eukaryotic response to excess plasma membrane.

    Abstract : Voltage-gated calcium channels are an important route of calcium entry into cells and are essential for converting electrical activity into biochemical events. In neurons these channels are vital for synaptic vesicle release and have been implicated in almost every activity-dependent process including survival, dendritic arborization, synaptic plasticity, and gene expression. One of the ways in which these channels regulate cellular behavior is by regulating gene expression but the mechanisms that link calcium channels to the transcription machinery are not well understood. In this thesis I show that a C-terminal fragment of CaV1.2, an L-type voltage-gated calcium channel, translocates to the nucleus and regulates transcription. I show that this calcium channel associated transcription regulator (CCAT), binds to a nuclear protein, associates with an endogenous promoter, and regulates the expression of a variety of endogenous genes that are important for the function of neurons and muscle cells. The nuclear localization of CCAT is regulated by changes in intracellular calcium on a time scale of minutes, suggesting that CCAT integrates information about the electrical activity of the cell. Together these findings reveal an entirely unexpected function for a well-characterized calcium channel. This works also addresses the question of how CCAT is generated. I show that CCAT is not released from proteolysis of full-length Cav1.2 channel but is generated from an mRNA that is transcribed from the 3' end of the Cav1.2 gene (CACNA1C). Consistent with this, I find that CCAT expression is independent of full-length channel protein and that exon 46 of the CACNA1C gene contains a promoter whose transcriptional activity is required for the expression of CCAT. Activity at this promoter, and consequently CCAT expression, is regulated spatially and temporally in the brain having highest expression during embryonic stages and in regions of the brain rich in inhibitory neurons. Analysis of 5' transcriptional starts from CACNA1C and Cap Analysis of Gene Expression (CAGE) tags from genome-wide studies show at least two mRNAs one of which encodes CCAT in vivo and a second transcript that is predicted to encode a membrane bound CCAT containing a voltage sensor. These findings reveal an unexpected mechanism by which CCAT is generated in neurons and provide a unique example by which two proteins with distinct biologic functions can be derived from a single gene. Such transcriptional phenomena may be at play in many other genes throughout the genome and has far reaching implications for prediction of gene products and interpretation of phenotypes in gene mutations and knockout studies.

    Due to a great chemical similarity with the biological calcified tissues, many calcium orthophosphates possess remarkable biocompatibility and bioactivity. Materials scientists use this property extensively to construct artificial bone grafts that are either entirely made of or only surface-coated with the biologically relevant calcium orthophosphates. Porous scaffolds made of calcium orthophosphates are very promising tools for tissue engineering applications. A comprehensive overview of calcium orthophosphates, this book highlights their importance and biomedical uses.

    Nuclear envelope (NE) defects have been linked to cancer biology since the mid-1800s, but it was not until the last few years that we have begun to understand these historical links and to realize that there are myriad ways that the NE impacts on tumorigenesis. The NE is a complex double membrane system that encloses the genome while providing structural support through the intermediate filament lamin polymer and regulating protein/ mRNA trafficking and signaling between the nucleus and cytoplasm via the nuclear pore complexes (NPCs). These functions already provide some mechanisms for NE influences on cancer biology, but work in the past few years has elucidated many others. Lamins and many recently identified NE transmembrane proteins (NETs) have been now shown to function in DNA repair, regulation of cell cycle and signaling, apoptosis, cell migration in metastasis, and nuclear architecture and morphology. This volume presents a comprehensive overview of the wide range of functions recently identified for NE proteins and their relevance in cancer biology, providing molecular mechanisms and evidence of their value as prognostic and diagnostic markers, and suggesting new avenues for the treatment of cancer. Indeed some of these recent links are already yielding promising therapies, such as the current clinical trial of selective inhibitors of the nuclear export factor exportin in certain types of leukemia, melanoma and kidney cancer.

    "According to the American Cancer Society report, "by 2030, the global cancer burden is expected to nearly double, growing to 21.4 million cases and 13.2 million deaths." Early diagnosis improves treatment efficacy and quality of life as well as reduces the cost for disease management. However, the development of molecular markers for early cancer diagnosis is always a challenge. Some fundamental principles in medical practice are (a) primum non nocere, a Latin phrase that means "first, do no harm," and (b) even when a patient's prognosis is poor, the physician must do his or her best for improving quality of the patient's life. Therefore, noninvasive or minimally invasive cancer diagnostic methods are of choice that can avoid complications of biopsy and other unfavorable impacts on patient's health. In this context, patients' easily collectable biospecimens such as blood, serum, plasma, urine, stool, sputum, saliva, etc., based molecular markers having high specificity and sensitivity in early diagnosis are emerging rapidly and in many instances such markers are also emerging as next-generation prognostic indicators and personalized therapeutics and precision medicine. Several patents have been filed and/or granted on such markers, and a number of health-care companies and authorities currently use or focus on the development of such markers. The significance of clinical validation approaches of several markers has been discussed in different chapters. This book, Cancer Biomarkers: Noninvasive Early Diagnosis and Prognosis, reflects the rapid expansion of important scientific, technological, clinical, and translational aspects of noninvasive or minimally invasive molecular cancer biomarkers and their applications along with other conventional markers"-- Provided by publisher.

    "Cancer-causing viruses, also called oncoviruses, play a key role in the development of certain cancers. They contribute to genetic changes that disrupt the cell cycle machinery, interfering with functions such as cell growth. Cancer-Causing Viruses and Their Inhibitors presents a plethora of research from internationally reputed contributors who discuss different types of oncoviruses, their mechanisms of invasion and growth, and their life cycles. The book begins with an overview of the oncoviruses discovered to date and includes a brief description of their structures, genotypes, replication, and mechanisms of infection leading to cancers. It then explores several of these viruses in detail, including: Human T-cell leukemia virus type 1 (HTLV-1), Hepatitis C virus (HCV), Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), Human papilloma virus (HPV), Human herpes virus 8 (HHV-8)/Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpes virus (KSHV), Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV/AIDS), Oncolytic viruses. This book is an essential reference for those working in virology, oncology, and biotechnology. The discoveries presented will enable researchers and clinicians to optimize both historical and current approaches to anti-viral therapies"--Provided by publisher.

    Cancer is one of the leading killers in the world and the incidence is increasing, but most cancer patients and cancer survivors suffer much from the disease and its conventional treatments' side effects. In the past, clinical data showed that some complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) possessed anticancer abilities, but some clinicians and scientists have queried about the scientific validity of CAM due to the lack of scientific evidence. There is great demand in the knowledge gap to explore the scientific and evidence-based knowledge of CAM in the anticancer field. With this aim, a book series is needed to structurally deliver the knowledge to readers. Throughout the past decade, the cancer chemopreventive potencies and treatment effects of a number of natural dietary agents present in different food sources have been evaluated by various experiments. Some of them have progressed to early clinical trials. This volume is a specialized book presenting the research evidence relevant to the use of specific diet therapy in cancer chemoprevention and treatment. We begin with lessons learned from dietary resveratrol as an effective agent with anticancer properties against malignancies, followed examples of flavonoids from fruits and vegetables in the prevention and treatment of cancer. Evidence for the beneficial influence of diet enriched with flax seed oil and green tea on cancer will be reviewed. Soy food intake may enhance the effects on anticancer treatment for breast cancer, whereas lycopene-rich foods may possess chemopreventive efficacy. There are also discussions on the contribution of the cancer preventive effects of the antioxidant-rich foods and Mediterranean diet. In addition, the modulation of proteasome pathways by nutraceuticals is highlighted. Finally, we close the book with a discussion on the attenuation of cell survival signaling by bioactive phytochemicals in the prevention and therapy cancer.

    Recurrent gene fusions and chromosomal translocations have long been recognized for their roles in oncogenesis. This dissertation employs genomic approaches to discover and characterize novel gene fusions in several cancer types. First we developed a "breakpoint analysis" pipeline for gene fusion discovery and applied this method to a collection of nearly 1,000 human cancer samples profiled on DNA microarrays. This approach led to the discovery and characterization of twelve new gene fusions in diverse cancer types including angiosarcoma, pancreatic cancer, and colon cancer. Separately, we performed RNA Sequencing on a series of 36 breast cancer specimens and used a suite of computational tools developed in-house to discover ~350 candidate gene rearrangements. Notably, we discovered recurrent fusions of the sterile 20 (STE20)-like kinase TAOK1, and functional studies suggest that these fusions encode potent oncoproteins that drive breast carcinogenesis. Many of the alterations discovered in this dissertation represent the first gene fusions reported to date in the corresponding cancer type, and many represent potentially druggable targets with therapeutic implications for patients.

    Cancer Genomics addresses how recent technological advances in genomics are shaping how we diagnose and treat cancer. Built on the historical context of cancer genetics over the past 30 years, the book provides a snapshot of the current issues and state-of-the-art technologies used in cancer genomics. Subsequent chapters highlight how these approaches have informed our understanding of hereditary cancer syndromes and the diagnosis, treatment and outcome in a variety of adult and pediatric solid tumors and hematologic malignancies. The dramatic increase in cancer genomics research and ever-increasing availability of genomic testing are not without significant ethical issues, which are addressed in the context of the return of research results and the legal considerations underlying the commercialization of genomic discoveries. Finally, the book concludes with "Future Directions", examining the next great challenges to face the field of cancer genomics, namely the contribution of non-coding RNAs to disease pathogenesis and the interaction of the human genome with the environment. Tools such as sidebars, key concept summaries, a glossary, and acronym and abbreviation definitions make this book highly accessible to researchers from several fields associated with cancer genomics.Contributions from thought leaders provide valuable historical perspective to relate the advances in the field to current technologies and literature.

    This is the second edition of a practice-oriented, well-illustrated manual on the microscopic grading of tumors. After an introduction on the history and basic tenets of tumor grading, subsequent chapters focus on specific organ systems. In each case, the most widely used system for grading common tumors is presented and discussed. Throughout, careful attention is paid to the principles of microscopic tumor grading, ancillary methods to improve grading, and the latest techniques used in evaluating tumors and formulating prognosis.

    Cancer Immunology is intended as an up-to-date, clinically relevant review of cancer immunology and immunotherapy. The rapid flow of studies in the field of cancer immunology during the last decade has increased our understanding of the interactions between the immune system and cancerous cells. In particular, it is now well known that such interactions result in the induction of epigenetic changes in cancerous cells and the selection of less immunogenic clones as well as alterations in immune responses. Understanding the cross-talk between nascent transformed cells and cells of the immune system has led to the development of combinatorial immunotherapeutic strategies to combat cancer. This volume is focused on interactions between cancerous cells and various components of the innate and adaptive immune system are fully described. Notably, the principal focus is very much on clinical aspects, the aim being to educate clinicians on the clinical implications of the most recent findings and novel developments in the field. This is to be hoped that this translational book will be comprehensible, cogent and of special value for researchers and clinicians who wish to extend their knowledge on cancer immunology.

    This volume is a comprehensive discussion of the major factors affecting tumor immunology and a discussion of all major anti-cancer immunotherapeutic agents approved by the Food and Drug Administration of the United States and by European agencies. Many promising but unapproved agents in clinical trials are also discussed, as are key pre-clinical developments. The major challenges and intellectual issues facing investigators developing novel immunotherapeutics are discussed in detail as are conceptual developments influencing current and future treatment strategies.Each chapter begins by defining all relevant key terms and concepts and provides pertinent background information so that the text will be accessible to newcomers to the field as well as to the expert. This text book should provide an excellent reference resource for investigators in tumor immunology, life sciences students, drug developers designing novel anti-cancer immunotherapeutics, and to other individuals with some scientific training wishing to gain a better understanding of the field of tumor immunotherapy.Although the field is evolving rapidly, we have taken pains to ensure that information was as up to date as possible as the text went to press.

    Cancer remains a major challenge for medicine and it continues to claim lives and cause great suffering. Pain is a symptom experienced by most cancer patients regardless of disease stage, and less than 50% of cancer pain patients achieve effective pain and symptom control though available therapies. If these therapies are utilized correctly, many more patients can achieve effective control. While opioids are still seen as the mainstay of cancer pain treatment, it is necessary to examine whether this treatment strategy still holds true in the 21st century. Cancer Pain provides a comprehensive, up-to-date, practical guide to the management of pain in cancer patients. The book provides a clear, concise explanation of cancer pain syndromes, a modern understanding of the pathophysiological mechanism and an overview of recent developments in creating pre-clinical cancer pain models. It offers the reader the wide and improved options for management of cancer pain in clinical practice, including the use of opioid and non-opioid drugs, and defines the role of non-pharmacological methods for pain control. Cancer Pain also provides an overview of the latest developments in the management of cancer, which have major implications for the current and future thinking in cancer pain treatment strategy. This text is an invaluable resource for doctors, trainees and clinical nurse specialists in palliative medicine and oncology, and would be of interest to anyone who wishes to gain a better understanding of the complex nature of cancer pain and the tools available to alleviate it.

    Cancer-related fatigue (CrF) is increasingly recognized as a significant problem for patients with cancer at all stages, including those undergoing therapy and in remission. In fact, studies have shown that CrF causes patients more distress than pain, nausea, or vomiting and yet fatigue is still often undertreated and rarely studied. However, several new treatments such as are being investigated to determine the most effective ways to manage this debilitating symptom and improve patient quality of life. Cancer-Related Fatigue will provide a concise overview of this condition, with an evidence-based discussion of diagnosis, treatment, and long-term management.

    The ouput of eukaryotic genomes is much more complex than expected. Genes produce different variants of RNAs from multiple promoters. One of the ultimate targets of biological analysis is to establish a relationship between the messenger RNAs that are transcribed from the genome and the genomic regions that control their expression - the promoters - in order to decipher the networks that regulate gene expression and the transcription factors that act as master regulators of transcriptional control. Novel technologies have recently appeared that allow deciphering of transcriptional network, based on the identification of the starting site of gene transcription, with the simultaneous measurement of expression level and identification of the promoter elements. These tagging technologies (including cap-analysis gene expression - CAGE - and others) are further boosted from the development of the novel generation of sequencing instruments, which allow transcriptional profiling by sequencing at the cost of microarray experiments. This book is a guide for users of new technologies, as it includes accurately proven protocols, allowing readers to prepare their samples for experiments. Additionally, it provides a guide for the bioinformatics tools that are available for the analysis of the obtained tags, including the design of the software, the sources and web information where they can be downloaded. Finally, the book provides examples of the application of these technologies to identify promoters, annotate genomes, identify new RNAs and reconstruct models of transcriptional control. Although examples mainly regard mammalians, the discussion expands to other groups of eukaryotes, where these approaches are complementing genome sequencing.

    The study of carbonic anhydrase has spanned multiple generations of scientists. Carbonic anhydrase was first discovered in 1932 by Meldrum and Roughton. Inhibition by sulfanilamide was shown in 1940 by Mann and Keilin. Even Hans Krebs contributed to early studies with a paper in 1948 showing the relationship of 25 different sulfonamides to CA inhibition. It was he who pointed out the importance of both the charged and uncharged character of these compounds for physiological experiments. The field of study that focuses on carbonic anhydrase (CA) has exploded in recent years with the identification.

    This book serves as a practical guide for the use of carbon ions in cancer radiotherapy. On the basis of clinical experience with more than 7,000 patients with various types of tumors treated over a period of nearly 20 years at the National Institute of Radiological Sciences, step-by-step procedures and technological development of this modality are highlighted. The book is divided into two sections, the first covering the underlying principles of physics and biology, and the second section is a systematic review by tumor site, concentrating on the role of therapeutic techniques and the pitfalls in treatment planning. Readers will learn of the superior outcomes obtained with carbon-ion therapy for various types of tumors in terms of local control and toxicities. It is essential to understand that the carbon-ion beam is like a two-edged sword: unless it is used properly, it can increase the risk of severe injury to critical organs. In early series of dose-escalation studies, some patients experienced serious adverse effects such as skin ulcers, pneumonitis, intestinal ulcers, and bone necrosis, for which salvage surgery or hospitalization was required. To preclude such detrimental results, the adequacy of therapeutic techniques and dose fractionations was carefully examined in each case. In this way, significant improvements in treatment results have been achieved and major toxicities are no longer observed. With that knowledge, experts in relevant fields expand upon techniques for treatment delivery at each anatomical site, covering indications and optimal treatment planning. With its practical focus, this book will benefit radiation oncologists, medical physicists, medical dosimetrists, radiation therapists, and senior nurses whose work involves radiation therapy, as well as medical oncologists and others who are interested in radiation therapy.

    The processes of adaptation and maladaptation play an important role in the pathogeny of serious cardiovascular diseases, such as hypertension, valvular diseases, congenital heart disease, myocardial infarction and different cardiomyopathies as well as during adaptation to exercise and high altitude hypoxia. This volume incorporates the rapidly developing basic and clinically relevant information on adaptive mechanisms, thereby contributing to the better understanding of possible prevention and therapy of life-threatening cardiovascular diseases. The first section of this volume focuses on developmental aspects of cardiac adaptation, including chapters on comparative and molecular aspects of cardiac development, prenatal and postnatal developments, coronary vascular development, and ontogenetic adaptation to hypoxia, as well as cardiac and arterial adaptation during aging. The second section is devoted to cardiac adaptations to overload on the heart, centered around the mechanisms of cardiac hypertrophy due to pressure overload, volume overload, exercise, gender difference, high altitude, and different pathological situations. The third section of this volume highlights the roles of sympathetic nervous system with respect to [alpha]-adrenoceptor and [beta]-adrenoceptor mechanisms in the development of cardiac hypertrophy. Cardiac Adaptations will be of great value to cardiovascular investigators, who will find this book highly useful in their cardiovascular studies for finding solutions in diverse pathological conditions; it will also appeal to students, fellows, scientists, and clinicians interested in cardiovascular abnormalities.

    The past 50 years have witnessed the growth and evolution of clinical electrophysiology from a field whose goals were simply to understand of the mechanisms of arrhythmia to one of significant therapeutic impact. The development and refinement of implantable devices and catheter ablation have made non-pharmacological therapy a treatment of choice for most arrhythmias encountered in clinical practice. Cardiac Arrhythmias: From Basic Mechanism To State-of-the-Art Management provides an electrophysiologic approach to arrhythmias predicated on the hypothesis that a better understanding of the mechanisms of arrhythmias will lead to more successful and rationally chosen therapy. It encompasses the anatomy of arrhythmias, diagnostic methods, comorbid diseases, and the treatment of all forms of cardiac arrhythmias. It discusses modern ablation and mapping techniques, while reviews the methodology required to define the mechanism and site of origin of arrhythmias, so that safe and effective therapy can be chosen. It will thus be of interest to all involved in the management of these patients, from clinical cardiac electrophysiologists themselves to clinical cardiologists, interventionalists, cardiac surgeons, emergency medicine physicians and researchers in basic cardiac science.

    The heart is the first organ to function in development and continues to beat for seventy or more years in an adult's life. Cardiogenesis therefore is no simple task; genes have to be precisely regulated to meet the needs of a developing heart. ATP-dependent chromatin remodeling provides an important mechanism to regulate gene expression. Specifically, Brg1-associated factor, or the BAF, complexes, are crucial in heart development. Endocardial Brg1 represses the expression of a metalloproteinase, ADAMTS1, in order to allow sufficient cardiac jelly expansion for trabecular development. In addition, Brg1 functions in the myocardium to repress VEGFA to prevent the ectopic formation of coronary vasculature from the epicardium in a non-cell autonomous manner. And lastly, Brg1 serves as a bridge linking embryonic development and adult cardiomyopathies. Brg1 functions in the myocardium to keep the cardiomyocytes in a proliferating state through promoting BMP10 and repressing a cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor p57kip2. Without Brg1, cardiomyocytes cease cell division, mature, and express adult form of myosin heavy (MHC) chain gene. Brg1 is normally turned off in adult life; however, following cardiac stress it is reactivated and turns on embryonic fetal program characterized by re-induction of embryonic MHC expression. Preventing Brg1 re-expression can repress cardiac hypertrophy and restore adult MHC expression. Furthermore, Brg1 physically interacts with other chromatin remodeling enzymes such as histone deacetylases and poly-ADP ribose polymerases to control expression of MHC genes and regulate cardiomyocyte differentiation. In all, ATP-dependent chromatin remodeling plays important roles in heart development and disease and may provide a suitable therapeutic target for human cardiomyopathies in the future.

    Cardiac pacing is one of the best examples where the developments in technology and the microchip industry have resulted in outstanding clinical benefits to patients, and it is likely that further innovation and miniaturization will continue to make this specialty a stimulating and exciting one. As pacing is being devolved from specialist to smaller cardiology centers and where pacemaker implantation is becoming the domain of cardiologists rather than surgeons, there is a need for practical clinical guidance to pacing issues that can be used alongside a comprehensive practical training program in an experienced pacing centre. Cardiac Pacing and Device Therapy is a practical reference for all those involved in the day-to-day care of paced patients and particularly for those cardiologists planning a career in this most interesting and exciting specialty, the so-called "device specialist". The text and images will give the reader a greater understanding of the type of technology and equipment that is currently available from the cardiac device industry. The book contains practical information on temporary and epicardial pacing, elective generator change, explant procedures, pacing in children, implantable cardioverter defibrillators, cardiac resynchronization therapy, troubleshooting in pacing and training guidelines/regulations for those intending to make a career in pacing/device implantation. As such, this book provides an superb illustrated introduction to those with an interest in cardiac pacing and device therapy, from trainees and clinical fellows through to consultant cardiologists involved in a pacemaker program, cardiac physiologists and other allied medical professionals.

    Cardiac tumors were once a nosographic entity of scarce clinical interest because of the rarity and of the intrinsic diagnostic and therapeutic impossibilities, and were considered a fatal morbid entity. It has now become a topical subject due to advances in clinical imaging (echo, magnetic resonance, computed tomography) as well as innovation in technologies of in-vivo diagnosis. Cardiac Tumor Pathology presents a spectacular example of these advances with clinico-pathologic correlations. This timely volume covers history, epidemiology, demographics, clinical diagnosis, pathology, imaging by echo, CT and MRI of both benign and malignant cardiac tumors, either primary or secondary. Chemotherapy of malignant neoplasms is also addressed. Special emphasis is given to clinico-pathologic correlations. With all chapters written by experts in their fields, this volume will serve as a useful resource for physicians dealing with, and interested in, this special branch of cardiac oncology and will represent a useful guide for pathologists, clinicians, cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, and radiologists as well as for postgraduate students training in these areas.

    Experimental studies in the field of cardiac valve biology are now demonstrating that the cardiac valve disease process is an active biology with risk factors analogous to vascular risk factors. Understanding the risk factors is also evolving rapidly, giving physicians and scientists insight into the cellular mechanisms and raising the possibility of treating these valve lesions with other options besides surgical valve repair. Our knowledge of right-sided valve lesions is also rapidly becoming important in the field of valvular medicine. Not only is the pathology different from left-sided valve lesions, but the hemodynamic compromise is more complex and difficult to treat in patients who develop tricuspid or pulmonic valve disease. Early diagnosis and careful management of this patient population is critical for long term outcomes in this patient population. Cardiac Valvular Medicine represents an overview of the most recent science, clinical trials and new discoveries in the field of valvular heart disease. The editor has assembled a team of highly experienced contributors to provide a thorough translational understanding of the current and future treatments for this patient population. Cardiologists, internists, family practice physicians, cardiac surgeons and basic scientists will all find enormous benefit from this textbook.

    This book provides a comprehensive overview of the clinical challenges faced during the treatment of patients with cardiorenal syndrome (CRS). The bidirectional link that associates renal and cardiovascular diseases means that patients with CRS have an increased risk of hospital admission and mortality as a result of their coexistence yet, there are no agreed guidelines for their management. Cardio-Renal Clinical Challenges takes clinical presentations and clinical problems as its base, and then discusses the evidence for best management of common clinical problems and the reasons for the complex interplay between the cardiac and renal systems. In addition, the link between heart failure and chronic kidney disease (CKD) can impose a considerable epidemiological burden thus this text also aims to address the issue of organizing healthcare to maximize both the opportunities for prevention and best healthcare economic returns. This book will be of immediate value and practical interest to all consulting and trainee cardiologists and renal physicians.

    Chronic kidney disease with a worldwide prevalence of 10% in the general population is emerging as a major public health priority. Renal dysfunction is associated with a high risk for cardiovascular complications. The relationship between renal insufficiency and cardiovascular disease, termed the cardiorenal syndrome exists whether impairment of renal function is a consequence of primary renal parenchymal disease or primary heart disease. This book provides a comprehensive update analysis of our current understanding of the cardiorenal syndrome including epidemiology pathophysiologic mechanism.

    The availability and diffusion of high-performance technologies has strengthened the role of CT angiography and MR angiography as simple, reliable techniques for the characterization and treatment planning of the principal diseases of the cardiovascular system, an understanding of which has become essential for all radiologists. The aim of this book is to provide concise but thorough information and guidance on the main methods and examination techniques used when performing high-quality CT angiography and MR angiography studies in a broad range of clinical settings. The lucid text is supported by a large number of case studies and is rich in advice on image interpretation and practical suggestions for the evaluation and reporting of the examinations. Importantly, a central feature is detailed comparison of the advantages and limitations of the two techniques in various diseases and vascular regions; the book will therefore enable both trainee and expert radiologists to understand their indications and to select the most appropriate technique in different contexts.

    "A nurse inserts an I.V. A personal care attendant helps a quadriplegic bathe and get dressed. A nanny reads a bedtime story to soothe a child to sleep. Every day, workers like these provide critical support to some of the most vulnerable members of our society. Caring on the Clock provides a wealth of insight into these workers, who take care of our most fundamental needs, often at risk to their own economic and physical well-being. Caring on the Clock is the first book to bring together cutting-edge research on a wide range of paid care occupations, and to place the various fields within a comprehensive and comparative framework across occupational boundaries. The book includes twenty-two original essays by leading researchers across a range of disciplines--including sociology, psychology, social work, and public health. They examine the history of the paid care sector in America, reveal why paid-care work can be both personally fulfilling but also make workers vulnerable to burnout, emotional fatigue, physical injuries, and wage exploitation. Finally, the editors outline many innovative ideas for reform, including top-down and grassroots efforts to improve recognition, remuneration, and mobility for care workers. As America faces a series of challenges to providing care for its citizens, including the many aging baby boomers, this volume offers a wealth of information and insight for policymakers, scholars, advocates, and the general public"--Provided by publisher.

    Cardiac C-arm CT is a valuable imaging modality that can provide three-dimensional images of the heart during an interventional procedure. As the technology advances to provide better image quality and faster acquisition times, the potential clinical uses increase. Visualization of myocardial defects could directly impact the guidance, procedure time, and outcome of various interventional procedures. In this work, I developed protocols to optimize low-contrast detectability for cardiac C-arm CT and performed in vivo studies to validate using C-arm CT for imaging myocardial necrosis during a cardiac interventional procedure. Initial in vivo investigations were used to evaluate the contrast injection protocol for ideal timing, dilution, catheter type, and injection location. Additionally, x-ray parameters including filtration, kVp, dose, and collimation were optimized for low-contrast detectability and minimization of artifacts. A 4 sweep x 5 s, ECG-gated imaging protocol using low energy (70-90 kVp) and high dose (1.2 [mu]Gy/projection) optimizes low contrast detectability, while collimation around the heart improves SNR by reducing scatter. Images acquired both in vivo and in a slab phantom show that tight collimation and beam filtration result in improved SNR and a reduction of shading artifacts. Visualization of radiofrequency ablation lesions using contrast enhanced C-arm CT during the procedure provides a direct assessment of adequate lesion formation and may circumvent complications associated with cardiac ablation procedures. An in vivo validation study was completed in 9 swine by comparing lesion dimensions measured in C-arm CT images and pathology specimens. All ablation lesions were visualized and lesion dimensions, as measured on C-arm CT, correlated well with postmortem tissue measurements using triphenyltetrazolium chloride (TTC) staining (mean difference 1D dimensions: 0.09 ± 1.04 mm, area: -0.71 ± 5.86 mm2). C-arm CT visualization of myocardial infarction (MI) in the catheterization lab could furnish early prognostic information for risk stratification as well as provide 3D images for guidance of stem cell or ablation therapies. A porcine model using balloon occlusion in the coronary artery was used to study visualization of acute and subacute MI in 12 swine. Contrast enhanced C-arm CT imaging was performed the day of infarct creation or 4 weeks after infarct creation and the volume of the infarct was compared against pathology to validate the visualization of infarction. Acute MI is best visualized at 1 minute post contrast injection as a region of combined hyper- and hypoenhancement whereas subacute MI appears as a region of hyperenhancement with peak contrast enhancement at 5 minutes post contrast injection. C-arm CT infarct volumes compared well with TTC staining (mean difference acute: -0.5 cm3, subacute: -0.7cm3). In conclusion, cardiac C-arm CT with contrast and imaging protocols optimized for low-contrast detectability has been established as a consistent and reliable technique for imaging myocardial necrotic tissue in the interventional suite.

    Nowadays, it is established that carpal ligamentary lesions may lead to instability and then to carpal arthritis. However, the variety of anatomopathological classifications and the multiplicity of surgical repair techniques reflect the difficulty of conceiving this ligamentary pathology. The clinical analysis and traditional investigation techniques face the complexity of the wrist. Its mechanical complexity is due to the number of synchronized bones in every movement of the hand. The clinical analysis of the wrist is insufficient to precisely measure the mobility of each carpal bone. Paraclinical examinations are also significant for clinical diagnosis. The tools available today range from X-rays to arthroscopy, including arthroCTscan and soon MRI. As concerns repair techniques, their diversity must not hide the fact that a biomechanical and physiological principle is involved and must be identified. This book is the result of a reflection of an expert group in the field of wrist pathology. It attempts to analyze, understand, explain and make comprehensible, if not obvious, the reflections that each practitioner should employ during the diagnosis and treatment of carpal ligamentary lesions. The focus is consciously not on degenerative carpal pathology, which usually enjoys more visibility. We hope that readers will benefit from the fact that fragmented pieces of knowledge are gathered in a single work, that they will find in this beginning synthesis inspiring to rethink a difficult and sometimes thankless surgery and to further the surgical advances of the 21st century.

    Accurate control of the radio-frequency (RF) electromagnetic fields in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is necessary to ensure patient safety and provide high-quality diagnostic capabilities. Precise control is however becoming increasingly difficult to achieve, given the recent trends toward high fields and transmitter array systems. At high fields, imaging is performed in a frequency regime where the wavelength is on the order of, or smaller than, the dimensions of the human body. This leads to prominent wave behavior, non-uniform field patterns, and increased power deposition. Multi-element transmitter array systems with independent phase and amplitude control of their elements support methods that can mitigate these problems. However, in turn, they demand high fidelity RF reproduction and may lead to undesired electromagnetic interactions between elements of the arrays and with interventional devices. Frequency-offset Cartesian feedback can be used to address all of these issues. In combination with the use of polyphase error amplifiers (to implement a low-IF control bandwidth), Cartesian feedback can be used with MRI power amplifiers and transmit coils to increase the fidelity of RF reproduction, without the in-bandwidth DC-offsets and quadrature mismatches that may lead to imaging artifacts such as bright spots and ghosting. In addition, the control system, which includes autotuning circuitry for stability and vector multipliers circuitry for feedback manipulation, can be used to tune the series output impedance of these amplifiers, thereby reducing the likelihood of interactions between elements of transmit array systems. Furthermore, a miniaturized variation of the control system (called Active Cable Trap) can be used on guidewires to suppress undesired currents elicited by coupling with the RF fields of the transmit coils. In an era of rapid progress in high field MRI for clinical applications, the frequency offset Cartesian feedback method and system thus promises to address many of the challenges faced by designers of multi-element transmitter array systems.

    This booklet, published in cooperation with ISAKOS, is a concise, up-to-date guide and reference on the treatment of cartilage lesions of the ankle that will be of practical clinical value for specialists in sports medicine and sports traumatology. Different techniques and the management of various lesions are described step by step, guiding the practitioner through the entire spectrum of care from evaluation of the injury to successful recovery. Chondral and osteochondral lesions of the talus can present as a consequence of repetitive ankle injuries, causing chronic pain, recurrent swelling, and weakness and stiffness of the ankle joint. An accurate early diagnosis is required, using clinical evaluation, imaging techniques, and arthroscopy of the ankle. In acute and non-displaced chondral and osteochondral lesions, conservative treatment is the mainstay. Surgery is recommended for unstable and persistent lesions and consists in several techniques focused on regeneration of the cartilage. Returning to play is possible after testing balance and proprioception, strength, range of motion, and agility.

    "A case-based book organized by the top 10 common complaints of patients presenting to emergency departments. This approach allows the reader to learn the pathophysiology of the major diseases, and analyze each case in a way that more closely approximates the clinical practice of medicine; not knowing which organ system is damaged or compromised before examining the patient. The cases are based on real patients and the diseases are either common in emergency practice, or are dangerous diagnoses not to be missed. The case descriptions include questions regarding the patient's presentation and basic information about the disease, illustrating key elements from the history, physical, and when necessary ancillary studies that help lead to a diagnosis. Each chapter ends with a flow diagram showing how diseases of different organ systems can present with similar initial complaints. This book is an ideal resource for medical students, residents and trainees in emergency medicine"--Provided by publisher.

    "Today's knowledge of human health demands a multidisciplinary understanding of medically related sciences, and Case Studies in the Physiology of Nutrition answers the call. Dedicated to the integration of nutrition science with physiology, this text cohesively incorporates descriptions of human problems in order to stimulate students' critical thinking about how the body integrates various physiological factors to maintain homeostasis. This textbook uses short story-type case studies about fictional individuals who have health problems in order to address a range of issues in an approachable manner. The studies vary in difficulty, with some being straightforward with very simple answers, while others require in-depth thinking and literature research to solve. Each study presents patient background, symptoms, clinical finding, and questions to ponder. Upon qualifying course adoption, this book also includes a valuable instructor's manual, which provides solutions to exercises, problem analysis, and resolution to each case study."--Publisher's description.

    Catalytic promiscuity, the property of enzymes possessing low levels of activity toward non-cognate reactions, can be exploited as a functional tool to investigate conserved and non-conserved mechanism of enzyme specificity and catalysis between members in the same superfamily. Members of the main branch of the Alkaline Phosphatase (AP) superfamily have a structurally conserved core and active site bimetallo site. Other active site features that confer specificity for a given reaction differ between the families. Families within this superfamily catalyze a wide range of reactions, and enzymes within different families show catalytic promiscuity toward reactions catalyzed by other families within this branch. Structural comparisons and phylogenetic analysis suggests that all of the families in the superfamily arose from a common ancestor whose active site consisted of the bimetallo site alone, absent of peripheral, specificity determining features. Experimental data with a member of the nucleotide pyrophosphatase/phosphodiesterase (NPP) family suggests that a "minimal" mutant version of this enzyme that lacks peripheral, specificity determining features, has equal activity toward the two major reactions catalyzed by the AP superfamily, phosphate monoester and phosphate diester hydrolysis reactions. Together, the structural comparisons, phylogenic analysis, and experimental results lead to the hypothesis that the common ancestor of the AP superfamily is a "generalist." By using a variety of techniques, we provide support for a mechanism of evolution in which a "generalist" enzyme may give rise to multiple enzymes specific for, related, but individual reactions. Support for this mechanism, first proposed in 1976, has, until, now been limited. We suggest that this "generalist" mechanism is a valid mechanism for the evolution of ancient enzymes, present in the early evolution of life, into diverse superfamilies in which each family possesses specificity for one given reaction.

    "In 2007, David Goldhill's father died from a series of infections acquired in a well-regarded New York hospital. The bill was for several hundred thousand dollars--and Medicare paid it. These circumstances left Goldhill angry and determined to understand how it was possible that world-class technology and well-trained personnel could result in such simple, inexcusable carelessness--and how a business that failed so miserably could be rewarded with full payment. Catastrophic Care is the eye-opening result. Goldhill explicates a health-care system that now costs nearly $2.5 trillion annually, bars many from treatment, provides inconsistent quality of care, offers negligible customer service, and in which an estimated 200,000 Americans die each year from errors. Above all, he exposes the fundamental fallacy of our entire system--that Medicare and insurance coverage make care cheaper and improve our health--and suggests a comprehensive new approach that could produce better results at more acceptable costs immediately by giving us, the patients, a real role in the process." -- [Provided by publisher]

    Operator skills, and in particular decision-making and strategic skills, are the most critical factor for the outcome of catheter-based cardiovascular interventions. Currently, such skills are commonly developed by the empirical trial and error method only. In this textbook, for the first time, an explicit teaching, training, and learning approach is set out that will enable interventional operators, whether cardiologists, vascular surgeons, vascular specialists, or radiologists, to learn about and to develop the cognitive skills required in order to achieve consistent expert-level catheter-based interventions. It is anticipated that adoption of this approach will allow catheter-based interventions to become a domain of excellence, with rapid transfer of knowledge, steep learning curves, and highly efficient acquisition of complex skills by individual operators -- all of which are essential if we are to meet successfully the challenges of modern cardiovascular care embedded in highly competitive health care markets.

    Monocytes rapidly infiltrate inflamed tissues and differentiate into inflammatory dendritic cells (DCs) that mediate pathogen clearance. However, the cellular and molecular mechanisms governing inflammatory DC formation and subsequent function remain elusive. Current evidence suggests that conserved molecular patterns present on different classes of microbes that engage pattern recognition receptors on DCs dictate the type of immune response initiated by DCs. Given that pathogens are under evolutionary pressure to avoid elimination, we reasoned that memory T cells were better positioned to inform the immune response. The studies presented in this dissertation indicate that memory T cells dictate the nature of the immune response through the induction of functionally specialized inflammatory DCs. Our studies indicate that T-helper (TH) cells interact with monocytes in inflamed tissues and instruct monocytes to differentiate into inflammatory DCs in vivo. This process is antigen-driven and requires cell contact, GM-CSF and TNF[alpha]. Interestingly, distinct TH cell subsets direct the formation of specialized DC subsets. In psoriasis lesions, TH1 and TH17 cells interact with monocytes and instruct these cells to differentiate into TH1- and TH17-promoting DCs, respectively. Correspondingly, in acute atopic dermatitis, TH2 cells interact with monocytes and elicit the formation of TH2-promoting DCs. Again, DC formation required GM-CSF and cell contact, whereas TH subset specific cytokines dictate DC function and the expression of DC subset specific surface molecules. Moreover, the phenotypes of T cell induced DC subsets are maintained following subsequent stimulation with a panel of toll-like receptor (TLR) agonists, suggesting that TH-derived signals outweigh downstream TLR signals in their influence on DC function. Our preliminary studies indicate that regulatory T cells promote the formation of tolerogenic DCs that are typically associated with tumor progression and poor patient prognosis. The data indicate that intra-tumoral Tregs frequently interact with monocytes within tumor tissue and instruct monocytes to differentiate into IL-10-producing tolerogenic DCs. Such Treg-induced DCs (DCTreg) are subsequently able to instruct naïve T cells to differentiate into FoxP3+, IL-10-producing regulatory T cells with potent suppressive activity. The capacity of Tregs to elicit DCTreg formation represents a physiologic mechanism that on one hand amplifies and perpetuates immune tolerance, but also contributes to attenuated anti-tumor immune responses. We also explored mechanisms capable of depleting inflammatory DCs. While previous studies have indicated that inflammatory DC depletion through systemic elimination of their monocyte precursors with clodronate-loaded liposomes ameliorates pathogenesis in psoriasis and other diseases, translation of these strategies into the clinic is difficult due the importance of monocytes in the clearance of infection. We describe three strategies that avoid the monocyte intermediates in order to directly prevent inflammatory DC formation or deplete inflammatory DCs through antibody-loaded toxins. These strategies provide useful tools for the targeted reduction of inflammatory DCs during disease pathogenesis. In summary, memory T cells dictate the nature of the immune response through the induction of functionally specialized inflammatory DCs. The system we utilized for generating DC subsets with differential TH polarizing capacity has facilitated the elucidation of cell surface and soluble factors governing the biology of TH-promoting DC subsets. These and additional molecules expressed by DC subsets should prove useful for detecting and quantifying each subset in situ and may enable the design of novel therapeutic strategies for T[not]H-associated inflammatory diseases.

    Keratin 14 (KRT14) expression marks the most primitive differentiation state in bladder cancer (BC) cells. However, the mechanisms by which KRT14-expressing cells promote tumorigenicity remain undefined. We found that KRT14-expressing cells express higher levels of CD14 and inflammatory factors such as IL6 and IL8. Using a syngeneic mouse BC model, we isolated CD14 high BC cells and show that this population is more tumorigenic compared to CD14 low cells and forms tumors that are more highly vascularized with higher myeloid cell infiltration. Inflammatory factors produced by CD14 high BC cells directly drive the recruitment and polarization of monocytes and macrophages to acquire immune-suppressive characteristics. In contrast, CD14 low BC cells have higher relative proliferation, which is markedly increased when stimulated by factors produced by CD14 high cells. Collectively, we demonstrate that CD14 high BC cells orchestrate tumor-promoting inflammation and drive tumor cell proliferation to promote tumor growth.

    The ability of stem/progenitor cells to exit the cell cycle is essential for proper embryonic development, but the mechanisms governing cell cycle exit are still not fully understood. Correct regulation of G1 is critical for ensuring proper organismal development, tissue homeostasis, and tumor suppression. The Retinoblastoma (Rb) gene family is composed of three genes, Rb, p107, and p130, which are collectively thought to serve as essential regulators of the G1 phase of the cell cycle in most proliferating cell types. The Rb family has also been implicated in promoting the gene expression of several differentiation programs in different cell lineages. However, due to the overlapping and compensatory functions among the Rb family members, a complete understanding of how the Rb family controls the cell cycle and differentiation programs within a cell remains unclear. Furthermore, it has not yet been tested whether the Rb family members are the only mediators of these cellular processes, or if there are alternative mechanisms for cell cycle exit and differentiation in mammalian stem and progenitor cells. Here we tested the requirement for the Rb protein and its family members p107 and p130 in G1 arrest and differentiation in mammalian cells. We employed several strategies to conditionally remove the Rb family genes in entire embryos and in specific neural lineages, as well as multiple differentiation systems in vitro. We found that Rb family triple knock-out (TKO) mouse embryos survive until days 9-11 of gestation, with similar patterning and organogenesis as seen in wild type embryos. Strikingly, a number of TKO cells, including in the neural lineage, are able to exit the cell cycle in G1 and fully differentiate in vivo and in culture. This ability of TKO cells to arrest in G1 is associated with the repression of key cell cycle target genes for E2F and Myc transcription factors. Thus, G1 arrest can be achieved independently of Rb family members, illustrating the robustness of cell cycle regulatory networks during embryogenesis, and identifying a novel program that regulates cell cycle exit in G1 in mammalian cells.

    [Publisher-supplied data] The ovary is a suitable organ for studying the processes of cell death. Cell death was first described in the rabbit ovary (Graaffian follicles), the phenomenon being called chromatolysis. To date, it is recognized that various forms of cell death (programmed cell death, apoptosis and autophagy) are essential components of ovarian development and function. Programmed cell death is responsable for the ovarian endowment of primordial follicles around birth; in the prepuberal and adult period, apoptosis is a basic mechanism by which oocytes are eliminated by cancer therapies and environmental toxicants; in the ovarian cycle, follicular atresia and luteal regression involve follicular cell apoptosis. Finally, abnormalities in cell death processes may lead to ovarian disease such as cancer and chemoresistance. In this book, after an introductory description of various forms of cell death and of the ovary development and function in mammals, the processes of cell death in ovarian somatic cells and oocytes are described at cytological, physiological and molecular levels and analyzed in the embryonic, prepuberal and adult ovary. A complex array of molecular pathways triggered by extrinsic and intrinsic signals able tor induce or suppress cell death in the same cell, according to cell type and ovary developmental stage, emerges. Physiological interactions with the axis hypothalamus-hypophysis as well as ovarian internal functional signal are also critically reviewed to explain the abortive development of follicles before the beginning of the ovarian cycle. The book conveys information useful to the updating of biologists and physicians who are interested to the ovary biology and functions. Hopefully it should provide also clues for stimulating novel experiments in the study of cell death in the mammalian ovary still at an early stage.

    Beginning from centuries of anecdotal descriptions of cell death, such as those on the development of the midwife toad in 1842 by Carl Vogt, to modern-day investigations of cell death as a biological discipline, it has become accepted that cell death in multicellular organisms is a normal part of life. This book provides a comprehensive view of cell death, from its mechanisms of initiation and execution, to its implication in human disease and therapy. Physiological cell death plays critical roles in almost all aspects of biology, and the book details its roles in lymphocyte homeostasis, neuronal function, metabolism, and the DNA damage response.?When physiological cell death goes awry, diseases can arise, and cancer is presented as a central paradigm for the consequences of derangements in the interplay between cell survival and cell death. At the same time, the potential promise of targeted therapies aimed at interdicting cell death machineries are also discussed extensively. The molecular mechanisms that underlie apoptotic cell death are illustrated from the perspectives of both the intrinsic, mitochondrial apoptotic pathway and the extrinsic, death receptor pathway. Key players in these pathways, such as the Bcl2 family proteins, cytochrome c, Apaf-1, caspases, death receptor adapter proteins, and inhibitor of apoptosis proteins, are presented from both functional and structural angles. Until only a few years ago, programmed cell death has been considered essentially synonymous with apoptosis. However, we now know that programmed cell death can also take other forms such as necrosis or necroptosis, and to this end, the mechanisms that underlie programmed necrosis in development and host defense are illustrated. The past twenty plus years have seen an incredible growth of research in cell death, with one breakthrough after another, and the legacy still goes on with constant new surprises and findings. Long live cell death!

    Defects in cell death pathways promote tumor development and progression, with potentially devastating consequences for cancer patients. Greater understanding of the defects occurring in cancer cells, and the unique characteristics of tumors which can make them vulnerable to cell death stimuli, offers tremendous opportunities for developing novel and effective anti-cancer therapies. In Cell Death in Cancer Biology and Treatment leading experts in the field provide a wealth of up-to-date knowledge regarding the molecular mechanisms and cell biological processes that control cell death. Each chapter also highlights recent advances in the translation of basic research findings into clinical trials. Beginning and established investigators alike will benefit from the thorough presentations of the most promising avenues for future development of cell death-based, anti-cancer strategies and agents. The volume begins with a detailed description of many of the cell death defects that have been identified in human tumor specimens. The unique bioenergetics of cancer cells, and the influence of the tumor microenvironment, autophagy, and cellular microRNAs on cancer cell death are then discussed, along with current progress in targeting these distinctive features and processes. Additional chapters describe recent advances, and the therapeutic benefits of targeting DNA repair pathways, protein chaperones, sphingolipid signaling, Bcl-2 family members, IAPs, death receptor signaling, the proteasome, and survival signaling emanating from the PI3K/AKT and RAS/RAF/MEK/ERK pathways. Finally, recent discoveries are presented regarding interactions between the immune system and dying cancer cells and the potential for optimizing these interactions to maximize anti-cancer activities. In summary, Cell Death in Cancer Biology and Treatment will be a valuable resource for scientists interested in cutting-edge understanding of aberrant cell death in cancer cells, and the multitude of innovative molecular targeting approaches that are actively being pursued to achieve selective activation of cell death in human malignancies.

    The brain is a complex organ formed from billions of neurons. There are thousands of types of neurons, each with a unique morphology, function, gene expression profile and pattern of connectivity. This structure poses a very interesting developmental challenge: how do neurons acquire unique identities and connect to specific partner neurons during development? The Drosophila antennal lobe presents an attractive genetic model system in which to investigate these questions. In the antennal lobe, olfactory receptor neuron (ORN) axons project to glomeruli where they synapse with their partner projection neuron (PN) dendrites. These connections are highly stereotyped, as ORNs expressing the same odorant receptor converge on the same glomerulus and all PNs of the same class send their dendrites to the same glomerulus. Cell surface molecules are known to be crucial to instructing this specific wiring during development, and a transcriptional code likely dictates which cells express a particular cell surface molecule. However, the identities of many of these cell surface molecules and transcription factors remain unknown, and it is possible that additional cell types also inform the specific wiring of PNs and ORNs. In this thesis, I present work that furthers our understanding of the development and function of the fly olfactory circuit. First, I discuss a detailed characterization of local interneurons in the antennal lobe, dramatically expanding our basic knowledge of the types of cells present during development as well as central to information processing in the antennal lobe. Second, I present my work on the transcription factor longitudinals lacking (lola) that plays a role both in fate determination and wiring specificity of olfactory projection neurons, the second order cells that relay olfactory information to higher brain centers. Finally, I present an analysis of the regulatory elements driving expression of the projection neuron marker GH146 as a first step in defining transcriptional regulatory modules and identifying factors that may direct fate and wiring decisions in PNs.

    The book considers signaling events from the zygote embryo through to the blastocyst with relevant data from embryonic stem (ES) cells, including dialogue with the extracellular environment and with the maternal tract during the implantation process. Application of the knowledge described to improve the success of human and animal assisted conception is considered where appropriate, but the focus is largely on fundamental rather than applied cell/molecular biology, as this is the area that has historically been neglected. While the general features of metabolism during preimplantation development are well established, especially in terms of nutrient requirements, uptake and fate, remarkably little is known about early embryo signaling events, intracellular or intercellular, between individual embryos in vitro or with the female reproductive tract in vivo. This contrasts with the wealth of information on cell signaling in somatic cells and tissues, as a glance at any textbook of biochemistry illustrates. This lack of information is such that our understanding of the molecular cell biology of early embryos -- a prerequisite to defining the mechanisms which regulate development at this critical stage of the life cycle -- is seriously incomplete. This volume is the first to address this issue by describing the current state of knowledge on cell signaling during mammalian early embryo development and highlighting priority areas for research.

    Neurons are interconnected with extraordinary precision to allow proper propagation and integration of neural activities. The organization of these specific connections emerges from sequential developmental events, including axon guidance, target selection, and synapse formation. Compared to axon guidance, little is known about how selection and matching between pre- and post-synaptic partners are achieved. To ensure the proper relay of olfactory information in flies, axons of ~50 classes of olfactory receptor neurons (ORNs) form one-to-one connections with dendrites of ~50 classes of projection neurons (PNs). Previous developmental analysis has shown that PN dendrites first target to specific areas within the developing antennal lobe to create a proto-map. This is followed by ORN axon invasion into the antennal lobe. However, it is unclear (1) how PNs target their dendrites to specific areas and (2) how ORN axons subsequently recognize PN dendrites to form highly specific one-to-one connections. To address the first question, I conducted a genetic screen to identify new genes involved in PN dendrite targeting. I identified Capricious, a leucine-rich repeat transmembrane protein that is differentially expressed in different PN classes. Loss- and gain-of-function studies indicate that Capricious instructs the segregation of Capricious-positive and negative PN dendrites to discrete glomerular targets. Moreover, the function of Capricious in regulating PN dendrite targeting is independent of pre-synaptic ORNs. The closely related protein Tartan plays a partially redundant function with Capricious. Therefore, these leucine-rich repeat proteins instruct targeting of PN dendrites to discrete glomeruli in the antennal lobe. To address the second question, we designed highly sensitive and robust assays to examine the matching and mismatching between PNs and ORNs. This allowed me to perform two unbiased screens, which independently identified two Teneurins, Ten-m and Ten-a, as synaptic matching molecules. Teneurins are EGF repeat-containing transmembrane proteins that are evolutionarily conserved from worms to mammals. Drosophila Teneurins, Ten-m and Ten-a, are highly expressed in select PN and ORN matching pairs. Loss- and gain-of-function of Teneurins cause specific mismatching of ORN axons and PN dendrites. Moreover, Teneurins promote homophilic interactions in vitro, and homophilically mediate trans-cellular interactions to promote PN-ORN attraction in vivo. Therefore, I propose that Teneurins instruct synaptic matching specificity between PNs and ORNs through homophilic attraction. The identification of Teneurins reveals a general mechanism for determining synapse specificity directly between pre- and post-synaptic neurons. In summary, I have identified two major mechanisms for the stepwise assembly of the olfactory circuit. In the first step, PN dendrites target to specific, discrete glomerular locations in the antennal lobe through a pair of leucine-rich repeat transmembrane proteins, Capricious and Tartan. Subsequently, ORN axons arrive at the antennal lobe, and recognize PN dendrites through homophilic attractions mediated by a pair of EGF repeat-containing transmembrane proteins, Ten-m and Ten-a. These molecules and underlying mechanisms not only help mechanistically understand the olfactory circuit assembly but also elucidate the general principles by which wiring specificity is established.

    Stroke remains one of the main causes of death and disability worldwide. Effective therapy for stroke recovery remains an unmet need. Much hope and promises are placed on cell-based therapies. The aim of this book is to provide focused yet comprehensive reviews on the current state of cell-based approaches in the treatment of stroke. The topics covered include experimental data on functional outcome after intravascular and intracerebral delivery of cells in stroke animals, followed by translational chapters which will rely heavily on the use of different imaging modalities in the tracking of cells. The last and most challenging part will describe the early phase of clinical studies, providing guidelines for future research and clinical applications. Clearly and concisely written, this text will be a useful resource for neurologists, radiologists, and neuroscientists interested in cell transplantation as a therapeutic strategy for stroke patients.

    Protein-protein interactions such as ligand-receptor interactions mediate cell signaling and can be used to control and modulate cell behavior. Despite their effectiveness in natural settings, protein ligands require optimization of properties such as homogeneity, lack of immunogenicity, potency, or stability to be used in therapeutic applications. Multiple combinatorial and rational protein engineering techniques have been developed to improve therapeutic proteins. However, these methods have been limited by the lack of a robust, high-throughput system for the expression of complex mammalian proteins. In this dissertation, cell-free protein synthesis (CFPS) was applied to fill this void, and the potential of this approach was demonstrated with epidermal growth factor (EGF). EGF binds to the EGF receptor (EGFR) and stimulates cell proliferation, migration, and differentiation. EGF has been pursued for wound healing and tissue engineering applications, thus EGF mutants with enhanced biochemical and biophysical properties are of great biomedical interest. The primary goal of this thesis research was to create a directed evolution platform to screen protein libraries based on biological function, an objective not feasible with other protein engineering approaches. We developed methods to fully express mutated protein libraries and to determine the efficacy of each individual member by employing a high-throughput protein product assay followed by a cell-based functional assay conducted with uniform dosage. Using this platform, we discovered the first known EGF mutants with enhanced mitogenic activity compared to wild-type EGF despite many previous attempts. These mutants bound EGFR with approximately ten-fold weaker binding affinity than wild-type EGF and reduced depletion of soluble EGF and cell surface EGFR when cells were treated with EGF. Second, we employed CFPS to rapidly characterize an array of EGF mutants and rationally engineered mutants with ideal biochemical properties for EGFR activation. It is important to note that all of these studies can be carried out without the need for protein purification from the CFPS reaction mixture, significantly increasing the number of mutants that can be analyzed. Finally, we site-specifically incorporated non-natural amino acids into EGF by CFPS and demonstrated accessibility by conjugating EGF to polyethylene glycol (PEG), a polymer that has been shown to improve protein retention and stability. These improvements to EGF highlight the advantages of cell-free methods compared to other protein engineering strategies, and advance EGF's potential for therapeutic use. Furthermore, the techniques developed here can be extended to improve the biological efficacy of other clinically-relevant proteins.

    The genetic, molecular, and cellular mechanisms of neural development are essential for understanding evolution and disorders of neural systems. Recent advances in genetic, molecular, and cell biological methods have generated a massive increase in new information, but there is a paucity of comprehensive and up-to-date syntheses, references, and historical perspectives on this important subject. The Comprehensive Developmental Neuroscience series is designed to fill this gap, offering the most thorough coverage of this field on the market today and addressing all aspects of how the nervous system and its components develop. Particular attention is paid to the effects of abnormal development and on new psychiatric/neurological treatments being developed based on our increased understanding of developmental mechanisms. Each volume in the series consists of review style articles that average 15-20pp and feature numerous illustrations and full references. Volume 2 offers 56 high level articles devoted mainly to Formation of Axons and Dendrites, Migration, Synaptogenesis, Developmental Sequences in the Maturation of Intrinsic and Synapse Driven Patterns. Series offers 144 articles for 2904 full color pages addressing ways in which the nervous system and its components developFeatures leading experts in various subfields as Section Editors and article AuthorsAll articles peer reviewed by Section Editors to ensure accuracy, thoroughness, and scholarshipVolume 2 sections include coverage of mechanisms which regulate: the formation of axons and dendrites, cell migration, synapse formation and maintenance during development, and neural activity, from cell-intrinsic maturation to early correlated patterns of activity.

    "All biological phenomena emerge from an intricate interconnection of multiple processes occurring at different levels of organization: namely, at the molecular, the cellular and the tissue level, see Figure 1. These natural levels can approximately be connected to a microscopic, mesoscopic, and macroscopic scale, respectively. The microscopic scale refers to those processes that occur at the subcellular level, such as DNA synthesis and duplication, gene dynamics, activation of receptors, transduction of chemical signals, diffusion of ions and transport of proteins. The mesoscopic scale, on the other hand, can refer to cell-level phenomena, such as adhesive interactions between cells or between cells and ECM components, cell duplication and death and cell motion. The macroscopic scale finally corresponds to those processes that are typical of multicellular behavior, such as population dynamics, tissue mechanics and organ growth and development. It is evident that research in biology and medicine needs to work in a multiscale fashion. This brings many challenging questions and a complexity that can not be addressed in the classical way, but can take advantage of the increasing collaboration between natural and exact sciences (for more detailed comments the reader is referred to [90, 262]). On the other hand, the recent literature provides evidence of the increasing attention of the mathematical, statistical, computational and physical communities toward biological and biomedical modeling, consequence of the successful results obtained by a multidisciplinary approach to the Life Sciences problems"-- Provided by publisher.

    Sarason, Seymour Bernard.
    As people live longer and health care costs continue to rise and fewer doctors choose to specialize in geriatrics, how prepared is the United States to care for its sick and elderly? According to veteran psychologist Seymour Sarason's eloquent and compelling new book, the answer is: inadequately at best. And rarely discussed among the grim statistics is the psychosocial price paid by nursing home patients, from loneliness and isolation to depression and dependency. In "Centers for Ending", Dr. Sarason uses his firsthand experience as both practitioner and patient in senior facilities.

    Respiration is one of the most basic motor activities crucial for survival of the individual. It is under total control of the central nervous system, which adjusts respiratory depth and frequency depending on the circumstances the individual finds itself. For this reason this volume not only reviews the basic control systems of respiration, located in the caudal brainstem, but also the higher brain regions, that change depth and frequency of respiration. Scientific knowledge of these systems is crucial for understanding the problems in the many patients suffering from respiratory failure.

    "The field of critical care medicine is in the midst of a dramatic change. Technological and scientific advances during the last decade have resulted in a fundamental change in the way we view disease processes, such as sepsis, shock, acute lung injury, and traumatic brain injury. Pediatric intensivists have been both witness to and active participants in bringing about these changes and it is imperative that all physicians caring for critically ill children in this new era have a thorough understanding of the applicability of these modern developments to the care of patients at the bedside and to keep up with the rapidly evolving field of critical care medicine. Neurologic emergencies are a common reason for admission to the pediatric intensive care unit (PICU). A thorough understanding of the diseases and disorders affecting the pediatric central nervous system is vital for any physician or health care provider working in the PICU. The Central Nervous System in Pediatric Critical Illness and Injury has been written by an international panel of experts to provide readers with an in-depth discussion on the resuscitation, stabilization, and ongoing care of the critically ill or injured child with central nervous system dysfunction. This book is therefore absolutely crucial for anyone working in the PICU, from physicians, residents and fellows in critical care, neurology, and pediatrics to specialist nurses and support personnel on the PICU and all medical professionals who are involved in the management of these patients."--Publisher's website.
