By Helen A. Padykula (auth.), Wendell W. Leavitt (eds.)

The papers during this quantity have been offered on the Symposium on mobilephone Biology of the Uterus held December 12, 1986, at the NIH campus, Bethesda, MD. This was once the 1st of a sequence of conferences that might be held in con­ junction with the once a year assembly of the yankee Society for telephone Biology. The uterus is now well-known as an exceptionally complicated organ whose nor­ mal functionality is orchestrated by means of a fragile procession of mobile and molecular occasions that investigators are commencing to resolve for the 1st time. strong new analytical equipment and the instruments of molecular biology at the moment are supplying intriguing breakthroughs in our uncomplicated figuring out of uterine constitution and serve as. hence, this system of this assembly used to be or­ ganized to hide fresh advancements in uterine telephone biology together with the mechanism of hormone motion, keep an eye on of gene expression by way of nuclear acceptor websites and nuclear receptors, function of development components, endometrial mobilephone kine­ tics in the course of the menstrual cycle, law of particular protein synthesis and secretion, decidual mobilephone functionality, and the function of early being pregnant seasoned­ teins. the cloth provided during this quantity is anxious not just with how hormones and development components arrange the endometrium for implantation of the blastocyst, however it additionally info the hot characterization and id of particular marker proteins secreted based on hormone motion and early pregnancy.

Bacterial Toxins: Methods and Protocols

The curiosity of investigators throughout a extensive spectrum of clinical dis- plines has been progressively inspired by way of the sector of bacterial toxin study, a space that uses a wide number of organic, chemical, physicochemical, and medically orientated techniques. Researchers learning bacterial pollution must be accustomed to a lot of these disciplines so one can paintings successfully within the box.

Apoptosis

Quantity 322 of tools in Enzymology is devoted to apoptosis. significant themes coated comprise measuring apoptosis and apoptosis-induced endonucleases, measuring apoptosis in decrease organisms, proteases thinking about apoptosis and their inhibitors, phone unfastened structures for tracking steps in apoptosis pathways, mitochondria and apoptosis, bCl-2 kin proteins, and learning receptors and sign transduction occasions implicated in telephone survival and mobilephone dying.

Molecular Biology of Chromosome Function

Chromosomes have constitution, decided by way of the interactions of proteins with DNA, and chromosomes have capabilities, particularly, replication of DNA and transcription of messenger RNA. Chromosome constitution and serve as are usually not separate subject matters, in view that chromosome association seasoned­ foundly impacts the task of the genome in replication and transcrip­ tion.

The chronology of the above events after injection of radio1abe11ed steroid is as follows: Steroid-receptor complex formation (1 min), nuclear acceptor sites (2 min) which peaks at ~10-20 minutes, effects on mRNA levels (y, to 3 hr), and finally the changing protein profiles via changes in protein synthesis and protein turnover (4 to 24 hr) (5,6). Thus, steroid receptors represent one of the first identified intracellular gene regulatory proteins. The receptor molecules themselves are regulated by the presence or absence of the steroid molecule.
