EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Written by leaders in the field of chemosensation, Chemosensory Transduction provides a comprehensive resource for understanding the molecular mechanisms that allow animals to detect their chemical world. The text focuses on mammals, but also includes several chapters on chemosensory transduction mechanisms in lower vertebrates and insects. This book examines transduction mechanisms in the olfactory, taste, and somatosensory (chemesthetic) systems as well as in a variety of internal sensors that are responsible for homeostatic regulation of the body. Chapters cover such topics as social odors in mammals, vertebrate and invertebrate olfactory receptors, peptide signaling in taste and gut nutrient sensing.

Biology Of The Chemotactic Response
Author: Society for General Microbiology. Symposium
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Release Date: 1990
Pages: 404
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The tendency of a living organism to move to a more favourable environment is a natural but complex reaction, involving the integration of sometimes conflicting environmental stimuli as well as a coordinated mechanical response. The response of motile, single cell organisms to environmental stimuli provides a useful model for understanding first of all how the environment is monitored and sensed, and secondly how this information is processed to result in an integrated and coordinated response. The volume looks at a large number of well-studied examples of the chemotactic response, in prokaryotes and eukaryotes, and casts new light on how cells process information and react to their environment. This fundamental response is of great importance in understanding one of the characteristic features of living organisms.
