EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Approximately ten years have elapsed since the second volume of the International Life Sciences Institute (ILSI) Monographs on Pathology of Laboratory Animals, Respiratory System, was first completed. New in formation of interest to pathologists has developed at a rather remark able pace during these years. Exceptional progress has been made in the routine identification of enzymes and cell products in respiratory cells. A better understanding has developed on the functions of cells of the respiratory tract and of the mechanisms involved in cell metabolism, particularly those involving toxins and carcinogens. Clear concepts have developed concerning the significance of pathologic lesions, particularly in the upper respiratory tract and their relation to human health and risk assessment. Standardized nomenclature has developed significantly dur ing the lO-year period since the first edition and is being utilized on an international basis. This has resulted in significant improvement in com munication of pathologic data to regulatory agencies and in scientific publications worldwide. This monograph series and others sponsored by ILSI have had significant effects on these improved communications and the international acceptance of standardized nomenclature. In this sec ond edition, new formats have been used where more appropriate for the subjects to be covered.

The Uteroglobin Clara Cell Protein Family

Release Date: 2000
Pages: 358
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The discovery of this family of proteins three decades ago launched a broad range of research effort that now reaches across many potential applications in human reproductive biology, inflammatory diseases, endocrinology, and in oncology. These proceedings papers extend the new function research possibilities inherent in the structure of this steroid-inducible, multifunctional secreted protein, and in the UG-bioactive-derived peptides. An opening overview of the UG family focuses on mammaglobin and its implications with human breast cancer; the sequence/structure sections review applications of antiflammin responses from its peptide. Other sections present new research on regulation of uteroglobin genes by cytokines and hormones; and clinical applications for renal diseases, in targeting gene therapy in pulmonary disease. Together, these developments raise the possibility of cytokine/chemokine-like functions that play important roles in major public health problems. A consensus of nomenclature for Uteroglobin/Clara Cell 10kDa family of proteins is also advanced as a step to coordinating new areas of research for these promising proteins and receptors.
