The book follows drug design from the initial lead identification through optimization and structure-activity relationship with reference to the final processes of clinical evaluation and registration. Chapters investigate the design of enzyme inhibitors and drugs for particular cellular targets such as ion channels and receptors, and also explore specific classes of drug such as peptidomimetics, antivirals and anticancer agents. The use of gene technology in pharmaceutical research, computer modeling techniques, and combinatorial approaches are also included.
Mit dem Blick auf die Feinstrukturen werden die Innenräume der Zellen und ihre Architekturen in der höheren Organisation der Gewebe lebendig. Die Autoren geben mit diesem Atlas der funktionellen Ultrastruktur Einblick in die komplexe zelluläre Innenwelt mit ihren vielgestaltigen Funktionsräumen, sowie in dynamische Funktionsabläufe, die für die Erfüllung der zellulären Aufgaben im Gewebe notwendig sind. Das besondere Anliegen besteht darin, dem Leser bewusst zu machen, dass es sich hier um diejenigen Strukturen handelt, in denen sich grundlegende zelluläre Lebensvorgänge und krankmachende Mechanismen abspielen. An Hand elektronenmikroskopischer Bilder, ergänzt durch Immunelektronenmikroskopie und ausführlicher Beschreibung werden in den Zellen die Beziehungen zwischen Strukturen und Funktionen aufgerollt, Details herausgearbeitet und die Organisation in den Zellverbänden der Gewebe präsentiert. Das Buch wendet sich an Medizin- und Naturwissenschaftsstudenten, Ärzte, Biologen, Zell- und Molekularbiologen.

The Cell: Biochemistry, Physiology, Morphology, Volume I focuses on the advancements of processes, techniques, and approaches used in studies on the structure and functions of cells. The selection first offers information on the optical methods in cytology, fixation and staining, and autoradiography. Discussions focus on microscopical analysis, techniques related to autoradiography, staining for electron microscopy and light microscopy, fixation, electron microscope in cytology, and X-ray microscopy of cells. The text then takes a look at the quantitative microscopical techniques for single cells and quantitative microchemical techniques of histo- and cytochemistry. The manuscript ponders on micrurgical studies on living cells, isolation of subcellular components, and "tissue culture," cellular autonomy, and cellular interrelations. Topics include standardization procedures, factors influencing the choice of isolation procedure, future applications and extensions of micrurgy, and applications of micrurgy to the study of living cells. The effects of radiations on cells, acquisition of biological specificity, and nucleocytoplasmic interactions in eggs and embryos are also discussed. The selection is a dependable reference for researchers interested in pursuing further studies on the biochemistry, physiology, and morphology of cells.
