Comprehensive Gene Regulation, Epigenetics and Hormone Signaling Reference Guide 2017 - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--()--The "Gene Regulation, Epigenetics and Hormone Signaling" book from John Wiley and Sons Ltd has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

The first of its kind, this reference gives a comprehensive but concise introduction to epigenetics before covering the many interactions between hormone regulation and epigenetics at all levels. The contents are very well structured with no overlaps between chapters, and each one features supplementary material for use in presentations. Throughout, major emphasis is placed on pathological conditions, aiming at the many physiologists and developmental biologists who are familiar with the importance and mechanisms of hormone regulation but have a limited background in epigenetics.

Key Topics Covered:

1 Eukaryotic Gene Expression by RNA Polymerase II

2 Epigenetic Code: Histone Modification, Gene Regulation, and Chromatin Dynamics

3 Histone Lysine Methylation, Demethylation, and Hormonal Gene Regulation

4 The Role of HATs and HDACs in Cell Physiology and Disease

5 The Short and Medium Stories of Noncoding RNAs: microRNA and siRNA

6 Long Noncoding RNA (lncRNA): Functions in Health and Disease

7 Histone Variants: Structure, Function, and Implication in Diseases

8 Genomic Imprinting in Mammals: Origin and Complexity of an Epigenetically Regulated Phenomenon

9 Centromere and Kinetochore: Essential Components for Chromosome Segregation

10 Nuclear Receptors and NR-coregulators: Mechanism of Action and Cell Signaling

11 Estrogen and Progesterone Receptor Signaling and Action

12 Gonadal Steroid Hormones and Brain Protection

13 Glucocorticoid Receptor-Mediated Signaling and Stress Metabolism

14 Targeting Androgen Signaling in Prostate Cancer

15 Role of Peroxisome Proliferator-Activated Receptors in Inflammation and Angiogenesis

16 RAR/RXR-Mediated Signaling

17 On the Trail of Thyroid Hormone Receptor Epigenetics

18 Insulin Signaling, Epigenetics, and Human Diseases

19 Endocrine Disruptors and Epigenetics

20 Endocrine Disruptors: Mechanism of Action and Impacts on Health and Environment
