G Protein-Coupled Receptors: Structure, Signaling, and Physiology By Sandra Siehler, Graeme Milligan

  • Publisher: Cambridge University Press
  • Number Of Pages: 458
  • Publication Date: 2010-09-30
  • ISBN-10 / ASIN: 0521112087
  • ISBN-13 / EAN: 9780521112086
Product Description:
This text provides a comprehensive overview of recent discoveries and current understandings of G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs). Recent advances include the first mammalian non-rhodopsin GPCR structures and reconstitution of purified GPCRs into membrane discs for defined studies, novel signaling features including oligomerization, and advances in understanding the complex ligand pharmacology and physiology of GPCRs, in new assay technologies and drug targeting. The first chapters of this book illustrate the history of GPCRs based on distinct species and genomic information. This is followed by discussion of the homo- and hetero-oligomerization features of GPCRs, including receptors for glutamate, GABAB, dopamine, and chemokines. Several chapters are devoted to the key signaling features of GPCRs. The authors take time to detail the importance of the pathophysiological function and drug targeting of GPCRs, specifically -adrenoceptors in cardiovascular and respiratory diseases, metabotropic glutamate receptors in CNS disorders, S1P receptors in the immune system, and Wnt/Frizzled receptors in osteoporosis. This book will be invaluable to researchers and graduate students in academia and industry who are interested in the GPCR field.

This third edition is now a two-volume, full color text led by Dr. Tomashefksi, as Editor-in-Chief and Drs. Cagle, Farver, and Fraire as Associate Editors. The new editorial board has continued to build upon the excellence Dail and Hammar achieved in the previous editions by reorganizing, expanding and substantially revising the text. This authoritative reference work has been thoroughly updated to cover newly recognized entities and the latest advances in molecular diagnostic techniques. Abundantly illustrated with more than 2000 full color illustrations. This outstanding contribution to pathology literature is a must-have for the library of every surgical and pulmonary pathologist.
Dail and Hammar s Pulmonary Pathology has set the standard for which all other pathology texts strive to achieve. From stellar reviews of the Second Edition:
“When the first edition of Pulmonary Pathology by David H. Dail and Samuel P. Hammar was published in 1988, it was clear that it was to become the reference book for pulmonary pathology. It was difficult to conceive then that a better book on the subject could be assembled. The second edition of this encyclopedic work proved convincingly that improvement could occur. Indeed, the new revised edition is more complete and better illustrated…I consider this book to be an outstanding contribution to the pathology literature and a must in the library of surgical and pulmonary pathologists.” — Human Pathology

Arterial Blood Gas Interpretation

Now respiratory therapists and nurses can benefit from an all new programthat provides them with a strong foundation in this essential aspect of respiratory care. Using an interactive format, the program teaches the principles of ABGs, sampling techniques (including insertion of arterial lines), and gas transport concepts, as well as potential errors that may occur in sampling, handling, storing and transporting a specimen--errors that can affect blood gas results. Best of all, learners get to apply what they've learned through case studies that call upon them to interpret a variety of data. This program offers essential concepts for understanding and interpreting blood gas findings that have an impact on interventions and patient outcomes. You will appreciate the logical organization of the material, and the clear presentation of complex concepts in a dynamic multimedia experience. Units cover the following topics: Physico-chemical principles of blood gas parameters; arterial cannulation; arterial punctures; pre-analytic errors; and clinical application of blood gas interpretation.

National Board Dental Examination

The level of government responsible for licensure is the US state, district or dependency. A license issued by one such jurisdiction is applicable only within the geographic confines of that particular jurisdiction. Agencies in state government that administer dental licensure under laws adopted by state legislatures typically are called state boards of dentistry.
Specific dental licensure requirements vary among jurisdictions, but all jurisdictions have three types of requirements: an educational requirement, a written examination requirement and a clinical examination requirement. All jurisdictions accept graduates of dental schools accredited directly by the Commission on Dental Accreditation of the American Dental Association as fulfilling the educational requirement. Most jurisdictions also accept graduates of Canadian dental schools that are accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation of Canada.
The National Board Dental Examination is intended to fulfill or partially fulfill the written examination requirements, but acceptance of National Board scores is completely at the discretion of the individual state. A state may place any limit on acceptance of National Board scores that it deems appropriate. For example, some states accept National Board scores only if earned within the last 10 or 15 years.

The Joint Commission on National Dental Examinations is the agency responsible for the development and administration of the National Board Dental Examinations. This 15-member Commission includes representatives of dental schools, dental practice, state dental examining boards, dental hygiene, dental students, and the public. A standing committee of the Joint Commission includes other dentists who act as consultants regarding this Examination.

Clinical examinations are conducted by individual state boards of dentistry or by regional dental testing agencies. A regional agency, often called a regional board, is a group of state boards that develops and administers a clinical examination jointly.

Purpose of the National Board Dental Examinations

The purpose of the National Board Dental Examination is to assist state boards in determining qualifications of dentists who seek licensure to practice dentistry. The examination assesses the ability to understand important information from basic biomedical and dental sciences and also the ability to apply such information in a problem-solving context.

Recognition of the National Board Dental Examination Scores

Although written examinations may be developed at the local level, most licensing boards use the National Board Dental Examination (Parts I & II) as a major portion of their written examination requirement. Currently, all 53 United States licensing jurisdictions recognize National Board results. These jurisdictions include all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands of the United States.

The Ophthalmology Examinations Review

The Ophthalmology Examinations Review
By Tien Yin Wong

Publisher: World Scientific Publishing Company | ISBN: 9810243995 | 2001-05 | PDF | 430 pages | 16.8 Mb

This book is targetted at the final year ophthalmology resident taking the specialist ophthalmology exams, and deals primarily with key topics that are important from the examination viewpoint. Only material that is considered relevant to the exams is covered. The book should help the trainee or resident organize and synthesize knowledge acquired from various other sources or textbooks. While not meant to replace the standard textbooks, it contains enough information to serve as the main revision text nearer the exams. The style of the book is didactic, with questions and short answers. The short answers are designed to be repetitive so as to enhance memory. The answer includes a "model opening statement", followed usually by a classification system to aid organization of facts and then by the bulk of the answer in concise notes. "Exam Tips" are inserted to provide insight into how to answer difficult types of questions and, when appropriate, a "Clinical Approach" section is also included. Scattered within the text are hundreds of mnemonics to help the candidate in the final stages of preparation for the exams.
