Advances in Biological and Medical Physics, Volume 17 covers articles on the advances in biological and medical physics. The book presents articles on energy transfer dynamics; the molecular mechanism of DNA repair after ionizing radiation; and mechanisms of prereplication repair of DNA breaks in gamma-irradiated E. coli cells.
The text then describes articles about damages to DNA that result in neoplastic transformation; the nature of radiation and chemically-induced lesions and the role of cellular mechanisms in cell survival and mutagenesis; as well as the nature of the target in the biological action of ionizing radiation. The gated detection and analysis of nanosecond pulse excitation and the time-profile multicomponent analysis using nonintrusive mass spectrometry are also considered.
The book further tackles the technique of acoustic microscopy in biophysics and the use of electron spin echo spectroscopy in the study of biological structure and function. The text also describes radiation as an oncogen and as a cocarcinogen at the cellular level and speculates on some possible molecular and cellular mechanisms of radiocarcinogenesis.
Biological and medical physicists, biologists, and chemists will find the book invaluable.
