Bioelectronics: A Study in Cellular Regulations, Defense, and Cancer examines biological reactions on the electronic level. Chapters in the book discuss topics on the ionization potential and electron affinity; the charge transfer reactions; defense mechanisms of living organisms; and the description of the mechanisms governing the growth and proliferation of cancer cells. Biochemists, oncologists, pharmacologists, and pharmaceutical researchers will find the book invaluable.
