Description

This volume may be divided into three groups of contributors. The first five chapters deal with polypeptides: GnRG receptor and apoptotic signaling; structure and function of the growth hormone-releasing hormone receptor; regulators of growth hormone signaling; and the EGF domain--requirements for binding the receptors to the Erb-B family enkephalin-cell interaction. The next three manuscripts cover the steroid receptor gene family emphasizing structure, expression and action: studies on structure activity relationships of retinoic acid receptor ligands by means of molecular modelling; glucocorticoid-regulated gene expression during cutaneous wound repair; and dioxin action, hormone action and endocrine homeostasis. The final three chapters cover leptin receptors and vitamins: control of food intake via leptin receptors in the hypothalamus; Vitamin E and immunity; and Transcobalamin II and its cell surface receptor.

Readership

Researchers, faculty, and graduate students interested in cutting-edge reviews concerning the molecular and cellular biology of vitamins, hormones, and related factors and co-factors, libraries and laboratories at institutions with strong programs in cell biology, biochemistry, molecular biology, gene regulation, hormone control, and signal transduction.

About the Editor-in-Chiefs

Gerald Litwack Editor-in-Chief

Dr. Gerald Litwack obtained M.S. and PhD degrees from the University of Wisconsin Department of Biochemistry and remained there for a brief time as a Lecturer on Enzymes. Then he entered the Biochemical Institute of the Sorbonne as a Fellow of the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis. He next moved to Rutgers University as an Assistant Professor of Biochemistry and later as Associate Professor of biochemistry at the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Medicine. After four years he moved to the Temple University School of Medicine as Professor of Biochemistry and Deputy Director of the Fels Institute for Cancer Research and Molecular Biology, soon after, becoming the Laura H. Carnell Professor. Subsequently he was appointed chair of Biochemistry and Molecular Pharmacology at the Jefferson Medical College as well as Vice Dean for Research and Deputy Director of the Jefferson Cancer Institute and Director of the Institute for Apoptosis. Following the move of his family, he became a Visiting Scholar at the Department of Biological Chemistry of the Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and then became the Founding Chair of the Department of Basic Sciences at the Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine, becoming Professor of Molecular and Cellular Medicine and Associate Director of the Institute for Regenerative Medicine at the Texas A&M Health Science Center as his final position. During his career he was a visiting scientist at the University of California, San Francisco and Berkeley, Courtauld Institute of Biochemistry, London and the Wistar Institute. He was appointed Emeritus Professor and/or Chair at Rutgers University, Thomas Jefferson University and the Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine. He has published more than 300 scientific papers, authored three textbooks and edited more than sixty-five books. Currently he lives with his family and continues his authorship and editorial work in Los Angeles.
