Foundation to Membrane Biochemistry provides the reader with and integrated and up-to-date covering of basic membrane biochemistry. It gives a details account of both basic knowledge on the composition of membrane as well as providing the reader with insight to the basis of the different type of molecular transaction they are involved in. The structural models of the cell membrane usually dreaded by most students is presented here in a simplified manner. Also provided is a comprehensive and authoritative overview of such areas as the biosynthesis of membrane components, cell membrane junctions, transport across biological membranes, cell receptors, signal transduction, electron transport chain and oxidative phosphorylation.
This book provides the reader with a comprehensive and authoritative insight of the whole field of modern immunology and immunochemistry and its ramifications into such areas as genetics, transplantation, cancer and infectious diseases. It differs from other textbooks in that there is emphasis on principles of immunochemical techniques. An attempt has also been made to explain the often-complex phenomena of immunology and immunochemistry in terms of simple underlying concepts. This book is definitely an asset to the students and lecturers who wish to acquaint themselves with immunology and immunochemistry
This manual is designed to provide advanced biochemistry students a better understanding of biochemical methods such chromatography, electrophoresis, dialysis etc., which are discussed during lectures. These techniques are part of modern biochemistry and the rapidly growing field of cell and molecular biology and biotechnology. The selected experiments in this manual are aimed at enabling both undergraduate and postgraduate students to become familiar with biochemical methods and the use of laboratory equipment in preparation for their research projects. Each section of the manual begins with a brief background meant to refresh the reader’s memory of the theory discussed in the classroom.
In this chapter, a review of anti-malaria drugs combinations manufacturers and slogans used in Nigeria is smartly presented. Despite this myriad of drugs in their various combinations and permutations it has remained a challenge to completely overcome or eradicate the disease in Africa. A painstaking elucidation of the various drugs and their limitations (including resistance) used in the fight against malaria down the history lane from quinine and related agents to the artemisinin based combinations is presented. From the above the author opined that the best way to fight this disease will be to first eradicate the vector by all means.
