Cell biology research progress


This volume consists of 21 chapters on molecular chaperones and the biological aspects of this family of proteins, as well as current research on protein folding in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) and the functions of ER-resident molecular chaperones in protein folding of the ER. An international group of contributors working in biological and biomedical sciences and other fields discuss the biochemical, structural, and functional information on redox enzyme maturation proteins; the role of molecular biology research in molecular imaging; applications of molecular imaging in diagnostics, gene therapy, and drug development; the role of protists in the study of adaptive mechanisms at the biochemical and molecular level; different trends in the evolution of molecular adaptations to adverse environmental conditions; and the molecular mechanisms of bicyclol in protection against liver disease.
