Transcription Factors in the Nervous System: Development, Brain Function, and Diseases by Gerald Thiel
Publisher: Wiley-VCH; 1 edition (March 6, 2006) | ISBN: 3527312854 | Pages: 505 | PDF | 6.69 MB
This first book to cover neural development, neuronal survival and function on the genetic level outlines promising approaches for novel therapeutic strategies in fighting neurodegenerative disorders, such as Alzheimer's disease. Focusing on transcription factors, the text is clearly divided into three sections devoted to transcriptional control of neural development, brain function and transcriptional dysregulation induced neurological diseases. With a chapter written by Nobel laureate Eric Kandel, this is essential reading for neurobiologists, geneticists, biochemists, cell biologists, neurochemists and molecular biologists.
