Beschreibung


Die "study edition" des erfolgreichen Bandes 102 des "Handbook of Experimental Pharmacology" vermittelt einen umfassenden Überblick über die Topographie und das Verhalten von Neurotoxinen auf molekularer Ebene. Anhand neuester Erkenntnisse auf dem Gebiet der molekularen Neurobiologie werden die Mechanismen der Selektivität der verschiedenen Neurotoxine in verständlicher Weise dargestellt.

Following the overwhelmingly successful response to the first printing in hardcover, the hottest topics in Selective Neurotoxicity are now available in this special softcover edition".
Researchers are provided with well-grounded information on the cellular and subcellular targets of neurotoxins and their mode of action at the level of ion-channels, receptors and neurotransmitters. The use of bacterial toxins as a tool in neuroscientific research is an important aspect in this context. The chapters that interest clinicians as well deal with protective barriers in the peripheral and central nervous system and metabolic disorders that cause neurotoxins to be built up in the human body. The induction of tumors by neuroptropic carcinogens is included.

Based on recent progress in neurobioloigy, the hottest topics in this field are discussed in depth! Researchers are provided with well-grounded information on the cellular and subcellular targets of neurotoxins and their mode of action on the level of ion-channels, receptors and neurotransmitters. The use of bacterial toxins as a tool in neuroscientific research is an important aspect in this context. Chapters that are of interest to clinicians as well deal with protective barriers in the peripheral and central nervous system, and metabolic disorders causing neurotxins to be built in the human body. The induction of tumors by neurotropic carcinogens is also included.
