Viruses are obligate intracellular parasites that need to co-opt a living cell’s machinery for replication. At the heart of the viral replication machinery are the nucleic acid polymerases, which are responsible for efficiently copying the viral genome. This process must often be coordinated with other viral processes, including protein translation and viral packaging. The polymerases and other components of the replication machinery may serve as potential anti-viral targets.Section 1 of this book is devoted to the basic structure–function relationships of viral nucleic acid polymerases and related proteins. Section 2 then discusses how interactions between the viral polymerase and viral nucleic acids and other proteins help to coordinate nucleic acid synthesis and other important viral processes. Section 3 builds on this discussion by including the roles of host proteins in these processes. Many viruses also co-opt host lipid membranes to provide more conducive environments for RNA synthesis and virus replication, which is discussed in Section 4. Finally, many of the processes discussed in the preceding sections are potential antiviral drug targets, which is discussed in Section 5.

    Monoclonal antibodies are established in clinical practice for the treatment of cancer, and autoimmune and infectious diseases. The first generation of antibodies has been dominated by classical IgG antibodies, however, in the last decade, the field has advanced, and, nowadays, a large proportion of antibodies in development have been engineered.  This Special Issue on "Monoclo...

  • Metal Metabolism in Animals
    Reinhard Dallinger
    Through evolution of life, animals have adapted to the ubiquitous presence of metals in the biosphere. They utilize the more frequent ones as essential constituents of their biochemical machinery. In fact, about 40% of all proteins present in animal cells are so-called metalloproteins. On the other hand, animals have invented regulatory and detoxifying mechanisms to protect the...

  • The Biology and Treatment of Myeloid Leukaemias
    There has been an observed decrease in the global mortality from cancer, mostly atributable to improved, particularly early, detection and prevention. For many carcinomas and leukaemias in adults, once the disease has reached a certain stage there are no therapies that are able to erradicate the cancer cells and cure patients. There has been progress in the treatment of acute m...

  • The Epithelialto- Mesenchymal Transition ( EMT ) in Cancer
    Joëlle Roche
    The epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) is a highly dynamic process with multiple transitional states, by which epithelial cells can convert into a mesenchymal phenotype. This process involves loss of cellular adhesion and cellular polarity, and an improvement in migratory and invasive properties. It occurs during normal embryonic development, tissue regeneration, organ ...

    This edited book brings together research reports on the asymmetry of brain function in various species, including humans, dogs, birds, lizards and bees. As shown in a wide range of species, and, as we now know, not solely in humans, the left and right sides of the brain process information in different ways and control different responses or patterns of behaviour. Since this d...
