Book Description :

Isoprenoids are important in primary and secondary metabolism. They have implications in a myriad of physiological processes notably in plants, microorganisms and parasites, and biological activities at the cellular, organism, and ecosystem levels. The importance of isoprenoids in various areas of the scientific world has spurred intense research worldwide. Also their role in "nutraceuticals" has stimulated scientific curiosity. Literature on isoprenoids is widely scattered in journals with quite differing readerships and geographic distribution. A comprehensive book on isoprenoids does not exist. Isoprenoid Synthesis in Plants and Microorganisms: New Concepts and Experimental Approaches fills this gap by presenting the latest and the most applicable information on isoprenoids. The most recent TERPNET conference serves as the backdrop and provides much of the inspiration for the topics covered in the book. Additional topics of interest are covered as well, making Isoprenoid Synthesis in Plants and Microorganisms: New Concepts and Experimental Approaches the most comprehensive review of isoprenoid synthesis to date.

This book is the second of two volumes that deal with discovery of chemical pathways of biosynthesis of natural products (secondary metabolites). The first volume covered the use of isotopes in biosynthetic research and the formation of enzyme cofactors and reduced polyketides. This second volume describes biosynthesis of aromatic (unreduced) polyketides, enzymes responsible for cyclization of terpenoids (isoprenoids), and biochemical generation of selected classes of alkaloids (prenylated tryptophan, tropane, pyrrolizidine). Knowledge of the pathways and the techniques to elucidate them opens the door to combinatorial biosynthesis as well as to the production of targeted pharmaceutical agents utilizing a combination of chemistry, molecular biology and protein biochemistry.

Book Description :

In this book, researchers and practitioners working in the field present the major promises of algae biotechnology and they critically discuss the challenges arising from applications. Based on this assessment, the authors explore the great scientific, industrial and economic potential opened up by algae biotechnology. The first part of the book presents recent developments in key enabling technologies, which are the driving force to unleash the enormous potential of algae biotechnology. The second part of the book focuses on how practical applications of algae biotechnology may provide new solutions to some of the grand challenges of the 21st century. Algae offer great potential to support the building of a bio-based economy and they can contribute new solutions to some of the grand challenges of the 21st century. Despite significant progress, algae biotechnology is yet far from fulfilling its potential. How to unleash this enormous potential is the challenge that the own field is facing. New cultivation technologies and bioprocess engineering allow for optimization of the operation strategy of state-of the art industrial-scale production systems and they reduce the production costs. Parallel to this, new molecular technologies for genetic and metabolic engineering of (micro)algae develop quickly. The optimization of existing biochemical pathways or the introduction of pathway components makes high-yield production of specific metabolites possible. Novel screening technologies including high-throughput technologies enables testing of extremely large numbers of samples and, thus, allow for large scale modelling of biomolecular processes, which would have not been possible in the past. Moreover, profitable production can demand for integrated biorefining, which combines consecutive processes and various feedstocks to produce both transportation fuel, electric energy and valuable chemicals.

Lettres familieres, v, 12), par Maxime de Tyr (discours IV"), par Philostrate (Vie d'Apollonius, v, 10; Vie des sophistes, preambule), par Themistius (discours III), par St Basile (De la lecture des auteurs paiens, ch. iv). Elle a ete imitee par Lucien (Sur un songe, ch. Vi-xvi), par Philon le juif (Des recompenses), par Silius Italicus (Les Puniques, chant xv). Beaucoup de peintres anciens en firent un sujet de tableau, comme nous l'apprend Philostrate. Xenophon l'avait-il lue dans le livre de Prodicus ou entendue repeter par Socrate? Peut-etre, mais on conjecturerait aussi bien "sans temerite qu'il l'entendit reciter par le sophiste lui-meme. Prisonnier des Thebains vers 395 avant J.C, Xenophon obtint sa liberte sous caution pour assister aux conferences que Prodicus donnait alors a Thebes meme. Douze ou quinze annees plus tot, Aristophane avait fait jouer sur le theatre d'Athenes sa comedie de Plutus; il la refondit et la fit jouer de nouveau en 390. C'est peut-etre dans l'intervalle entre ces deux dates qu'il introduisit dans l'action de sa piece une scene episodique, qui rappelle par quelques traits le debat de la Vertu et de la Volupte: on y voit une defense des merites de la Pauvrete allegues par ellememe.

Book Description :

Plant Biochemistry focuses on the molecular and cellular aspects of each major metabolic pathway and sets these within the context of the whole plant. Using examples from biomedical, environmental, industrial and agricultural applications, it shows how a fundamental understanding of plant biochemistry can be used to address real-world issues. It illustrates how plants impact human activity and success, in terms of their importance as a food supply and as raw materials for industrial and pharmaceutical products, and considers how humans can benefit from exploiting plant biochemical pathways. All chapters in this second edition have been substantially revised to incorporate the latest research developments, and case studies include updates on progress in developing novel plants and plant products. The artwork, now in full color, superbly illustrates the key concepts and mechanisms presented throughout. Key features: Presents each topic from the cellular level to the ecological and environmental levels, placing it in the context of the whole plant. Biochemical pathways are represented as route maps, showing how one reaction interacts with another both within and across pathways. Includes comprehensive reading lists with descriptive notes to enable students to conduct their own research into topics they wish to explore further The wide-ranging approach of this book emphasizes the importance of teaching and learning plant biochemical pathways within the framework of what the pathway does and why it is needed. Illustrates the fundamental significance of plants, in terms of their importance as a food supply, as raw materials and as sources of novel products. Plant Biochemistry is invaluable to undergraduate students who wish to gain insight into the relevance of plant metabolism in relation to current research questions and world challenges. It should also prove to be a suitable reference text for graduates and researchers who are new to the topic or who wish to broaden their understanding of the range of biochemical pathways in plants.

Book Description :

Biotechnology is the technical application that uses living organisms or biological systems to make products that have a profound impact on agriculture, environment, and human health. In this text book, a color-coded classification is used to present basic chapters on white, red, green and blue biotechnology. Beside traditional biotechnical processes, the book will address principles of modern biotechnology research and applications. Each chapter has a general introduction and concluding paragraph, gives key terms, will address problems, and recommends additional readings. This text book is ideally suited for advanced graduate or master students and will also be a good reference for PhD students, physicians, engineers, attorneys, or non-specialist with an interest into biotechnology.
