Biology Times Release at February 2018 describe about Enzymes some botany and zoology concepts magazine available in (PDF) download. Enzymes are commonly proteinaceous substances which are capable of catalysing chemical reactions of biological origin without themselves undergoing any change. Therefore, they are called biocatalysts. A cell with an average diameter of 20 pm has about 1000 chemical reactions going on at any time. All of them require specific enzymes. All the enzymes are not present at all the times in the cell but they are formed as and when required from the blue print present in DNA. Table shows examples of some enzymes.

The term ‘enzyme’ was coined by Kuhne (1878) for catalytically active substances previously called ferments. Enzymes were actually found out by Buchner (1897) with the accidental discovery that fermentation of sugar is not only caused by living yeast cells but also yeast extract.The extract obviously possessed biocatalysts required for the process. Buchner (1903) also isolated the first enzyme. He was awarded Nobel Prize in the same year, 1903.

Description of The Clinical Practice of Stem-Cell Transplantation (PDF)

The Clinical Practice of Stem-Cell Transplantation written by J Barrett & JG.Treleaven is a great Clinical Practice book for medical students available in (PDF) download. A prerequisite for successful stem-cell transplantation is a coordinated team approach. Procedures are complex, and require haematological, general medical, surgical, psychological, nursing and laboratory input. Management is very interventive, both in terms of diagnosis and treatment, and requires a high degree of understanding between care team and patient.

In recent years, there has been a rapid expansion in the use of stem-cell transplantation worldwide, with new transplant teams coming into being each year. New specialists and new teams need practical information about the application of stem-cell transplantation in clinical practice, and the procedures involved. It is not always easy to obtain such information quickly and concisely. The indications for stem-cell transplantation have expanded considerably, and its place in treatment programmes is now much better defined. As these refinements have occurred and the procedure has become safer, more disease categories have become amenable to stem cell transplantation as a treatment approach, for example, chronic lymphocytic leukaemia, breast cancer, and autoimmune diseases. Also, patients are now better informed about treatment options. Treatment decisions have to be made very rapidly, and there are still many areas of controversy. Protocol books can help, but by their nature they rarely contain reference to the reasons behind the practice laid down. It is also difficult to keep protocol books either up-to-date, complete, or easy to locate on the unit.

With these considerations in mind, we have compiled this book which represents current transplantation practice across the entire discipline. It covers autologous and allogeneic transplantation using marrow, peripheral blood stem cells and cord blood, for the treatment of malignant and non-malignant conditions. There are four main sections: the first covers the place of stem cell transplantation in the treatment of the various malignant and non-malignant conditions. The second deals with the practical aspects of transplantation of relevance prior to the transplant, and the third section deals with practical issues occurring after the transplant. Finally, the fourth section is concerned with more general issues such as out-patient management and setting up transplant units. All of the contributors have had first-hand experience in clinical BMT, in the USA, Europe and Great Britain. We hope that with our broad choice of experts, we have succeeded in avoiding bias relating to a particular unit and that, as far as possible, the views presented reflect those generally accepted.

Description of Handbook of Micoalgal Culture 2nd Edition

Handbook of Micoalgal Culture 2nd edition written by Amos Richmond & Qiang Hu is a great Phycology culture book available in (PDF) download. The most prominent issue which has been dominating the applied microalgal world for the past few years is seen in the great surge of interest in the mass cultivation for promising products of microalgae, first and foremost among which has been microalgal fuel. The self-propelled interest in algae-based fuel is attracting several newcomers to this novel biotechnology, who affect the current course of research and promote ambitious entrepreneurship. A concise historical overview of microalgal biotechnology seems therefore essential, for providing a background and a perspective for understanding the current state of the art as well as an evaluation of the present and the future research trends.

The formal beginning of this field of research and applications may be seen in the founding of the “Algae Mass Culture Symposium” held in 1952 at Stanford University, USA. This was followed by the pioneering “Alga Culture – From Laboratory to Pilot Plant,” a brilliant report and conclusions of this initial phase of studying the feasibility of microalgal mass cultivation outdoors, which was edited by J.S. Burlew. A certain lull in research followed thereafter, essentially since the initial summation of the see early experiments (conducted in the forties and early fifties) did not carry any great promise for commercial microalgal endeavors.

Description of Electrodynamics of Continuous Media 2nd Edition

Electrodynamics of Continuous Media 2nd Edition written by L.D. Landau & E.M. Lifshitz is a great Electrodynamics book available in (PDF) download. THE present volume in the Course of Theoretical Physics deals with the theory of electromagnetic fields in matter and with the theory of the macroscopic electric and magnetic properties of matter. These theories include a very wide range of topics, as may be seen from the Contents.

In writing this book we have experienced considerable difficulties, partly because of the need to make a selection from the extensive existing material, and partly because the customary exposition of many topics to be included does not possess the necessary physical clarity, and sometimes is actually wrong. We realise that our own treatment still has many defects, which we hope to correct in future editions.

Description of Classical Electrodynamics 3rd Edition

Classical Electrodynamics (3rd Edition) written by John David Jackson is a great Physics book for Electrodynamics studies available in (PDF) download. Classical electromagnetic theory, together with classical and quantum mechanics, forms the core of present-day theoretical training for undergraduate and graduate physicists. A thorough grounding in these subjects is a requirement for more advanced or specialized training. Typically the undergraduate program in electricity and magnetism involves two or perhaps three semesters beyond elementary physics, with the emphasis on the fundamental laws, laboratory verification and elaboration of their consequences, circuit analysis, simple wave phenomena, and radiation. The mathematical tools utilized include vector calculus, ordinary differential equations with constant coefficients, Fourier series, and perhaps Fourier or Laplace transforms, partial differential equations, Legendre polynomials, and Bessel functions.

The Classical Electrodynamics 3rd Edition book begins in the traditional manner with electrostatics. The first six chapters are devoted to the development of Maxwell's theory of electromagnetism. Much of the necessary mathematical apparatus is constructed along the way, especially in Chapter 2 and 3, where boundary-value problems are discussed thoroughly. The treatment is initially in terms of the electric field E and the magnetic induction B, with the derived macroscopic quantities, D and H, introduced by suitable averaging over ensembles of atoms or molecules. In the discussion of dielectrics, simple classical models for atomic polarizability are described, but for magnetic materials no such attempt to made. Partly this omission was a question of space, but truly classical models of magnetic susceptibility are not possible. Furthermore, elucidation of the interesting phenomenon of ferromagnetism needs almost a book in itself.

Description of Introductory Microbiology 1st Edition

Introductory Microbiology written by Shankar & Kapoor is a great book for microbiology studies available in (PDF) get a free download. Although microbes were first observed over three hundred years ago, the field of microbiology can be said to be in its infancy relative to older biological disciplines such as zoology and botany. Microbiology could be defined as the study of microorganisms, which are unicellular or cell-cluster microscopic organisms. This includes eukaryote such as fungi and protists, and prokaryotes, which are bacteria and archaea. Viruses, though not strictly classed as living organisms, are also studied. In short; microbiology refers to the study of life and organisms that are too small to be seen with the naked eye.

Whilst there are undoubtedly some who fear all microbes due to the association of some microbes with many human illnesses, many microbes are also responsible for many beneficial processes such as industrial fermentation, antibiotic production and as vehicles for cloning in higher organisms such as plants. Scientists have also exploited their knowledge of microbes to produce biotechnologically important enzymes such as Taq polymerase, reporter genes for use in other genetic systems and novel molecular biology techniques such as the yeast two-hybrid system.

Bacteria can be used for the industrial production of amino acids. Corynebacterium glutamicum is one of the most important bacterial species with an annual production of more than two million tons of amino acids, mainly L-glutamate and L-Iysine. A variety of biopolymers, such as polysaccharides, polyesters, and polyamides, are produced by microorganisms. Microbes are beneficial for microbial biodegradation or bioremediation of domestic, agricultural and industrial wastes and subsurface pollution in soils, sediments and marine environments. There are also various claims concerning the contributions to human and animal health by consuming probiotics and/or prebiotics. Recent research has suggested that microorganisms could be useful in the treatment of cancer. Various strains of non-pathogenic clostridia can infiltrate and replicate within solid tumours.
