Dietary Modulation of Cell Signaling PathwaysAuthor:
Publisher: CRC Press
Publish date: May 2008
Provides a comprehensive introduction to dietary modulation of cell signaling Presents the most current information in this rapidly-evolving field Features contributions from international experts Focuses on nutrient-gene interactions Because fine-tuning of cellular signaling pathways is pivotal for maintaining homeostasis in the living organism, disruption of any of the signal transduction pathways can lead to serious cellular dysfunction. Current research continues to increase its attention on the role of nutrition and diet in modifying oxidative damage in the progression of disease. Dietary Modulation of Cell Signaling Pathways reviews the latest research findings, focusing on nutrient-gene interactions with a particular emphasis on the intracellular signaling network. This book addresses the dietary modulation of specific gene expression systems, highlighting the underlying molecular and cellular mechanisms.
