Structure Quality Structure Summary pages provide access to information about structure quality. The slider graphic compares important global quality indicators for a given structure with the PDB archive. Global percentile ranks black vertical boxes are calculated with respect to all X-ray structures available prior to Resolution-specific percentile ranks white vertical boxes are calculated considering entries with similar resolution. Map Genomic Position to Protein Mutations in a gene can have profound effects on the function of a protein.
Textbook of Anatomy and Physiology.
Comparative biochemistry and physiology. This book presents accuratel y in pages the salient facts on which modern cardiological teaching , diagnosis and treatment are based. The subject is presented in good perspective, 70 pages are devoted to the three main types of heart disease; ischaernic, hypertensive and rheumatic ; 50 pages are concerned with history taking, examination and methods of investigation, and towards the end of the book the reader is introduced to congenital heart disease in a short chapter of 18 pages.
The weakest section is that on heart failure, which is disappointing and could well have been expanded.
The text is clearly illust rated throughout; the electrocardiograms are particularly well chosen. As in all works of this type and size, there is the danger that over simplification may lead to dogmatic statements which are not entirely justified.
The authors , however.
I know of no other book that covers this rapidly growing subject so briefly yet comprehensively and it can be recommended to all those interested in modern cardiology, not only to the 'undergraduate student, house physician and general practitioner' for whom the book was primarily written.
The authors, both of whom have been Resident Medical Officers at the National Heart Hospital, should be congratulated for undertaking this difficult task and for the success they have made of it.
Textbook of Physiology and Biochemistry. BELL, J. Livingstone, Edinburgh and London. Thi s indicates the success of the work with medical students and the speed of advance of knowledge in physiology and pharmacology.
But why review it in ajournal read almost solely by chest physicians and others interested in tuberculosis? The study of chest diseases is perhaps the widest of the narrow specialities into which medicine has been divided. Not only must the competent chest physician be well trained in general medicine before he starts his special study, but he must also retain as much as possible of his general medical knowledge and keep, if not abreast of, at least not too far behind its advancing front.
An example would be Fig. An exception is Fig. Sometimes this is appropriate, and at other times one wonders if this is the best illustration available.
The text is somewhat unusual in its organization. On the other hand the extensive coverage of nitric oxide, reactive oxygen radicals, and prostaglandin synthesis is quite beneficial. In a text that is a new edition I was rather surprised to find so much outdated or incorrect information in areas I know best. In the section concerning Scatchard plots, the analysis of multiple binding described in Fig.
In the section involving fatty acid modifications of proteins, prenylation is not addressed directly, and proteins with thioester modifications are implied incorrectly p. Probably the worst mistake is in Fig.
In a text that has 28 contributors it is not hard to see why some chapters seem to be written for professors, rather than to instruct students.
