By Antonius M. VanDongen

The NMDA receptor performs a severe position within the improvement of the significant fearful procedure and in grownup neuroplasticity, studying, and reminiscence. consequently, it's not striking that this receptor has been extensively studied. despite the fact that, regardless of the significance of rhythms for the sustenance of existence, this point of NMDAR functionality continues to be poorly studied. Written by way of one of many world’s top experts on NMDA receptors, Biology of the NMDA Receptor brings jointly almost all of the gamers during this vital box.

Mitral Valve Prolapse: Benign Syndrome?

Sharon Anderson explores Mitral Valve Prolapse, a syndrome that has questioned many for many years, and sheds gentle on a illness that has effects on such a lot of and is addressed too little. the indications of the affliction usually are not multiple from these of different illnesses: palpitations, fainting, fatigue, shortness of breath, migraine complications, chest soreness, episodes of tremendous swift or abnormal heartbeat, dizziness and lightheadedness.

LAWS, LANGUAGE and LIFE: Howard Pattee’s classic papers on the physics of symbols with contemporary commentary

Howard Pattee is a physicist who for a few years has taken his personal direction in learning the physics of symbols, that is now a beginning for biosemiotics. by means of extending von Neumann’s logical requisites for self-replication, to the actual necessities of symbolic guideline on the molecular point, he concludes type of quantum size is critical for all times.

Animal Cell Culture

​Animal cells are the popular “cell factories” for the creation of complicated molecules and antibodies to be used as prophylactics, therapeutics or diagnostics. Animal cells are required for the proper post-translational processing (including glycosylation) of biopharmaceutical protein items. they're used for the creation of viral vectors for gene remedy.
