Download ADAMTS13: Biology and Disease by George M. Rodgers PDF

By George M. Rodgers

This accomplished quantity discusses the protease ADAMTS13, summarizing the present prestige of easy and scientific learn. The 9 authoritative chapters commence with a historic standpoint by way of exploration of the biochemistry and structure-function relationships of ADAMTS13 in addition to its basic functionality in hemostasis (cleavage of von Willebrand factor). rising study subject matters for ADAMTS13 are lined, together with its power function in angiogenesis and different points of cellphone biology. extra subject matters comprise laboratory assays for ADAMTS13, inherited ADAMTS13 deficiency, and purchased ADAMTS13 deficiency. A bankruptcy on comparable thrombotic microangiopathic (TMA) problems examines the diversities among TMAs linked to ADAMTS13 deficiency and people now not linked to ADAMTS13 deficiency. a last bankruptcy experiences the initial details on rising points of ADAMTS13, reminiscent of the prestige of recombinant ADAMTS13 items and their power utility.

Comprehensive in its exploration of the ADAMTS13 protease in disease, ADAMTS13: Biology and ailment is an important source for medical hematologists, transfusion drugs physicians, and researchers drawn to hemostasis, vascular biology, biochemistry, and metalloproteases.
