Food Shelf Life Stability provides a unique approach to understanding this critical subject by examining physical, chemical, and biochemical factors affecting food quality.
The first section emphasizes the effects that water activity, glass transition, and plasticization have on temperature, water content, and time-dependant phenomena affecting the shelf life of low and intermediate moisture foods.
The remaining chapters discuss how mechanical handling and temperature, irradiation, and packaging all influence shelf life. Section two, on chemical factors, examines the benefits of controlled atmosphere storage and modified atmosphere packaging on vegetables, fruits, grains, and oilseeds. The remaining chapters compare the effectiveness of antioxidants, emulsifiers, stabilizers, and sulfur dioxide to enhance food quality. The remaining chapter in this section deals with the application of biotechnology for improving shelf life. Intended for food science professionals as well as students, Food Shelf Life Stability presents the fundamental principles that are applied to maintaining a high food quality for an extended period of time.

The second edition of Immune ‘Response and the Eye’ highlights recent insights into the ‘dangerous compromise’ between the immune system and the eye, which protects the eye against pathogens while limiting inflammation and immune-mediated injury to ocular tissues with little or no regenerative potential. It discusses the broad spectrum of physiological, immunological, anatomical, and biochemical adaptations that conspire to closely regulate the tone and tenor of immune responses in the eye. This volume further describes immune-mediated diseases that occur when the compromise between the immune system and the eye is breached. This breakdown in immune privilege threatens the vision of millions each year. Finally, recent advances in ocular immunology are presented, which offer potential therapeutic applications in corneal and retinal transplantation and in the management of blinding autoimmune diseases of the eye. Eye researchers, ophthalmologists and immunologists will appreciate the state-of-the-art and authoritative information presented in ‘Immune Response and the Eye’.

Biochemistry: The Chemical Reactions of Living Cells, Second Edition provides a reliable source of information about the fascinating chemical reactions taking place in the human body and in the living world around us. Enlarged, updated, and improved, this second edition, like the first, will be widely regarded as the most comprehensive of all biochemistry texts. This is the only biochemistry text on the market sufficiently detailed to be used by undergraduates, graduate students and professional workers. The title is quite comprehensive, strong on chemical foundations, and thoroughly referenced.The renowned author, David Metzler has written a readable and accessible revision which has a wealth of information unavailable in most textbooks. The second edition provides a huge amount of biochemical information in substantial depth. This book describes the amazingly complex structures of the compounds that make up cell, the forces that hold them together, and the chemical reactions that allow for recognition, signaling, and movement. The actions of protein and RNA enzymes, vitamins, coenzymes, and metal ions in the catalysis of these reactions is emphasized. The examination of these chemical mechanisms provide the basis for a thorough treatment of biosynthesis and the breakdown of food and cell constituents. The book is full of information on the human body, its genome, and the action of muscles, eyes, and the brain. It also deals with the world around us in considering metabolism of bacteria, toxins, antibiotics, specialized compounds made by plants, photosynthesis, luminescence of fireflies, and many other topics.This book details the chemical basis of life -- the structures ofproteins, DNA, RNA, polysaccharides, and lipids, and the ways that these "building blocks" are assembled into clusters, fibrils, tubules, membranes, ribosomes, mitochondria, and outer cell coats. It covers bacteria, fungi, plants, and animals; the structural chemistry of proteins, DNA, RNA, membranes, cell walls, isoprenoid compounds, polyketides, and alkaloids; enzyme mechanisms, kinetics, coenzymes, and metalloenzymes; metabolism, including the synthesis of DNA, RNA, and proteins; signaling, effects of light, and cell defense mechanisms.
