Book

Integrative Human Biochemistry: A textbook for Medical Biochemistry
Andrea Da Poian, Miguel Castanho (Springer, Nova Iorque, 2015)

Esta obra é um manual destinado alunos de disciplinas de Bioquímica em cursos ligados à Saúde Humana, como Medicina, Ciências Farmacêuticas, Medicina Dentária, Enfermagem ou Nutrição. É dada uma perspetiva moderna da Bioquímica, com ênfase nos mecanismos reguladores da gestão energética no corpo humano em situações como os ciclos de alimentação e jejum, ou os ciclos de repouso e exercício. Os princípios básicos que permitem a compreensão da reactividade e das interações físicas da matéria são abordados de forma simples e quantitativa, sempre privilegiando a representação tridimensional das moléculas para que a relação estrutura-função seja evidente. O recurso a experiências históricas-chave com menção dos seus autores e a elucidação do processo de descoberta é uma via de ensino sobre como se gera conhecimento em Bioquímica.

Aquaporins

Aquaporins in Health and Disease: New Molecular Targets for Drug Discovery
Graca Soveral, Soren Nielsen, Angela Casini (CRC Press, Taylor & Francis Group, 2016)

Since the discovery of Aquaporin-1 (AQP1) as a water channel, many studies have revealed the importance of aquaporins in mammalian physiology and pathophysiology as well as plant and microbial biology. The studies have also shown aquaporins as potential drug targets and targets for improving crop properties.
Written by an international group of contributors at the forefront of the field, Aquaporins in Health and Disease: New Molecular Targets for Drug Discovery presents the latest research advances in aquaporins and other major intrinsic protein (MIP) channels. Stimulating future research on this important protein family, this book facilitates a paradigm shift in the understanding and roles of aquaporin membrane proteins in all biological settings. It encourages scientists to develop novel approaches for the treatment of human diseases based on aquaporin function or dysfunction.
