    Abstract: This book discusses the field of bioinspired℗ smell and taste sensors which includes many new areas: sensitive materials, physiological modelling and simulation, and more. Similar to biological chemical sensing systems, bioinspired℗ smell and taste sensors are characterized with fast responsive, high specificity and sensitivity. One of the most important parts of the field is that of sensitive elements originated from biological components, which enable the detection of chemical signals by mimicking the biological mechanisms. This book detailed describes processing, devices, recognition principles of sensitive materials, and concrete realizations. It is written for researchers, engineers and biologists who engages in interdisciplinary research and applications. Dr. Ping Wang is a professor at Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China.

    Abstract: After the discovery of milk fat globule-epidermal growth factor-factor 8 (MFG-E8) about two decades ago, a new era of delineating its potential beneficial role in several inflammatory diseases has begun to spout from the bench to translational research.℗ In MFG-E8 and Inflammation, the editor and contributors have gathered a remarkable collection covering novel discoveries on the rapidly growing field of MFG-E8 and Inflammation which includes not only the findings from their individual lobotomies, but also from a host of pioneering researchers of this field. MFG-E8 and Inflammation starts by describing the origin, structure, expression, functions and regulation of MFG-E8, and then on℗ continues thoughtfully exploring its potentiality as a marker for apoptotic, stressed and activated cells.℗ The topics cover the cellular and physiological function of MFG-E8, especially its role in efficient phagocytosis of apoptotic cells, intestinal barrier function, blood cell homeostasis and coagulation, and in the maintenance of the intact vascular system.℗ The role of MFG-E8 in macrophages, neutrophils, lymphocytes, dendritic cells, platelets, as well as non-hematopoietic cells is adequately described in the book.℗ The chapters also contain several lucid discussions on the recent discoveries of the roles of MFG-E8 in the autoimmune diseases, sepsis, tissue ischemia-reperfusion, hemorrhage, inflammatory bowel disease, acute lung injury, asthma, lung fibrosis, stroke, prion disease and Alzheimeŕ€™s disease with the potential focus on elucidating novel mechanistic pathways. MFG-E8 and Inflammation is an indispensable resource for scientists and clinical researchers working on fundamental or applied aspects of MFG-E8 pathobiology.℗ This book explores, dissects and reviews several noteworthy findings and striking future perspectives which not only rewrite the disease pathophysiology, but also update our understanding towards attaining novel therapeutic potentials against various inflammatory diseases

    Description / Table of Contents: Protective Responses of Different Organs to Environmental Toxicants or Stresses -- Avoidance Behaviour of Nematodes to Environmental Toxicants or Stresses -- Intestinal Barrier for Nematodes against Toxicity of Environmental Toxicants or Stresses -- Epidermal Barrier for Nematodes against Toxicity of Environmental Toxicants or Stresses -- Toxicity Induction in Intestine and Epidermis in Nematodes Exposed to Environmental Toxicants or Stresses -- Toxicity Induction in Neurons and Muscle in Nematodes Exposed to Environmental Toxicants or Stresses -- Reproductive Toxicity Induction in Nematodes Exposed to Environmental Toxicants or Stresses -- Intestinal Signalling Pathways Required for the Regulation of Toxicity of Environmental Toxicants or Stresses -- Epidermal Signalling Pathways Required for the Regulation of Toxicity of Environmental Toxicants or Stresses -- Neuronal Signalling Pathways Required for the Regulation of Toxicity of Environmental Toxicants or Stresses -- Germline Signalling Pathways Required for the Regulation of Toxicity of Environmental Toxicants or Stresses
    Abstract: This book introduces readers to intestinal and epidermal barriers, and to toxicity induction of environmental toxicants or stresses in the intestine, epidermis, neurons, muscle, and reproductive organs in Caenorhabditis elegans. In addition, it discusses the protective responses of various organs and nematodes’ avoidance behaviour with regard to environmental toxicants or stresses. The intestinal, epidermal, neuronal, and germline signalling pathways required for the regulation of toxicity of environmental toxicants or stresses are also introduced and discussed. As a classic model animal with well-described genetic and developmental backgrounds, the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans has been successfully and widely used in both toxicity assessments and toxicological studies on various environmental toxicants and stresses. Once exposure to certain environmental toxicants has occurred, the toxicants can enter into the primary targeted organs (such as intestinal cells), and even be translocated into secondary targeted organs (such as reproductive organs and neurons). Based on related available data, this book provides a systematic understanding of target organ toxicology in C. elegans

The molecular basis for adaptive response for transgenerational toxicity of environmental toxicants or stresses will be further discussed. Nematode Caenorhabditis elegans is a classic model animal with well-described genetic and developmental backgrounds based on the study of life science, and has been further successfully and widely used in both toxicity assessment and toxicological study of various environmental toxicants or stresses. Based on related available data, this book aims at providing a systematic understanding of the knowledge system of molecular toxicology in C. elegans

    Description / Table of Contents: Overview of food allergy and gut mucosal immunity -- Species and structure of food allergens: epitopes and cross-reactivity -- Detection and quantification methods for food allergens -- Allergenicity evaluation of food proteins -- Foodprocessing to eliminate food allergens and development of hypoallergenic foods -- Modulation of food allergy by bioactive natural compounds and development of functional foods -- Food allergy and the microbiota: implications for probiotic use in regulating allergic responses -- Intestinal permeability and transport of food allergens -- Risk assessment and control management of food allergens
    Abstract: This book addresses the molecular mechanisms of food allergies and related control strategies. To do so, it covers a broad range of topics, including: the basic immunology of food allergies, including crosstalk between gut mucosal immunity and allergens; types of food allergens, structure of food allergen epitopes and cross-reactivity; detection and quantification methods for food allergens; in vitro and in vivo models for evaluating allergenicity; novel food processing methods for the development of hypoallergenic foods; bioactive natural compounds and functional foods for alleviating allergic reactions; modulation of the microbiota in food allergies and use of probiotics in allergic response regulation; and risk assessment and control strategies for food allergens. The information provided will enable food scientists/specialists to design safer and more functional food products, and will help regulatory agencies identify and label food allergens (and thus help consumers avoid allergic reactions). It will help clinicians and public health investigators prevent or treat outbreaks of food allergies, and will provide food producers and processors, as well as government inspectors, with valuable insights into evaluation, risk assessment and control strategies for allergens. Lastly, it will benefit upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in food science and safety, public health, medicine, nutrition and related fields
