Fatty acid-binding proteins (FABPs) coordinate lipid trafficking and signaling in cells. In addition to their traditional role as fatty acid trafficking proteins, increasing evidence supports the role of FABPs as essential controllers of global metabolism, with their dysregulation linked to metabolic disorders and other several diseases.Fatty Acid-Binding Proteins and Their Roles in Human Health and Disease: From Basic Science to Clinical Application presents the latest information on the contributions of different FABPs in physiology and pathophysiology, and their importance in clinical outcomes. The book is divided into six main sections that cover from FABP biology and their role in inflammation and diseases, such as cardiovascular, neurological, and liver diseases, to FABPs and their clinical applications.Each chapter thoroughly reviews current literature, primary research data and clinical cases, providing readers with an overview of the latest information in the expanded field of FABPs. This is an invaluable resource for both researchers and clinicians familiar with and those new to the exciting and everchanging world of fatty acid-binding proteins and clinical disorders.

Fundamentals of Recombinant Protein Production, Purification and Characterization is organized into nine chapters in a logical fashion that cover an introduction to recombinant proteins and expression in different host expression systems, extraction, purification and analysis of proteins. This important reference features protocols, along with the advantages and disadvantage of each expression hosts and characterization technique (presented in tabular format) and offers detailed coverage of all aspects of protein production and processing (upstream and downstream processing) in one place. Finally, the book ends with different characterization techniques. Production of recombinant proteins for biotechnological and therapeutic applications at a large scale is an essential need of mankind. With the huge application potential of therapeutic and industrial proteins, there has been increasing demand for effective and efficient bioprocessing strategies. Recent progress around recombinant DNA technologies and bioprocessing strategies has paved the way for efficient production of recombinant proteins. Important factors such as insolubility and cost of production need to be considered for large scale production of these recombinant proteins.
