Nutrition and Gene Expression is devoted to exploring the tissue-specific and developmental aspects of the interaction between nutrients and the genome. The book discusses chemical sensitivity in relation to the ability of cells to detect nutrients; reviews the means by which lower organisms respond to nutrients; and provides examples on how each of the classes of nutrients affects genetic transcription, mRNA translation or stability. The receptor-mediated actions of vitamin D and retinoic acid on gene expression are discussed, including the case of bone formation and dissolution. Other important topics covered in the volume include newly discovered effects of fatty acids on regulating gene expression, the effects of diet on mRNA editing, the interplay between dietary carbohydrates and proteins in regulating metabolism of liver cells, the effects of metal ions on protein synthesis, and much more.
Nutrition and Gene Expression is an important reference for nutritionists, physiologists, biochemists, clinical nutritionists, pharmaceutical researchers, geneticists, and food scientists.
