Provides a comprehensive and detailed analysis of nucleic acid oxidation
Coverage from the perspectives of basic science and biological relevance
This book provides up-to-date coverage of selected topics in nucleic acid oxidation. The topics have been selected to cover everything from basic chemical mechanisms, repair of damage and the biological and pathological meaning of DNA oxidation. The chapters are authored by leading, research active, international experts in the respective topics. In addition to some of the traditionally covered topics, the book covers areas that receive less attention in similar volumes, for example chapters focusing on damage to nucleic acids by halogenating and nitrating species, gene-specific damage, telomere shortening and damage to promoter regions. Through this approach, coverage recognizes the importance of nucleic acid damage beyond mutation and in pathological conditions other than carcinogenesis. This book will appeal to research scientists and advanced postgraduate students and may also be of interest to clinicians with strong research interests.
