New techniques in cellular and molecular biology have increased our understanding of the mechanisms controlling reproductive function in the female. Emphasizing these new techniques, Molecular Biology of the Female Reproductive System provides a state-of-the-art review of local regulatory mechanisms that control reproductive processes. Stressing the interface of endocrinology, immunology, and cell biology, this book concentrates on the autocrine, paracrine, and endocrine systems that regulate both the functions of the ovary and uterus and the interaction between the early embryo and the mother. Covers the mechanisms controlling reproductive function in the female Offers a cellular and molecular approach to the control of reproductive function Focuses on the ovary and uterus, and includes a discussion of the early embryo, including Hormonal control of folliculogenesis and luteal function Cell-cell interactions in the follicle Role of cytokines in regulating steroid and protein hormone production Endocrine receptors and mechanisms in ovulation Cell biology of the oviduct and uterus Migratory cells Paracrine regulation Hormones of the trophectoderm and early placenta Interaction between trophectoderm and endometrium Provides extensive references

The field of angiogenesis is one of the most exciting fields in contemporary biomedical research. Angiogenesis in the healthy adult is primarily associated with pathological conditions such as tumor growth, inflammation, ischemia, and retinopathies. Physiological angiogenesis in the healthy adult is restricted to the organs of the female reproductive system where it occurs cyclically as well as during pregnancy. The importance of vascular morphogenetic events in the female reproductive system is increasingly being recognized. For example, it has a vital role in normal ovarian function, endometriosis and placental function as well as being important in reproductive tumors of the mammary gland, ovary and uterus. The insights gained from studying this system have a more general interest too since they help shed light on the fundamental characteristics and components involved in the formation of the vascular system and blood vessels during development, and during tumorigenesis. This is the first book that reviews and presents recent advances in the emerging field of reproductive vascular biology. It is divided into four parts reflecting the four female reproductive organs (breast, ovary, uterus, and placenta) and the authors cover both the basic biological processes involved and also stress their clinical significance. The book will interest vascular and reproductive biologists as well as cell and developmental biologists interested in angiogenesis and vasculogenesis.

Molecular biology emerged from advances in biochemistry during the 1940s and 1950s, when the structure of the nucleic acids and proteins were elucidated. Beginning in the 1970s, with nucleic acid enzymology and the discovery of the restriction enzymes, the tools of molecular biology became widely available and applied in cell biology to study how genes are regulated. This new knowledge impacted endocrinology and reproductive biology since it was largely known that the secretion of the internal glands affected the phenotypes, and expression of genes. Modern reproductive biology encompasses every level of biological study from genomics to ecology, encompassing cell biology, biochemistry, endocrinology and general physiology. All of these disciplines require a basic knowledge, both as a tool and as an essential aid to a fundamental understanding of the principles of life in health and disease. Overall, molecular biology is central to scientific studies in all living matter, impacting disciplines such as medicine, related health sciences, veterinary, agriculture and environmental sciences. In this book, the basic biochemistry of nucleic acids and proteins are reviewed. Methodologies used to study signaling and gene regulation in the endocrine/reproductive system are also discussed. Topics include mechanisms of hormone action and several endocrine disorders affecting the reproductive system. Professionals in the medical, veterinary and animal sciences fields will find exciting and stimulating material enhancing the breadth and quality of their research.

A valuable new reference on insect behavior, this exceptional new text delves into the primary sensory communication system used by most insects -- their sense of smell. Insect Pheromone Biochemistry and Molecular Biology covers how insects produce pheromones and how they detect pheromones and plant volatiles. Since insects rely on pheromone detection for both feeding and breeding, a better understanding of insect olfaction and pheromone biosynthesis could help curb the behavior of pests without the use of harmful pesticides and even help to reduce the socio-economic impacts associated to human-insect interactions. Covers biochemistry and molecular biology of insect pheromone production Explains pheromone production in moths, beetles, flies, and social insects Describes pheromone and plant volatile reception

This volume describes the myriad ways in which fish have approached problems of reproduction — it is an amply illustrated comparative study of the microscopic structure of the female genital systems of fish. The timing of its appearance is auspicious in that it coincides with the decline of the golden age of descriptive morphology. It is a compilation of thousands of micrographs from classic works in the field. The volume should prove valuable to investigators studying fish in areas such as ecology, physiology, and reproductive biology who may view histology as essential in their work but have little background in this area.
