Title: Self and Nonself

Publisher: Springer-Verlag Gmbh Feb 2012

Publication Date: 2012

Binding: Buch

Book Condition: Neu

Description:

Neuware - In 1960 Sir Frank Macfarlane Burnet received the Noble Prize in Physiology and Medicine. He titled his Nobel Lecture 'Immunological Recognition of Self' emphasizing the central argument of immunological tolerance in 'How does the vertebrate organism recognize self from nonself in this the immunological sense-and how did the capacity evolve.' The concept of self is linked to the concept of biological self identity. All organisms, from bacteria to higher animals, possess recognition systems to defend themselves from nonself. Even in the context of the limited number of metazoan phyla that have been studied in detail, we can now describe many of the alternative mechanism of immune recognition that have emerged at varying points in phylogeny. Two different arms-the innate and adaptive immune system-have emerged at different moments in evolution, and they are conceptually different. The ultimate goals of immune biology include reconstructing the molecular networks underlying immune processes. 320 pp. Englisch. Bookseller Inventory # 9781461416791

Synopsis: In 1960 Sir Frank Macfarlane Burnet received the Noble Prize in Physiology and Medicine. He titled his Nobel Lecture ?Immunological Recognition of Self? emphasizing the central argument of immunological tolerance in ?How does the vertebrate organism recognize self from nonself in this the immunological sense?and how did the capacity evolve.? The concept of self is linked to the concept of biological self identity. All organisms, from bacteria to higher animals, possess recognition systems to defend themselves from nonself. Even in the context of the limited number of metazoan phyla that have been studied in detail, we can now describe many of the alternative mechanism of immune recognition that have emerged at varying points in phylogeny. Two different arms?the innate and adaptive immune system?have emerged at different moments in evolution, and they are conceptually different. The ultimate goals of immune biology include reconstructing the molecular networks underlying immune processes.

He is a world expert on spondyloarthropathies (SpA), in particular genetic (MHC) and genetic factors that influence the development of the disease. The main research interests of his group also currently include the study of epigenetic mechanisms involved in autoimmune diseases and the role of innate immunity in organ transplantation tolerance. He is a member of several international scientific organizations and board member of different scientific journals.
