About this title

Synopsis:

Many health benefits have been attributed to selenium that include preventing various forms of cancer (e.g., colon cancer, prostate cancer, lung cancer and liver cancer), heart disease and other cardiovascular and muscle disorders, inhibiting viral expression, delaying the progression of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-positive patients, slowing the aging process, and having roles in mammalian development, including male reproduction and immune function. The purpose of the book is the same as the first two volumes which is to bring an up to date status of current research in the rapidly developing selenium field centered around the health benefits attributed to this element and how this element makes its way into protein.

From the Back Cover:

The selenium field has grown dramatically in the years since the first edition of Selenium: Its Molecular Biology and Role in Human Health was published in 2001. All aspects of selenium biology have advanced with many new approaches and insights into the biochemical, molecular, genetic, and health areas of this intriguing element. The third edition of Selenium: Its Molecular Biology and Role in Human Health brings readers up to date and informs them of the present knowledge of the molecular biology of selenium, its incorporation into proteins as selenocysteine, and the role that this element and selenium-containing proteins (selenoproteins) play in health and development.

The current edition will be an important resource for scientists and investigators in the selenium field, students, and physicians who wish to learn more about this fascinating micronutrient.
