Biological Interactions Of Sulfur Compounds by Stephen C. Mitchell

By Stephen C. Mitchell

This article makes a speciality of the organic interactions of sulphur compounds which come up in particular from the presence of the sulphur atom in the molecule. The publication opens with introductory chapters at the chemistry and biology of sulphur, earlier than tackling the sphere by means of introducing compounds which proportion a typical chemical mixture. normally, following an outline of the makes use of and influence upon the organic box, particular chemical crew features are mentioned including the organic job and structure-activity relationships the place identified. The toxicity of such compounds, their outcomes in biochemical and medical phrases, and their mechanisms of organic interplay are then addressed.

6 Communication Communication between cells and tissues has been essential for multicellular growth. The construction of a neural network, thus allowing rapid response, has 31 Biological Interactions of Sulfur Compounds been one of the factors which has enabled species to evolve into relatively efficient biological machines. Communication between species has permitted existence in relatively ordered social groupings, hence the importance of being able to recognize like species with which they should be safe and can mate and distinguish foreign creatures which may be harmful.
