Summary

Vitamins are essential micronutrients possessing a diverse chemical nature required by humans. Minor changes in the chemical structure of vitamins can cause major differences in their binding to proteins and therefore in their biological function. This book summarizes the current knowledge base with regard to vitamin-binding proteins. The text stresses the ways in which vitamin bonds to proteins offer therapeutic potential for various diseases. Using a systems-based approach, the authors cover such topics as vitamins and the immune system, metabolic aspects of diabetes and the cardiovascular system, neuroprotection, antioxidant function, gene regulation, and transport as a tool for tumor targeting.
