For nearly ninety years, Pizitz offered Birmingham residents and Alabamans across the state a one-of-a-kind shopping experience. From the Enchanted Forest that sprung up every Christmas to in-store fashion shows, visiting Pizitz wasn't just a trip to the store, it was an event. Yet Pizitz was more than just a department store--it was a Birmingham institution. When Louis Pizitz opened up his first dry goods store in downtown Birmingham in 1899, he began a career as a successful businessman and a generous philanthropist, establishing a tradition of giving freely to local causes that has come to define the Pizitz family. Join Birmingham historian Tim Hollis as he recounts the fascinating history behind one of Alabama's most recognizable names and treasured retailers.

The Peptides: Analysis, Synthesis, Biology, Volume 7: Conformation in Biology and Drug Design focuses on the analysis of peptides, emphasizing the use of physical methods in peptide conformational analysis and the relationship of conformational properties of peptides to biological properties. This book consists of nine chapters. Chapter 1 provides a brief overview of the perspective on the application of physical methods to peptide conformational analysis. The use of circular dichroism (CD) spectroscopy to examine the conformational properties of peptides in solution is elaborated in Chapter 2, while the use of fluorescence spectroscopy to examine the special relationships of aromatic side-chain groups to one another is discussed in Chapter 3. In Chapter 4, the use of various theoretical methods to calculate the conformations of peptides is described. The methods used to stimulate peptide conformations and dynamics are outlined in Chapter 5. The last four chapters examine various aspects of the use of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) in peptide conformational analysis. This volume is suitable for biologists, specialists, and researchers interested in peptides and proteins.

This study examines how the multiple social, cultural, and political changes between John Kennedy’s inauguration in 1961 and the end of American involvement in Vietnam in 1973 manifested themselves in the lives of preadolescent American children. Because the preadolescent years are, according to the child development researchers, the most formative, Joel P. Rhodes focuses on the cohort born between 1956 and 1970 who have never been quantitatively defined as a generation, but whose preadolescent world was nonetheless quite distinct from that of the “baby boomers.” Rhodes examines how this group understood the historical forces of the 1960s as children, and how they made meaning of these forces based on their developmental age. He is concerned not only with the immediate imprint of the 1960s on their young lives, but with how their perspective on the era influenced them as adults.

Protein Folding aims to collect the most important information in the field of protein folding and probes the main principles that govern formation of the three-dimensional structure of a protein from a nascent polypeptide chain, as well as how the functional properties appear. This text is organized into three sections and consists of 15 chapters. After an introductory chapter where the main problems of protein folding are considered at the cellular level in the context of protein biosynthesis, the discussion turns to the conformation of native globular proteins. Definitions and rules of nomenclature are given, including the structural organization of globular proteins deduced from X-ray crystallographic data. Folding mechanisms are tentatively deduced from the observation of invariants in the architecture of folded proteins. The next chapters focus on the energetics of protein conformation and structure, indicating the principles of thermodynamic stability of the native structure, along with theoretical computation studies of protein folding, structure prediction, and folding simulation. The reader is also introduced to various experimental approaches; the reversibility of the unfolding-folding process; equilibrium and kinetic studies; and detection and characterization of intermediates in protein folding. This text concludes with a chapter dealing with problems specific to oligomeric proteins. This book is intended for research scientists, specialists, biochemists, and students of biochemistry and biology.

After the second edition introduced first density functional theory aspects, this third edition expands on this topic and offers unique practice in molecular mechanics calculations and DFT. In addition, the tutorial with its interactive exercises has been completely revised and uses the very latest software, a full version of which is enclosed on CD, allowing readers to carry out their own initial experiments with forcefield calculations in organometal and complex chemistry.
