Publisher: New York : W.H. Freeman, ©2012Edition: 7th edDescription: xxxii, 1054, 43, 41, 48 pages : illustrations (some color) ; 29 cmContent type: text Media type: unmediated Carrier type: volumeISBN: 9781429229364; 1429229365; 9781429276351; 1429276355; 9781429273961; 1429273968Subject(s): Biochemistry | Biochemical Phenomena | BiochemistryLOC classification: QP 514.2 | .S66 2012
Contents:
Biochemistry: an evolving science -- Protein composition and structure -- Exploring proteins and proteomes -- DNA, RNA, and the flow of genetic information -- Exploring genes and genomes -- Exploring evolution and bioinformatics -- Hemoglobin: portrait of a protein in action -- Enzymes: basic concepts and kinetics -- Catalytic strategies -- Regulatory strategies -- Carbohydrates -- Lipids and cell membranes -- Membrane channels and pumps -- Signal-transduction pathways -- Metabolism: basic concepts and design -- Glycolysis and gluconeogenesis -- The citric acid cycle -- Oxidative phosphorylation -- The light reactions of photosynthesis -- The calvin cycle and the pentose phosphate pathway -- Glycogen metabolism -- Fatty acid metabolism -- Protein turnover and amino acid catabolism -- The biosynthesis of amino acids -- Nucleotide biosynthesis -- The biosynthesis of membrane lipids and steroids -- The integration of metabolism -- DNA replication, repair, and recombination -- RNA synthesis and processing -- Protein synthesis -- The control of gene expression in prokaryotes -- The control of gene expression in eukaryotes -- Sensory systems -- The immune system -- Molecular motors -- Drug development.
Summary: With a balance of topic coverage and depth this updated third edition covers the subject of biochemistry, and reflects the advances made in this field since the second edition published in 1981. These advances are incorporated without loss of historical perspective and without obscuring the main goal of the text: to teach the enduring fundamentals of the discipline. Included in the third edition is a completely reorganized part one introducing the flow of information from gene to protein. It emphasizes the growing interrelatedness of molecular biology and biochemistry, and acquaints one with experimental methods of both disciplines. Also included is 150 new problems and a wealth of new material on molecular genetics and cellular processes.
