Now in its second edition, Biochemical Pathways continuesto garner praise from students, instructors, and researchers forits clear, full-color illustrations of the pathways and networksthat determine biological function.
Biochemical Pathways examines the biochemistry ofbacteria, plants, and animals. It offers a quick overview of themetabolic sequences in biochemical pathways, the chemistry andenzymology of conversions, the regulation of turnover, theexpression of genes, the immunological interactions, and themetabolic background of health disorders. A standard set ofconventions is used in all illustrations, enabling readers toeasily gather information and compare the key elements of differentbiochemical pathways. For both quick and in-depth understanding,the book uses a combination of:Illustrations integrating many different features of thereactions and their interrelationshipsTables listing the important system components and theirfunctionText supplementing and expanding on the illustrated facts
In the second edition, the volume has been expanded by 50percent. Text and figures have undergone a thorough revision andupdate, reflecting the tremendous progress in biochemical knowledgein recent years.
