Renowned USMLE review author Dr. Thomas Brownand Dr. Sonali Bracken bring together their expertise with a team of medical student reviewers and authors to provide the most current overview of board-tested content.
Figures, tables, and summary boxesprovide a visual and concise overview of important board-relevant content. New color images added throughout—including those found in a new chapter covering high-yield dermatology and pathology—enhance visual review of important, board-relevant images.
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. A guide to the relevant biochemical databasesfacilitates access to the extensive documentation of scientificknowledge.
Biochemical Pathways, Second Edition is recommended forall students and researchers in such fields as biochemistry,molecular biology, medicine, organic chemistry, and pharmacology.The book's illustrated pathways aids the reader in understandingthe complex set of biochemical reactions that occur in biologicalsystems.
