Biochemistry: The Chemical Reactions of Living Cells is a well-integrated, up-to-date reference for basic biochemistry, associated chemistry, and underlying biological phenomena. Biochemistry is a comprehensive account of the chemical basis of life, describing the amazingly complex structures of the compounds that make up cells, the forces that hold them together, and the chemical reactions that allow for recognition, signaling, and movement. This book contains information on the human body, its genome, and the action of muscles, eyes, and the brain. * Thousands of literature references provide introduction to current research as well as historical background * Contains twice the number of chapters of the first edition * Each chapter contains boxes of information on topics of general interest
A further examination of how molecules function in cellular processes. Vitamins and minerals are critical for human health, and yet few people know why they are so important for our bodies. Hormones control everything from sugar metabolism (diabetes), to sexual maturation (estrogen and testosterone), to bone density and growth (BMPs), but how these key chemicals control cells is often misunderstood. This guide will explain these topics in molecular detail for everyone interested in nutrition, molecular biology, medicine, and health. Sections include Enzymes & Enzyme Regulation, Energetics & Metabolic Pathways, Hormones, Membranes & Signaling, and Replication & Central Dogma. 6-page laminated guide includes: Enzymes & Enzyme Regulation Enzyme Terms Catalytic Models Drugs & Inhibition Enzyme Regulation Vitamins & Minerals Energetics & Metabolic Pathways ATP Reduction & Oxidation Oxidation of Glucose Gluconeogenesis 5-Carbon Sugar Biosynthesis Lipid Metabolism & Fatty Acid Biosynthesis Amino Acid Biosynthesis Nucleic Acid Biosynthesis Photo Synthesis Membrane Proteins & Membrane Signaling Membrane Transporters/Pumps Membrane Channels G-Protein Receptors Protein Kinase Receptors Steroid Receptors & Signaling Second Messengers Replication & Central Dogma DNA Replication DNA to RNA RNA Processing Suggested Uses: Students - Science related degrees are hard enough, so get the tools that make it easier to do quick reviews of must-know answers that could give that extra boost to your GPA Professors - Adopt our Biochemistry 1 and Biochemistry 2 guides for your course, where the combined price is less than any supplementary study book available

Science can do much good for mankind or can cause a catastrophe for mankind if it is handled by terrorists, (even aircraft can be turned into weapons of destruction as we have seen on September 11 2001 in New York City and Washington DC) This volume deals with science for the sake of mankind. Chemical physics, which combines chemistry and physics, and biochemical physics, which combines chemistry, physics and biology, have been developing quite radically recently. This holds true for pure and applied science as well. Some examples of such success are given in this book. Included in this volume are papers from Russian scientists, scientists from the republics of the former USSR and papers from scientists in western countries.
Biochemistry and Oral Biology presents a unique exposition of biochemistry suitable for dental students. It discusses the structural basis of metabolism and the general principles of nutrition. It addresses the soft tissues, hard tissues, and the biology of the mouth. Some of the topics covered in the book are the free radical production; scope of biochemistry; characteristics of atoms; structure and properties of water; molecular building materials; ionization of proteins; affinity chromatography of proteins; structural organization of globular proteins; classification of enzymes; and biochemically important sugar derivatives. The naturally occurring fatty acids are fully covered. The nucleic acid components are discussed in detail. The text describes in depth the energy equivalents of different nutrients. The physiological effects of dietary fiber vitamin D deficiency are completely presented. A chapter is devoted to the alternative methods of fluoride administration and description of vitamins. The book can provide useful information to dental students, and researchers.
Biochemistry of Scandium and Yttrium gathers together existing knowledge about scandium and yttrium from a wide variety of disciplines. Part 2 addresses the biochemical aspects of these two elements, and the various medical and environmental applications. (Part 1 presents a comparative study of the physical and chemical properties of scandium and yttrium, looking at both their similarities and their differences.) While these elements are relatively rare in nature, these books will show that they have unusual physical and chemical properties, and a disproportionate number of important applications. Improved analytical techniques have revealed that scandium and yttrium are present throughout living matter, even though only a relatively limited number of species have been analyzed so far. This fact of course has far-ranging implications for biological and environmental concerns. The major impacts of scandium and yttrium in science, technology, and medicine will be of interest to a wide variety of researchers, including geochemists, inorganic and organic chemists, clinical biochemists, and those specializing in environmental protection.
Astrocytes: Biochemistry, Physiology, and Pharmacology of Astrocytes, Volume 2 focuses on the physiological and pharmacological aspects of astrocytes. This volume gives specific attention to intracellular metabolic activity; membrane components and functions; responses to neurotransmitters and other intrinsic factors; and neuronal-glial interactions. Studies in this text establishe the astrocyte as an essential neuronal partner in the neuronal-glial interrelationship throughout the life-span of the neuron and also further explain the potential roles of astrocytes in brain function. Cell physiologists, neurophysiologists, neuropharmacologists, pediatric neurologists, and gerontologists will find the book interesting.
