Introduces students to the fundamentals of biochemistry. Based on the author's years of experience teaching graduate, undergraduate, and professional courses, this comprehensive introduction caters to the specific needs of researchers and students who must familiarize themselves rapidly with core concepts, principles and theories. Every chapter contains suggested further readings. questions, and succinct discussions of the answers. Extensively illustrated with practical examples.
Summarizes recent results in the rapidly developing discipline of the computational aspects of biochemical reactivity. It presents a comprehensive and critical treatise on the subject, with numerous references coverning practiacally all relevant and recent work. This volume will be of interest to graduate students and researchers working in molecular biophysics, structural biology, or structure-based molecular design.
Discusses spectra of many tissues and bodily fluids, and the quantitative nature of paramagnetic centers in both normal individual and patients suffering from a variety of diseases. Special attention is give to the EPR examination of bio-molecules such as enzymes, polypeptides, vitamins, lipids, hydrocarbons, etc., which play an essential role in human activity.
Provides the methodology for studying the molecular species of key phospholipid signalling molecules, as well as the eyzymes that produce or degrade them. The protocols described in this text would allow any well equipped laboratory to tackle lipid analysis. The detailed step-by-step instructions make this book suitable for both the newcomer and the experienced investigator.
Provides the active researcher with an overview of the types of questions being addressed in proteomics studies and the technologies used to address those questions. Proteomics is an interdisciplinary science that includes biology, bioinformatics, and protein chemistry.
Presents the biochemistry of mammalian cells, relates events at the cellular level to the subsequent physiological processes in the whole animal, and cites examples of human diseases derived from aberrant biochemical processes. The organization and content aim to provide students with the complete picture of biochemistry and how it relates to humans.
