Author: Pankaja Naik PhD; ISBN 9789351529897 Edition 4/e Publish Year 2016 Pages 864 Size 8.5" X 11" Cover Type Paper Back With CD/DVD No; Clear concise and in four color BIOCHEMISTRY is now in its fourth edition! This book offers a comprehensive text thoroughly revised and updated by incorporating latest concepts and outstanding full-color illustrations integrated coverage of biochemical diseases and clinical information in an easy to understand reproducible and highly user-friendly format. The content of the book is divided into seven major sections: • Section 1: structures and function of the biomolecules contains an introductory chapter on cell structure and function followed by chapters on structure and functions of carbohydrates lipids amino acids peptides and proteins enzymes haemoglobin and nucleotide and nucleic acids • Section II: Energy metabolism and metabolism of biomelocules begins with the chapter on biological oxidation then separate chapters describing the synthesis and degradation of carbohydrates lipids amino acids peptides and proteins haemoglobin and purine and pyrimidine nucleotides. A chapter on integration of these metabolic pathways as well as metabolism in starvation also included in this section • Section III: Nutrition describes nutrients and their role in nutrition role of vitamins and minerals • Section IV: Molecular biology describes DNA replication and repair RNA synthesis and modification genetic code mutation protein biosynthesis regulation of gene expression and genetic engineering • Section V: Clinical biochemistry covers clinically relevant chapters body water and electrolytes acid-base balance organ function tests coronary heart disease and cardiac markers plasma proteins and immunoglobulins the immune system radioisotopes in medicine cancer and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) • Section VI: Biochemistry of cellular communications includes mechanism of hormone action and neurotransmitters • Section VII: Special topics includes seven special topics ranging from metabolism of xenobiotics free radicals and antioxidants environment and health biomedical waste management muscle biochemistry connective tissue and analytical techniques in biochemistry.; The major efforts for this edition have been taken to update the chapters biological oxidation metabolism in starvation replication transcription translation and organ function tests. Each chapter consists of learning objectives at the beginning which point-wise outlines what is to be learned in the particular chapter. In addition in response to reviewer recommendations sections in many chapters have been reorganized for a better flow of information. Related content of molecular biology (Section IV) that in previous edition was presented in three chapters have been now presented into five different chapters. To facilitate the students learning the book have been added with several new features: • A glossary with precise definitions serves as a ready-reference to the most common words in the ever-growing language of biochemical sciences. • A list of reference/normal values appears at the end of the book. • Clinical correlations based on biochemical conditions wherever occurs in each chapter are presented in a colored box. • Inclusion of additional multiple choice examination questions with answers and clinical case studies given at end of the chapters since these have proved to be a very popular component of the book. The text has been so presented that the students would find it easy to attempt any question in the form of objective type multiple choices or essay type after going through the text; Biochemistry students
