Principles of Biochemistry provides a concise introduction to fundamental concepts of biochemistry, striking the right balance of rigor and detail between the encyclopedic volumes and the cursory overview texts available today. Widely praised for accuracy, currency and clarity of exposition, the Fifth Edition  offers a new reader-friendly design, an enhanced visual program, new Application Boxes, contemporary research integrated throughout, and updated end-of-chapter problems. KEY TOPICS: Introduction to Biochemistry; Water; Amino Acids and the Primary Structures of Proteins; Proteins: Three-Dimensional Structure and Function; Properties of Enzymes; Mechanisms of Enzymes; Coenzymes and Vitamins; Carbohydrates; Lipids and Membranes; Introduction to Metabolism; Glycolysis; Gluconeogenesis, The Pentose Phosphate Pathway, and Glycogen Metabolism; The Citric Acid Cycle; Electron Transport and ATP Synthesis; Photosynthesis; Lipid Metabolism; Amino Acid Metabolism; Nucleotide Metabolism; Nucleic Acids; DNA Replication, Repair, and Recombination; Transcription and RNA Processing; Protein Synthesis. MARKET: A concise overview and reference for individuals who need to learn more about biochemistry.
