For one-semester or two-semester introductory courses in Biochemistry. May be taught out of departments of chemistry, biology, or biochemistry. Biochemistry departments may be in faculties of science or in medicine.This concise, introductory text focuses on the basic principles of biochemistry, filling the gap between the encyclopedic volumes and the cursory overview texts. The book has a well-deserved reputation for being the most accurate biochemistry textbook in the market. Widely praised in its previous edition for currency, and clarity of exposition, the new edition has been thoroughly revised and updated to reflect recent changes in this dynamic discipline.
Expands coverage of these important reactions and explains electron gain and loss in a simple and straightforward manner. Principles and concepts are covered in a revised chapter on metabolic strategies. Electron transport and photosynthesis chapters have been extensively revised.
The fundamental strategies of metabolic pathways are explained from the perspective of how they evolved.
The fourth edition places more emphasis on biosynthesis pathways since they are of fundamental importance for most species. Catabolic pathways are usually described after the synthesis of particular biomolecules has been explained. (Exception: glycolysis.) This extends a trend that has been developing in all biochemistry textbooks over the past decade.
