Biochemistry: The Molecular Basis of Life by Trudy McKee
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This textbook is for a diverse audience ranging from chemistry majors to students in any of the life sciences. The logical organization (discussion of molecular structure immediately followed by the role it plays in metabolism) leads students through the complex world of biochemistry while an impressive art program helps to guide them through up-to-date concepts. - Biochemical processes are presented, wherever possible, in a cellular or organismal context. Examples include the urea cycle, fatty acid metabolism, the glyoxylate cycle and gluconeogenesis and calcium metabolism. - Plant Biochemistry reflects the latest DNA technology and provides more information on the unique adaptations of plants. - The biotransformation chapter provides a concise and understandable discussion of how potentially toxic substances are disposed of in animals (and, to a lesser extent, in plants).
