“Michal and Schomburg (Technische Univ. Carolo-Whilhelmina, Germany) have reorganized, updated, and greatly expanded (over 100 pages of new content) this unique resource, keeping it an essential biochemical reference. Summing Up: Essential. Biochemistry collections, upper-division undergraduates through professionals.” (Choice, 1 August 2013)
“Biochemical Pathways, Second Edition is recommended for all students and researchers in such fields as biochemistry, molecular biology, medicine, organic chemistry, and pharmacology. The book's illustrated pathways aids the reader in understanding the complex set of biochemical reactions that occur in biological systems.” (Kingbook73.blogspot, 23 April 2013)
“This book, not too scary to read thanks to its compact size, served as a great reading for the incoming graduate students from the biology department and the chemical engineering department alike.” (Biotechnology Journal, 1 January 2013)
The pathways and networks underlying biological function
Now in its second edition, Biochemical Pathways will continue to garner praise from students, instructors, and researchers for its clear, full-color illustrations of the pathways and networks that determine biological function.
Biochemical Pathways examines the biochemistry of bacteria, plants, and animals. It offers a quick overview of the metabolic sequences in biochemical pathways, the chemistry and enzymology of conversions, the regulation of turnover, the expression of genes, the immunological interactions, and the metabolic background of health disorders. A standard set of conventions is used in all illustrations, enabling readers to easily gather information and compare the key elements of different biochemical pathways. For both quick and in-depth understanding, the book uses a combination of:
In the second edition, the volume has been expanded by 50 percent. Text and figures have undergone a thorough revision and update, reflecting the tremendous progress in biochemical knowledge in recent years. A guide to the relevant biochemical databases facilitates access to the extensive documentation of scientific knowledge.
