This text presents a fully integrated approach to biochemistry and medicine, rather than covering biochemistry on a topic by topic basis with a smattering of 'medical cases' to demonstrate relevance. Not intended to be an exhaustive, comprehensive reference; rather a concise, accessible guide that will help first year students, from a wide spectrum of backgrounds, gain a good basic understanding of the biochemistry behind common medical disorders.
The book covers areas of cellular physiology and metabolism that are of interest to scientists involved in research in diabetes and metabolic diseases. Fully comprehensive of the discipline, it is also suitable for university classes of graduate and undergraduate students. The book discusses classical aspects of cellular physiology and the metabolism of physical exercise, as well as novel topics like exercise in transplantation and exercise in beta-cell failure.
This book reveals the microworld of the human body in motion, from the motor proteins that produce force, to the signaling molecules that activate muscles, to the enzymes that extract energy from nutrients.
An integrated database system of hazardous chemicals, toxic releases and environmental health. Includes the Hazardous Substances Data Bank (HSDB), a database of potentially hazardous chemicals; TOXLINE, a database of references to the world's toxicology literature; and ChemIDplus, a chemical dictionary and structure database.
