Biochemistry - Text Only - 2nd edition

by Reginald H. Garrett and Charles M. Grisham

Biochemistry - Text Only (ISBN10: 0030223180; ISBN13: 9780030223181)
ISBN13: 978-0030223181
ISBN10: 0030223180

Summary: This beautifully and consistently illustrated text gives junior or senior science majors in an introductory course the most current presentation of biochemistry available. Written by a chemist and a biologist, the book presents biochemistry from balanced perspectives.
Key Features

  • Critical Developments in Biochemistry boxes pique student interest with information on new advances and t ...show moreechnologies.
  • A Deeper Look boxes explore material more in-depth, such as historical information or special-interest topics.
  • Human Biochemistry boxes focus on topics related to medical biochemistry.
  • Chapter 3 on Bioenergetics presents fundamental thermodynamic relationships useful for understanding energetics of cellular metabolism.
  • In Chapters 5 and 6, and appearing throughout the rest of the book, a gallery of ribbon diagrams and space-filling computer graphics captures the diversity of biomolecules (developed at the University of Virginia).
  • Chapter 13, on recombinant DNA, illustrates the enormous power of this new tool to biochemical research.
  • Chapter 32 recounts the biochemical approaches that "cracked"the genetic code.
  • Chapter 34 pulls together an up-to-date perspective on the rapidly changing fields of cellular signaling, covering hormone action, oncogenes, neurological disorders, and many others.
  • Four-color molecular graphics developed specifically for the book give three dimension to many complex biomolecules. Color- coding of the molecules makes them easy to identify.
  • Sound pedagogy, including helpful in-text examples, end-of-chapter references and problems, contributes to students' mastery of the material.
New Features
  • Reorganization of chapters results in a single text with some chapters eliminated, several shortened, and some combined.
  • New "Critical Developments in Biochemistry," "Human Biochemistry" and "A Deeper Look" boxes include: A Fad Diet--Low Carbohydrates, High Protein, High Fat, Fool's Gold and the Reductive Citric Acid Cycle--The First Metabolic Pathway?, Melittin--How to Sting Like a Bee, Telomeres--A timely End to Chromosomes, and Knockout Mice: A Method to Investigate the Essentiality of the Gene.
  • About 20% of the text has been rewritten to increase the clarity of expression and to include new developments in biochemistry.
  • Much of the artwork is new or modified. Icons used in the previous edition for small molecules have been eliminated for a better over-all design.
  • Membrane Transport, formerly a chapter in the supplement, is now a chapter (10) in the text, making for a more logical link with the previous chapter (9) on membranes.
  • Introductory chapter on nucleic acids and recombinant DNA are now grouped together as Chapters 11-13 for a more cohesive presentation.
  • A new chapter (17) discusses proteins that turn chemical energy into the mechanics of movement.
