By David A. Bender

Amino Acid Metabolism, 3rd Edition covers all elements of the biochemistry and dietary biochemistry of the amino acids. beginning with an outline of nitrogen fixation and the incorporation of inorganic nitrogen into amino acids, the ebook then information different significant nitrogenous compounds in micro-organisms, crops and animals. Contents contain a dialogue of the catabolism of amino acids and different nitrogenous compounds in animals, and the microbiological reactions thinking about unlock of nitrogen gasoline again into the ambience. Mammalian (mainly human) protein and amino acid standards are thought of intimately, and the tools which are used to figure out them. 

Chapters give some thought to person amino acids, grouped in line with their metabolic foundation, and discussing their biosynthesis (in crops and micro-organisms for those who are nutritional necessities for human beings), significant metabolic roles (mainly in human metabolism) and catabolism (again frequently in human metabolism). there's additionally dialogue of regulatory mechanisms for these types of metabolic pathways, and of metabolic and genetic illnesses affecting the (human) metabolism of amino acids.

Throughout the booklet the emphasis is at the dietary value of amino acids, integration and keep an eye on of metabolism and metabolic and different disturbances of relevance to human biochemistry and health. 

  • Completely revised version of this finished textual content overlaying the entire most recent findings in amino acid metabolism research
  • Written through an expert within the field
  • Covers new advances in  structural biology
  • Clear illustrations of all buildings and metabolic pathways
  • Full checklist of instructed extra examining for every bankruptcy and bibliography of papers mentioned within the text
