Amino Acid Metabolism

Front Cover
Wiley, Sep 12, 1985 - Science - 272 pages
This second edition of a successful advanced level text links the brief treatment given to amino acid metabolism in most undergraduate biochemistry texts and the more advanced research work that is taking place. Focusing on the relevance of biochemistry to human problems, it covers nitrogen levels and pathways, protein turnover and nutritional aspects of amino acid metabolism, and integrates mechanistic and physiological biochemistry and related mechanisms of metabolic regulation and control. Improved bibliography guides the student to review articles and key original papers.
