Functional Metabolism of Cells is the first comprehensive survey ofmetabolism, offering an in-depth examination of metabolism andregulation of carbohydrates, lipids, and amino acids. It provides abasic background on metabolic regulation and adaptation as well asthe chemical logic of metabolism, and covers the interrelationshipof metabolism to life processes of the whole organism. The booklays out a structured approach to the metabolic basis of disease,including discussion of the normal pathways of metabolism, alteredpathways leading to disease, and use of molecular genetics indiagnosis and treatment of disease. It also takes a uniquecomparative approach in which human metabolism is a reference formetabolism in microorganisms and plant design, and presents novelcoverage of development and aging, and human health and animaladaptation. The final chapter reviews the past and future promiseof new genetic approaches to treatment and bioinformatics.
This, the most exhaustive treatment of metabolism currentlyavailable, is a useful text for advanced undergraduates andgraduates in biochemistry, cell/molecular biology, and biomedicine,as well as biochemistry instructors and investigators in relatedfields.

From the Author:

This book builds on a student's knowledge of basic biochemistry to explore the design and regulation of metabolism illustrating principles, variations that underlie human health problems such as obesity and diabetes, and adaptations that allow animals to survive environmental extremes. Topics include enzyme regulation, antioxidant defense, control of gene transcription and protein translation, cell signaling, and hormonal controls with specialty chapters exploring mitochondrial function, the evolution of biochemical molecules, unique functions of blood cells, and organ transplantation.

From the Back Cover:

In the post-genome era, questions concerning gene products,enzymes, and metabolism are returning to the forefront of lifescience research. Genetic information on its own does not fullyaccount for an enzyme’s kinetic and regulatory properties orfor the behavior of the enzymes within its particular cellularmilieu. Unanswered questions about the regulation, integration, andadaptation of metabolism have led to a resurgence of interest inprotein, enzymological, and metabolic research for understandingbiological processes.

Functional Metabolism: Regulation and Adaptation provides acomprehensive survey of metabolism. It includes an in-depthexamination of the regulation of carbohydrates, lipids, and aminoacids, and approaches to the study of enzyme regulation, signaltransduction, and control of transcription and translation. Thecontributors–an internationally recognized group ofresearchers–also cover:

  • The metabolic basis of diabetes, obesity, and blooddisorders
  • Oxidative stress and antioxidant defenses in health anddisease
  • Novel perspectives on biochemical adaptation to environmentalstress
  • Application of metabolic knowledge to developments in organpreservation and understanding the origin of life

From the basics of metabolic regulation and adaptation to thelatest relevant advances in the genetic, proteomic, and enzymaticbasis of how cells regulate their functions, Functional Metabolism:Regulation and Adaptation offers the most exhaustive treatment ofthe subject currently available. It is an essential text forstudents and practitioners in biochemistry, cell and molecularbiology, and biomedicine.
