Metabolism At a Glance (3RD 04 Edition)by Jack Salway
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
Metabolism at a Glance is a complete review course of metabolism in health and disease and offers a unique approach to the study of this difficult discipline.
Metabolism is a complicated subject involving complex molecules and interrelated pathways. These metabolic pathways are usually taught separately with the result that the student develops a detailed but compartmentalised approach to metabolism and frequently fails to see the overall picture and its physiological significance.
Using the at a Glance format, the book takes the student through a complete course in intermediary metabolism in an integrated manner. The same chart is repeated throughout the book with the individual pathway under study highlighted.
The book is an ideal text for introductory biochemistry courses and has established itself as an enormously popular book amongst lecturers and students alike. This third edition is fully updated and includes five new chapters to mirror those topics currently taught at undergraduate level:
1. Metabolic Channelling
2. Glucose homeostasis and Reye's Disease
3. Pentose phosphate pathway and the prodcution of NADPH
4. Tryptophan metabolism in health and disease
5. Tyrosine metabolism in health and disease
A guide to metabolic pathways. The third edition features five new chapters.
On the first edition:
"...a highly comprehensive set of notes and pathway maps concentrated exclusively on metabolism. If you are after an easy going metabolism book for revision or as a good reference guide, this would be the ideal choice, as it is not too daunting to read and had plenty of well-organised pathway maps to keep you busy. This is especially useful for first year medics as part of their foundation study revision"
Leech y Gelen, University of Wales College of Medicine"
"The book is easy to follow as the salient features of each metabolic pathway are highlighted on a detailed background map. This aided the introduction of the metabolic concepts in a very well-integrated fashion. The chapters on the more medical aspects will appeal especially to medical students as they correlate neatly the basic biochemical principles with the development of some metabolic diseases such as glycogen storage diseases."
