Medical Biochemistry 1st Edition
by Gustavo Blanco (Author), Antonio Blanco (Author)
Medical Biochemistry is supported by over forty years of teaching experience, providing coverage of basic biochemical concepts, including the structure and physical and chemical properties of hydrocarbons, lipids, proteins, and nucleotides in a straightforward and easy to comprehend language. The book develops these concepts into the more complex aspects of biochemistry using a systems approach, dedicating chapters to the integral study of biological phenomena, including particular aspects of metabolism in some organs and tissues, and the biochemical bases of endocrinology, immunity, vitamins, hemostasis, and apoptosis.
- Integrates basic biochemistry principles with molecular biology and molecular physiology
- Provides translational relevance to basic biochemical concepts though medical and physiological examples
- Utilizes a systems approach to understanding biological phenomena
