Book Description

Biochemical Pathways An Atlas of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Edited by Gerhard Michal Modern biochemistry is a complex field, combining areas of cell biology, molecular biology, medicine, immunology, genetics-even neuroscience. Many of these disciplines converge in the dynamic arena of research dealing with metabolic processes and other mechanisms present at the cellular and molecular level. Biochemical Pathways offers a truly unique road map to modern biochemistry. In full and vivid color, it features detailed charts-each color-coded and accompanied by a brief explanation-of metabolic pathways and their relationship to regulation pathways. Important mechanisms of molecular biology are reviewed in the second part of the book. This encyclopedic compendium goes well beyond traditional biochemistry to cover some very specialized pathways and many aspects of regulation. The clear, systematic presentation includes:
* Metabolic structures and reaction mechanisms
* The intermediates and enzymes involved
* Metabolic branching points
* Transcription and translation
* Signal transduction
* Transport mechanisms
* Blood coagulation, immunology, and the complement system
Current, referenced, and easy-to-use, Biochemical Pathways is bound to become a classic in the field. It is a one-of-a-kind visual guide for researchers and scholars in all areas of the life sciences. 


"Biochemical Pathways…" – An excellent reference guide, May 25, 2000

The book "Biochemical Pathways…" is the book of choice if you quickly need information on a particular biochemical reaction, substrate or enzyme and serves well as an excellent reference guide. It is a comprehensive book version of the well-known Boehringer Mannheim wallchart "Biochemical Pathways" that can surely be found in almost every laboratory on the world. The book is color-coded and in addition to the enormous biochemical wallchart data gives a large body of overview information about fundamental aspects concerning enzyme structure, viruses and even the immune system.
