From the Publisher:

Biochemical Processes presented, wherever possible, in a cellular or organismal context. Examples include the urea cycle (Ch. 14), fatty acid metabolism (Ch.10), the glyoxylate cycle (Ch. 11), and gluconeogenesis and calcium metabolism (Ch. 8)
Plant Biochemistry reflects the latest DNA technology and provides more information on the unique adaptations of plants.
Biotransformation Chapter (Ch. 19) provides a concise and understandable discussion of how potentially toxic substances are disposed of in animals (and to a lesser extent in plants).
Unique Discussions of Oxidative Stress. McKee provides a concise explanation of the biochemical consequences of the interaction of oxygen radicals and biomolecules and the role antioxidant play in the prevention of further damage.
For each class of biomolecules, molecular structure and function is presented followed immediately by the role it plays in metabolism. For example, a chapter devoted to primarily to glucose and glycogen metabolism (Ch. 8) follows the chapter devoted to carbohydrate structure (Ch. 7).
First Four Chapters-An Introduction and Review.
Chapters 1-4 present a review of basic biology, organic chemistry, and general chemistry.
