This introduction to biochemistry emphasizes the fundamentals, integrated with a thorough treatment of the molecules and pathways of living chemistry. The book begins with the structures and functions of biomolecules, takes the student through bioenergies, and the pathways of synthesis and degradations, and concludes with a section on biological information - the molecular biology of the gene. An integrated understanding of the subject is conveyed by emphasizing the chemistry of biochemistry and systematically relating the physical properties of molecules to their biochemical roles. Selective emphasis on the most important topics (properties of enzymes, pathway dynamics and stereochemistry) contribute to a preparation in the basics of biochemistry.

H. Robert Horton. Dr. Horton, who received his Ph.D from the University of Missouri.in 1962, is William Neal Reynolds Professor Emeritus and Alumni Distinguished Professor Emeritus in the Department of Biochemistry at North Carolina State University, where he served on the faculty for over 30 years. Most of Professor Horton's research was in protein and enzyme mechanisms.
Laurence A. Moran. After earning his Ph.D from Princeton University in 1974, Professor Moran spent four years at the Universite de Geneve in Switzerland. He has been a member of the Department of Biochemistry at the University of Toronto since 1978, specializing in molecular biology and molecular evolution. His research findings on heat-shock genes have been published in many scholarly journals.
Raymond S. Ochs. Professor Ochs, who earned his Ph.D from Indiana University, is a Professor in the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences at St. John's University. He is an expert on metabolic regulation and has edited a monograph on this topic—Ochs, R. S., Hanson, R. W., and Hall, J., eds. Metabolic Regulation (1985, Elsevier)—and authored and coauthored numerous research papers and reports.
J. David Rawn. Professor Rawn, who received his Ph.D from Ohio State University in 1971, has taught and done research in the Department of Chemistry at Towson State University for the past 25 years. He did not write chapters for Principles of Biochemistry, but his textbook Biochemistry (1989, Neil Patterson) served as a source of information and ideas concerning content and organization and the use of stereo images to illuminate molecular structures and conformational change.
K. Gray Scrimgeour. Professor Scrimgeour received his doctorate from the University of Washington in 1961 and has been a faculty member at the University of Toronto since 1967. He is the author of The Chemistry and Control of Enzymatic Reactions (1977, Academic Press), and his work on enzymatic systems has been published in more than 50 professional journal articles during the past 40 years. From 1984-1992, he was editor of the journal Biochemistry and Cell Biology.From the Back Cover:
The twelfth edition of this classic dictionary, first published eighty years ago, has been updated throughout, rewritten for clarity and reorganised to make it even easier to use.
* over 23,000 entries
