A concise, introductory text that fills the gap between the standard encyclopaedic volumes and the cursory overview texts. Widely praised in its previous edition for its accuracy, currency and clarity of exposition, the new edition has been thoroughly updated and revised to reflect recent changes in this dynamic discipline. A text for one-semester, introductory biochemistry courses, including courses for allied health students (nursing, pharmacy, dentistry). Ideal for instructors who want a strong chemical focus to explain how and why biological reactions happen. *NEW - Chapter on recombinant DNA technology teaches theory and practice in this important area. *NEW - Now includes carefully crafted end-of-chapter problems that are designed to test understanding of core concepts. Complete, step-by-step solutions are presented in an appendix. *NEW - Reorganization places a new chapter on nucleic acid structure immediately before the molecular biology section, and photosynthesis immediately after oxidative phosphorylation. *NEW - Condensed chapters on amino acid, lipid, and nucleotide metabolism stress core concepts. *NEW - Thoroughly revised and updated throughout to maintain the standard of currency and accuracy set by the previous edition. *NEW - Interactive problem-solving and other relevant material on the home page. (http://www.prenhall.com/~chem) *Unique focus on the principles and underlying themes of biochemistry. Balanced coverage of biomolecular structure, function, metabolism, and molecular biology. *Strong chemical focus. *Authoritatively written by a collaborative team of experts, the text features a seamless exposition and clear, lucid explanations. *Major emphasis on three-dimensional biochemistry. Unique computer-generated stereo views depict the conformation of biomolecules. A free stereo viewer is included with each text.

Widely praised in its previous edition for its accuracy, currency and clarity of exposition, the new edition has been thoroughly updated and revised to reflect recent changes in this dynamic discipline.From the Back Cover:
This accurate and up-to-date book focuses on the basic principles of Biochemistry, with carefully selected examples of each. The areas of greatest change since the second edition are lipid metabolism, oxidative phosphorylation, and protein metabolism. Includes stereo views of many macromolecules; computer supplement; a section on molecular evolution; protein structures; molecular evolution; and developments in the area of gene expression, including the structure of RNA polymerase, the structure of the ribosome, genome organization, repair mechanisms, regulation of transcription and translation, and the structure and evolution of aminoacy1-tRNA synthetases. For readers interested in Biochemistry.
