Notes: Revised edition of: Biochemical basis of medicine. 1985.
Description: xxii, 590 pages : illustrations ; 25 cm
Contents: Part 1 Biochemistry of the cell and its metabolism: ultrastructure of the mammalian cell; roles of extracellular and intracellular membranes - membrane structure and membrane transport; role of subcellular organelles - lysosomes; peroxisomes; metabolism in the cytosol; mitochondria and energy conservation; inter-relationships of the mitochondria and cytosol; the nucleus; the endoplasmic reticulum. Part 2 Whole body metabolism: nutrition - general aspects - energy requirements and the supply of energy by oxidation of foodstuffs - proteins in the diet - dietary fats - vitamins - inorganic constituents of the diet; digestion and absorption of foodstuffs; hormones - a summary of their structures and functions; plasma glucose and its regulation; plasma lipids and their regulation; plasma amino acids and utilization of amino acids by the tissues; plasma electrolytes; plasma calcium and phosphate - regulation by Vitamin D and parathyroid hormone; starvation. Part 3 Specialized metabolism of tissues: blood - erythropoiesis - role of folate and vitamin B12 - metabolism in the red blood cell - blood clotting - catabolism of haemoglobin - iron and iron metabolism; functions of the liver; the kidney; muscle; bone and collagen - calcification; the brain and the central nervous system; the eye. Part 4 Environmental hazards - detoxication: toxicology - general aspects; toxic metals; metabolism of xenobiotics - xenobiochemistry; alcohol - effects on metabolism; carcinogenesis. Part 5 Biochemical basis of diagnosis - disease and its treatment: biochemical diagnosis; an example of metabolic disturbance - obesity; biochemical genetics - inborn errors of metabolism; principles of chemotherapy. Apppendices: Commonly occuring mono- and disaccharides; polysaccharides - starch and glycogen; glycosaminoglycans (mucopolysaccharides) - proteoglycans; naturally occurring a-amino acids; lipid chemistry and classification; phospholipids; purine and pyrimidine bases; nucleosides - nucleotides; glycolysis; pentose phosphate pathway - outline of stages; citric acid cycle; b-oxidation of fatty acids in mitochondrium; biosynthesis of cholesterol; summary of amino acid metabolism; ornithine cycle - synthesis of urea; the genetic code; transfer of RNAs; steps in eukaryotic protein synthesis.
