Summary
This book covers in detail the mechanisms for how energy is managed in the human body. The basic principles that elucidate the reactivity and physical interactions of matter are addressed and quantified with simple approaches. Three-dimensional representations of molecules are presented throughout the book so molecules can be viewed as unique entities in their shape and function. The book is focused on the molecular mechanisms of cellular processes in the context of human physiological situations such as fasting, feeding and physical exercise, in which metabolic regulation is highlighted. Furthermore the book uses key historical experiments that opened up new concepts in Biochemistry to further illustrate how the human body functions at molecular level, helping students to appreciate how scientific knowledge emerges. This book also: · Elucidates the foundations of the molecular events of life · Uses key historical experiments that opened up new concepts in Biochemistry to further illustrate how the human body functions at molecular level, helping students to appreciate how scientific knowledge emerges · Provides realistic representations of molecules throughout the book Advance Praise for Integrative Human Biochemistry “This textbook provides a modern and integrative perspective of hum an biochemistry and will be a faithful companion to health science students following curricula in whic h this discipline is addressed. This textbook will be a most useful tool for the teaching community.” –Joan Guinovart Director of the Institute for Research in Biomedicine, Barcelona, Spain President-elect of the International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, IUBMB
