Genre: Education

ORGANIC CHEMISTRY is a student-friendly, cutting edge introduction for chemistry, health, and the biological sciences majors. In the Eighth Edition, award-winning authors build on unified mechanistic themes, focused problem-solving, applied pharmaceutical problems and biological examples. Stepwise reaction mechanisms emphasize similarities among mechanisms using four traits: breaking a bond, making a new bond, adding a proton, and taking a proton away. Pull-out organic chemistry reaction roadmaps designed stepwise by chapter help students devise their own reaction pathways. Additional features designed to ensure student success include in-margin highlighted integral concepts, new end-of-chapter study guides, and worked examples. This edition also includes brand new author-created videos. Emphasizing “how-to” skills, this edition is packed with challenging synthesis problems, medicinal chemistry problems, and unique roadmap problems.

Publisher: CRC Press
ISBN: 9781439882443
Release Date: 2009-09-15
Genre: Medical

Today’s knowledge of human health demands a multidisciplinary understanding of medically related sciences, and Case Studies in the Physiology of Nutrition answers the call. Dedicated to the integration of nutrition science with physiology, this text cohesively incorporates descriptions of human problems in order to stimulate students’ critical thinking about how the body integrates various physiological factors to maintain homeostasis. Contains Key Points, Vocabulary Exercises, and Critical Thinking Problems This textbook uses short story-type case studies about fictional individuals who have health problems in order to address a range of issues in an approachable manner. The studies vary in difficulty, with some being straightforward with very simple answers, while others require in-depth thinking and literature research to solve. Each study presents patient background, symptoms, clinical finding, and questions to ponder. Upon qualifying course adoption, this book also includes a valuable instructor’s manual, which provides solutions to exercises, problem analysis, and resolution to each case study. This ready-to-implement resource addresses: Homeostasis Obesity and malnutrition Anemia and diabetes Nutrient–gene expression Immune system Food safety Aging and nutrition Muscle and bone studies Case Studies in the Physiology of Nutrition provides an understanding of nutritional components by defining biochemical, mechanical, and physical functions. Its unique approach will aid students in relating functionality to system failure as well as understanding the role of environment in health and nutrition.

Lipid Biochemistry An Introduction

Author: M. I. Gurr
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9789400959071
Release Date: 2012-12-06
Genre: Science

In the preface to the Second edition, we made a prediction that many exciting developments would take place in the coming years that would change the face of a new edition. This has indeed been the case and the current edition reflects these new advances. Our picture of the structure of the fatty acid synthetase has changed dramatically, bringing a new concept in enzymology - the multicatalytic polypeptide chain. This new knowledge owes much to the exploitation of genetic mutants, the use of which is undoubtedly going to extend into many other areas of lipid biochemistry. An understanding of the control of lipid metabolism has also advanced considerably during the last decade and we have tried to reflect that here, although it will be some years before a truly integrated picture can be obtained. For this reason we have continued to deal with the control of particular aspects of lipid metabolism - fatty acids, triacylglycerols, lipoprotein- in the specific chapters but we can foresee the time when a chapter on the overall integration of lipid metabolism will be appropriate and feasible. As a particular example, the exciting new concepts of the control of cholesterol metabolism in specific tissues via the interaction of low density lipoproteins with cell surface receptors have been described in Chapter 6.

Genre: Science

The 48 experiments in this well-conceived manual illustrate important concepts and principles in general, organic, and biochemistry. As in previous editions, three basic goals guided the development of all the experiments: (1) the experiments illustrate the concepts learned in the classroom; (2) the experiments are clearly and concisely written so that students will easily understand the task at hand, will work with minimal supervision because the manual provides enough information on experimental procedures, and will be able to perform the experiments in a 2-1/2 hour laboratory period; and (3) the experiments are not only simple demonstrations, but also contain a sense of discovery. This edition includes many revised experiments and two new experiments.
