A comprehensive account of the chemical basis of life, this classic volume has been a well-respected contribution to the field for more than twenty years. In this groundbreaking two-volume second edition, the complex structures of compounds that make up cells are described in detail, along with the forces that hold them together, and the chemical reactions that allow for recognition, signaling, and movement. There is also ample information on the human body, its genome, and the action of muscles, eyes, and the brain. Metzler's Biochemistry deals also with the natural world, treating the metabolism of bacteria, toxins, antibiotics, specialized compounds made by plants, photosynthesis, luminescence of fireflies, and many other topics.
