Presents the biochemistry of mammalian cells, relates events at a cellular level to the subsequent physiological processes in the whole animal, and cites examples of human diseases derived from aberrant biochemical processes. This sixth edition is a useful tool for students and professionals in the medical or health sciences.
Outstanding...classic...clear illustrations abound...an exceedingly thorough, accurate, and up-to-date volume. (The Quarterly Review of Biology) "A delightful book to read...I would recommend this book highly...for any who seek to understand the biochemical basis of disease..." (Annals of Clinical Biochemistry) "...a comprehensive biochemistry book...new material in key areas justifies the new edition..." (Doody's Health, April 19, 2002) "...This is a welcome and relatively inexpensive volume for students of biochemistry and especially those involved with clinical biochemistry". (Cell Biochemistry & Function, June 2003)
