About this book

Originally published in 1937, The Metabolism of Living Tissues contains a general overview of 'the dynamic side of biochemistry', namely how cells process and produce energy. Holmes considers the metabolic activity of many different tissues, such as the liver and heart, as well as the role played by hormones and vitamins. The Metabolism of Living Tissues will be of value to anyone with an interest in the history of science and the study of biochemistry.
