Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Describes and explains the generation of biologically usable energy by oxidative processes in organisms. The initial chapter offers a simple approach to relevant thermodynamic principles. The book continues by presenting the basic information required to understand the ways in which biologically usable energy in the form of ATP is produced by means of oxidative pathways. The final chapters describe catabolic pathways--the TCA cycle, and carbohydrate, lipid, and amino acid breakdown. For undergraduate and graduate students in biochemistry, and for medical students.
