Overview

The first comprehensive survey of metabolism, this book offers an in-depth examination of metabolism and regulation of carbohydrates, lipids, and amino acids. It provides a basic background on metabolic regulation and adaptation—as well as the chemical logic of metabolism—and covers the interrelationship of metabolism to the life processes of the whole organism. The book covers the metabolic basis of disease, including the normal pathways of metabolism, altered pathways leaading to disease, and use of molcular genetics in diagnosis and treatment of disease. It also takes a unique comparative approach in which human metabolism is a reference for metabolism in microorganisms and plant design, and it presents novel coverage of development and aging, and human health and animal adaptation.
