Metabolism at a Glance
Metabolism at a Glance is a complete review course of metabolism in health and disease, offering a unique approach to the study of this difficult discipline. Throughout the book, metabolism is presented in an integrated manner. This provides the reader with an overview of separate inter–related pathways as well as ‘the big picture’ for a greater understanding of the whole subject. Using the classic ‘at a glance’ format of double–page spreads, the book successfully explains complicated metabolic processes by highlighting the core features in detailed maps whilst the text provides further explanation.
The third edition of this bestseller is fully updated and includes six new chapters to mirror those topics currently taught at undergraduate level. New chapters cover metabolic channeling, tryptophan metabolism, tyrosine metabolism in health and disease, and Reye’s syndrome. The chapters on glycolysis and the pentose phosphate pathway have been extended. The rapid progress in understanding of the intracellular mechanisms of insulin action in relation to diabetes has necessitated substantial revision and extension of these chapters.
Metabolism at a Glance will be an essential resource for students on medical, biochemistry, veterinary, sports science and nutrition courses requiring a knowledge of intermediary metabolism. Those who need an authoritative yet concise guide to metabolism, such as examination candidates, biomedical scientists, and clinicians specializing in diabetes as well as inborn errors of metabolism, will find this book invaluable. The book is designed to fit into the reading time as well as the budget of students and trainees and has established itself as an enormously popular book amongst students and lecturers alike.
