Book Description

Biochemistry Second Edition, is a single-semester text designed for undergraduate non-biochemistry majors. Accessible, engaging, and informative, it is the perfect introduction to the subject for students who may approach chemistry with apprehension. Its unique emphasis on metabolism and its kinetic underpinnings gives the text up-to-the-minute relevance for students investigating current public health concerns, such as obesity and diabetes. Biochemistry Second Edition will encourage students to explore the basics of chemistry and its influence on biological problems.

Key Features:

  • Provides an understanding of (mostly) enzymatic reactions that are responsible for the function and maintenance of living things.
  • This innovative text for non-biochemistry majors includes introductory material at the beginning of each chapter that contextualizes chapter themes in real-life scenarios.
  • Online supporting materials with further opportunities for research and investigation.
  • Synthesis questions at the end of each chapter that encourage students to make connections between concepts and ideas, as well as develop critical-thinking skills.

About the Author:

Raymond S. Ochs is a biochemist with a career-long specialty in metabolism spanning 30 years. Previously, he has written the textbook Biochemistry, contributed the metabolism chapters to another text, Principles of Biochemistry, and co-edited a collection of articles published as Metabolic Regulation, and the recent monograph Metabolic Strucure and Regulation. His research interests concern major pathways of liver and muscle, including glycolysis, gluconeogenesis, ureogenesis, fatty acid metabolism, glycogen metabolism, and control by cAMP, Ca2+, diacylglycerol, and AMPK. He is currently professor of pharmacy at St. John’s University in New York, teaching biochemistry, physiology, and medicinal chemistry.
