By Harry R. Matthews;Richard A. Freedland;Roger L. Miesfeld

Harry R. Matthews, PhD, Richard Freedland, PhD, Roger L. Miesfeld, PhDNo medical self-discipline has skilled such explosive development or attracted loads renowned cognizance during the last numerous many years because the examine of lifestyles on the molecular point. the main quantitative of organic sciences, biochemistry reviews the chemical parts of residing topic; the reactions those elements suffer; the lively alterations that accompany such reactions; and the association, replication, and expression of genes.Biochemistry: a brief path introduces scholars to the basics of this attention-grabbing medical self-discipline. in accordance with the authors' years of expertise educating graduate, undergraduate, classes, this complete advent caters to the categorical wishes of researchers and scholars who needs to familiarize themselves swiftly with center techniques, rules, and theories. scholars are afforded a different chance to reach at an entire realizing of significant present and pending achievements within the box, with no need to plow through extraneous technical information and long theoretical discussions extra applicable to a lab guide or really good textual content. Identifies key thoughts and covers the necessities for nonmajors and somebody trying to find a concise overview of recent points of biochemistry * excellent for speedy overview, follows the seriously acclaimed brief path structure, with considerable transparent illustrations of key strategies * contains heavily similar components of molecular and cellphone biology * positive aspects functional examples, together with melanoma and different ailments, drawn essentially from people this is the precise textbook for clinical scholars in addition to graduates and undergraduates in biochemistry, clinical biochemistry, and molecular biology classes. it's also a superb choice for technicians and comparable execs who are looking to evaluate glossy features of biochemistry in a concise structure.

Sample text

The human genome comprises the information contained in one set of human chromosomes which themselves contain about 3 billion base pairs (bp) of DNA in 24 chromosomes (22 autosomes + 2 sex chromosomes; chromosomes are discussed in Chapter 5). Each DNA molecule is a linear, unbranched, polymer of great length (on the order of centimeters) in comparison to its width of 2 nanometers (nm). The great length of a DNA molecule is illustrated by calculating the length of DNA present in one adult human.

Molecules and Cells A molecule is a specific group of atoms connected together by covalent bondsshared electron clouds. Molecules in the body may be relatively simple, such as the oxygen molecule, , or highly complex, such as the massive glycoproteins that insulate cells from mechanical shock. Biological molecules interact with one another primarily through noncovalent interactions. In general, such interactions are individually weak and nonspecific, but the body harnesses these seemingly innocuous forces to generate extraordinary specificity and strength.

6. Intermolecular interactions are key to a cell's function and they occur through an array of many small noncovalent forces including electrostatic interactions, hydrogen bonds, steric hindrance, Van der Waals interactions, and hydrophobic interactions.
