Biochemistry: A Short Course by John L. Tymoczko

By John L. Tymoczko

Derived from the vintage textual content originated through Lubert Stryer and persevered via John Tymoczko and Jeremy Berg, Biochemistry: a brief direction makes a speciality of the foremost themes taught in a one-semester biochemistry path. With its brief chapters and correct examples, it’s uniquely powerful in aiding scholars see the connections among the biochemistry they’re learning and their very own lives.

This new version takes under consideration fresh discoveries and advances that experience replaced how we predict concerning the basic thoughts in biochemistry and human overall healthiness. a couple of new interactive positive aspects are designed to aid teachers create a extra energetic setting within the school room.

Viva Voce Orals in Biochemistry

The assumption of penning this booklet of Viva Voce/Orals in Biochemistry is that, it's going to be a lot worthwhile to the MBBS and M. Sc. (Medical technology) scholars and postgraduate scholars for the education of exam. although it isn't a textbook of scientific Biochemistry, it really is framed within the type of questions and solutions in a simplified means.

Example text

In plants, the storage form of glucose is starch, which is similar to glycogen in molecular composition. There are thousands of different carbohydrates. They can be linked together in chains, and these chains can be highly branched, much more so than in glycogen or starch. Such chains of carbohydrates play important roles in helping cells to recognize one another. Many of the components of the cell exterior are decorated with various carbohydrates that can be identified by other cells and serve as sites of cell-to-cell interactions.

The cell wall is constructed largely from cellulose, a long, linear polymer of glucose molecules. Cellulose molecules interact with one another as well as with other cell-wall components to form a sturdy protective wall for the cell. 12 A plant cell. (A) Photomicrograph of a leaf cell. (B) Diagram of a typical plant cell. 13 The cytoskeleton. Microtubule Actin filament Intermediate filament Mitochondrion Plasma membrane Actin filaments, intermediate filaments, and microtubules are components of the cytoskeleton, which provides cell shape and contributes to cell movement.
