Product description

Review

On the first edition:
.,."a highly comprehensive set of notes and pathway maps concentrated exclusively on metabolism. If you are after an easy going metabolism book for revision or as a good reference guide, this would be the ideal choice, as it is not too daunting to read and had plenty of well-organised pathway maps to keep you busy. This is especially useful for first year medics as part of their foundation study revision"
Leech y Gelen, University of Wales College of Medicine"
"The book is easy to follow as the salient features of each metabolic pathway are highlighted on a detailed background map. This aided the introduction of the metabolic concepts in a very well-integrated fashion. The chapters on the more medical aspects will appeal especially to medical students as they correlate neatly the basic biochemical principles with the development of some metabolic diseases such as glycogen storage diseases."

From the Back Cover

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.
