Amino Acid Metabolism, 3rd Edition covers all facets of the biochemistry and dietary biochemistry of the amino acids. beginning with an summary of nitrogen fixation and the incorporation of inorganic nitrogen into amino acids, the ebook then information different significant nitrogenous compounds in micro-organisms, vegetation and animals. Contents contain a dialogue of the catabolism of amino acids and different nitrogenous compounds in animals, and the microbiological reactions fascinated about unlock of nitrogen gasoline again into the ambience. Mammalian (mainly human) protein and amino acid requisites are thought of intimately, and the equipment which are used to figure out them.
Chapters think of person amino acids, grouped in response to their metabolic starting place, and discussing their biosynthesis (in vegetation and micro-organisms for those who are nutritional necessities for human beings), significant metabolic roles (mainly in human metabolism) and catabolism (again typically in human metabolism). there's additionally dialogue of regulatory mechanisms for a majority of these metabolic pathways, and of metabolic and genetic illnesses affecting the (human) metabolism of amino acids.
Throughout the ebook the emphasis is at the dietary value of amino acids, integration and regulate of metabolism and metabolic and different disturbances of relevance to human biochemistry and health.
