Amino Acids: Biochemistry and Nutrition by Guoyao Wu

By Guoyao Wu

Amino acid biochemistry and foodstuff spans a vast diversity of fields together with biochemistry, metabolism, body structure, immunology, copy, pathology, and telephone biology. within the final half-century, there were many conceptual and technical developments, from research of amino acids by way of high-performance liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry to molecular cloning of transporters for amino acids and small peptides. Amino Acids: Biochemistry and Nutrition offers entire assurance of those clinical advancements, supplying an invaluable reference for college students and researchers in either biomedicine and agriculture.

The textual content starts with the discoveries and uncomplicated strategies of amino acids, peptides, and proteins, after which strikes to protein digestion and absorption of peptides and amino acids. extra chapters conceal cell-, tissue-, and species-specific synthesis and catabolism of amino acids and comparable nitrogenous components, in addition to using isotopes to review amino acid metabolism in cells and the physique. The e-book additionally info protein synthesis and degradation, legislation of amino acid metabolism, physiological features of amino acids, and inborn mistakes of amino acid metabolism. the ultimate bankruptcy discusses nutritional necessities of amino acids by way of people and different animals.

While emphasizing simple ideas and classical innovations of amino acid biochemistry and food, the writer contains fresh development within the box. This publication additionally offers concise assurance of significant historic advancements of the clinical self-discipline, in order that readers will get pleasure from the prior, comprehend the present kingdom of the information, and discover the way forward for the sphere. each one bankruptcy comprises opt for references to supply complete experiences and unique experimental info at the themes discussed.
