Un ottimo testo di biochimica, orientato soprattutto agli studenti di medicina. Ho trovato qualche errore - ma tolgono pochissimo alla qualità del prodotto. Numerose e interessanti le correlazioni cliniche; gli argomenti sono spiegati con chiarezza e ricchezza di particolari senza perdere in compattezza e sinteticità. Richiede una certa dimestichezza con le conoscenze di base della biochimica (macromolecole, struttura della cellula, etc.), e dunque è poco adatto per chi è alle prime armi con la materia. ( )

Book description
This newly revised and updated fifth edition of Devlin’s Textbook of Biochemistry with Clinical Correlations presents the biochemistry of mammalian cells, relates events at the cellular level to physiological processes in the whole animal, and cites examples of human diseases derived from aberrant biochemical processes.
This edition significantly expands the clinical correlation that highlight the significance of biochemistry to specific clinical problems. Full-color illustrations provide clear explanations for the concepts discussed, and end-of-chapter questions and answers act as challenging study material. Reorganized into five practical sections, Textbook of Biochemistry with Clinical Correlations covers these topics and much more:
Structure of macromolecules–DNA, RNA, and protein structure

Information transmission–replication, transcription, protein synthesis, and control of gene expression

Functions of proteins–protein families, enzymes, membrane structure, and transport mechanisms

Metabolic pathways and their control–carbohydrate, lipid, amino acid, and nucleotide metabolism

Physiological processes–hormone and signal transduction, biochemistry of nervous tissue, muscle vision, coagulation and digestion, and principles of nutrition

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0470281731, Hardcover)

This book presents a clear and precise discussion of the biochemistry of eukaryotic cells, particularly those of mammalian tissues, relates biochemical events at a cellular level to the subsequent physiological processes in the whole animal, and cites examples of abnormal biochemical processes in human disease. The organization and content are tied together to provide students with the complete picture of biochemistry and how it relates to human diseases.
