Marks' Basic Medical Biochemistry: A Clinical Approach offers you a refreshingly different treatment of clinical chemistry. This well-written text provides a thorough, no nonsense approach to the science of biochemistry. It also addresses clinical relevance of the analytical procedures performed in the laboratory using case history presentations.
Section A discusses: Fuel metabolism, and types of fuels; chemical and biological foundations of biochemistry, inclduing acids, bases and buffers, amino acids, enzymes, cell biology, and chemical messengers; gene expression and the synthesis of proteins, covering structure of nucleic acids, DNA and RNA synthesis, regulation of gene expression, recombinant DNA techniques, and biology of cancer.
Section B discusses: Fuel oxidation and the generation of ATP, including bioenergetics, the tricarboxylic acid cycle, oxidative phosphorylation and mitochondrial function, glycosis, oxidation of fatty acids and ketone bodies, free radical injury, and metabolism of ethanol; carbohydrate metabolism, covering regulation of fuel metabolism by insulin, glucagon, and other hormones, digestion, absorption, and transport orf carbohydrates, metabolism of glycogen, pentose phosphate pathway, glycoproteins and glycolipids, and maintenance of blood glucose levels; lipid metabolism, including digestion and transport, synthesis of fatty acids and the major membrane lipids, cholesterol metabolism, eicosanoids, and integration of carbohydrate and lipid metabolism.
Section C discusses: Nitrogen metabolism, including protein digestion and amino acid absorption, the urea cycle, synthesis and degradation of amino acids, folic acid and Vitamin B12, purine and pyrimidine metabolism, and intertissue relationships in the metabolism of amino acids; tissue metabolism, including actions of hormones, biochemistry of erythrocytes and other blood cells, plasma proteins, coagulation, fibrinolysis, liver function, metabolism of muscle, metabolism of the nervous system, and biochemistry of connective tissue.
