By Laurence A Moran, Robert A Horton, Gray Scrimgeour, Marc Perry, David Rawn

Principles of Biochemistry provides a concise advent to basic options of biochemistry, impressive the suitable stability of rigor and element among the encyclopedic volumes and the cursory evaluate texts to be had this day. greatly praised for accuracy, forex, and readability of exposition, the Fifth Edition bargains a brand new student-friendly layout, an more desirable visible application, new software bins, modern learn built-in all through, and up to date end-of-chapter difficulties.

Neurophysiology in Neurosurgery: A Modern Intraoperative Approach

This e-book is now five years outdated, however it continues to be the simplest, such a lot complicated and such a lot entire e-book on intraoperative neurophysiology tracking. it isn't a rookies' ebook, at lest now not for rookies who do not have an intensive heritage in neurophysiology, yet it is an indispensible reference. every person with a major curiosity in IONM must have a replica.

Gene Therapy of the Central Nervous System: From Bench to Bedside

Few parts of biomedical learn offer better possibilities for extensively new cures for devastating ailments that experience avoided therapy thus far than gene treatment. this can be rather precise for the mind and frightened approach, the place gene move has develop into a key know-how for easy learn and has lately been translated to human remedy in different landmark scientific trials.

Biomechanics: Principles and Applications, Second Edition

Characteristically, functions of biomechanics will version system-level facets of the human physique. therefore, the vast majority of technological growth so far looks in system-level equipment improvement. extra lately, biomechanical projects are investigating organic sub-systems akin to tissues, cells, and molecules.

Thiol Redox Transitions in Cell Signaling, Part A: Chemistry and Biochemistry of Low Molecular Weight and Protein Thiols

This quantity, in addition to its spouse (volume 475), offers equipment and protocols facing thiol oxidation-reduction reactions and their implications as they relate to cell signaling. This first installment of Cadenas and Packer's two-volume therapy particularly bargains with glutathionylation and dethiolation, and peroxide removing by means of peroxiredoxins/thioredoxins and glutathione peroxidases.

Sample text

It can adopt numerous conformations in which certain ring atoms are out-of-plane. 5d, for example, the C-2 atom of ribose lies above the plane formed by the rest of the ring atoms. Some conformations are more stable than others, so the majority of ribose molecules can be represented by one or two of the many possible conformations. 3. 5 Representations of the structure of ribose. (a) In the Fischer projection, ribose is drawn as a linear molecule. (b) In its usual biochemical form, the ribose molecule is in a ring, shown here as a Fischer projection.

Sugar structures can be represented in several ways. 5a, on page 8). This linear representation is called a Fischer projection. 5b. 5c). This representation is a more accurate way of depicting the actual structure of ribose. The Haworth projection is rotated 90° with respect to the Fischer projection and portrays the carbohydrate ring as a plane with one edge projecting out of the page (represented by the thick lines). However, the ring is not actually planar. It can adopt numerous conformations in which certain ring atoms are out-of-plane.
