Bioenergetics book cover

Bioenergetics

Extensively revised, the fourth edition of this highly successful book takes into account the many newly determined protein structures that provide molecular insight into chemiosmotic energy transduction, as well as reviewing the explosive advances in 'mitochondrial physiology'-the role of the mitochondria in the life and death of the cell.

Covering mitochondria, bacteria and chloroplasts, the fourth edition of Bioenergetics provides a clear and comprehensive account of the chemiosmotic theory and its many applications. The figures have been carefully designed to be memorable and to convey the key functional and mechanistic information. Written for students and researchers alike, Bioenergetics is the most well-known, current and respected text on chemiosmotic theory and membrane bioenergetics available.

Audience
Undergraduates, graduates, postgraduates, and researchers working in biochemistry and the biological sciences.

Reviews

  • "Nicholls and Ferguson present this text on cellular energy flow, focusing on electrochemical physiology of mitochondria, chloroplasts, and bacteria…The book is technical, focused, and gives a highly detailed account of intracellular thermodynamics."--Reference & Research Book News, December 2013
    "Not only is Bioenergetics 3 comprehensive, but the material is presented in a reassuringly accessible form. ...this text is supremely successful."--THE BIOCHEMIST (December 2003)
    "Bioenergetics 3 is a worthy successor to the second edition, and one that I can enthusiastically recommend."--Aubrey D.N.J. de Grey University of Cambridge for MITOCHONDRION (2002)
