Newer Methods of Nutritional Biochemistry: With Applications and Interpretations, Volume V, presents discussions and reviews of procedures that may have a significant impact on the future progress of the science of nutrition. Comprised of seven chapters, this book discusses the nutritional and metabolic aspects of circadian rhythms; the relationship of amino acid requirements in terms of amino acid composition and availability from various food sources; and the characteristics of protein-calorie malnutrition. It also describes methods, biochemical mechanisms, and dietary factors that influence the metabolic conversion of dietary carbohydrates into lipid moieties. The book examines the influence of nutritional factors on ribosomal dynamics and discusses the isolation, physical, and biochemical characteristics of proteinase inhibitors found in soy and lima beans and other edible vegetable seeds. A novel method for determining the biological value of protein foodstuffs is also included. This book will be a valuable resource for graduate students and investigators in nutrition and other life sciences.
