Physiology and Pathophysiology of Plasma Protein Metabolism is a collection of papers that discuss the advancement along with problems in the study of physiology and pathophysiology of plasma protein metabolism. The title first covers the concerns in the separation, purification, and labeling of proteins. Next, the selection covers topics in kinetics, such as whole-body counting in metabolic studies of 131-labelled proteins. Part 3 tackles the regulation and synthesis of protein, while Part 4 discusses the protein-losing syndrome.
The book will be of great use to students, researchers, and practitioners of clinical laboratory sciences.
