Description

Principles of Plant Biochemistry focuses on the methodologies, approaches, and techniques employed in plant biochemistry, including analysis of proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins, and metabolism.

The publication first takes a look at proteins and carbohydrates. Discussions focus on general properties and structure of proteins, amino acid composition of proteins and properties of the protein molecule, isolation of proteins and the establishment of their homogeneity, monosaccharides, polysaccharides, and steroids. The text then elaborates on vitamins and secondary plant compounds, including aliphatic organic acids, glycosides, tannins, essential oils and resins, herbicides, antibiotics, and phytonicides.

The manuscript examines enzymes and the role of metabolism in living organisms, as well as general properties and classification of enzymes and oxidases. The book then ponders on photosynthesis and chemosynthesis, interconversion of carbohydrates, and fermentation and respiration. The inter-relationship of metabolic processes and amino acid and protein metabolism are also discussed.

The publication is a dependable reference for readers interested in plant biochemistry.
