Protein: The Basis of All Life examines the relationship between pulsatory cycles and metabolic cycles happening inside a protein. This book discusses the process of photosynthesis, the production of glycosides, and the importance of fat-soluble and water-soluble vitamins.
The introductory chapters deal with the process of anaerobic glycosis; factors involved in the aerobic glycolysis; steps in the citric acid cycle; description of glucose resynthesis; description of the method of transamination; process involved in the production of fats; features of steroids synthesis; and source of nitrogen compounds. The subsequent chapters consider the components of nucleotides, the contents of porphyrin compounds, and the reproductive cycle. The mechanisms of the inflammation-cancer cycle are presented. The concluding chapters are devoted to the chemotherapeutic remedies to be derived from the integrated endocrine glandular system.
The book can provide useful information to doctors, endocrinologists, students, and researchers.
