Description

Comprehensive Biochemistry, Volume 18S: Pyruvate and Fatty Acid Metabolism focuses on the processes, methodologies, principles, and reactions involved in pyruvate and fatty acid metabolism, including broad outlines of the metabolism of amino acids, proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, and their derived products.

The selection first ponders on pyruvate dehydrogenase complex and citric acid cycle. Numerical analyses of the various reaction sequences are presented. The text also takes a look at fatty acid metabolism. Discussions focus on fatty acid oxidation and biosynthesis, elongation and desaturation of fatty acids, and control of fatty acid oxidation and biosynthesis.

The book is a valuable reference for researchers interested in pyruvate and fatty acid metabolism.
