Chemistry provides readers with an understanding of how fundamental chemical
concepts are used to combat some diseases. Topics covered includes: Chemical
Principles in Drug Design and Discovery, chemical Basis of Drug Action and
Diseases, Strategies to Develop New and Better Drugs.
Sir Arthur Harden, was a British
biochemist. He shared the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1929 with Hans Karl August
Simon von Euler-Chelpin for their investigations into the fermentation of sugar
and fermentative enzymes. Topics covered in this book are: Historical
Introduction, Zymase and its Properties, The Function of Phosphates in Alcoholic
Fermentation, The Co-Enzyme of Yeast-Juice, Action of Some Inhibiting and
Accelerating Agents on the Enzymes of Yeast-Juice, Carboxylase, The By-Products
of Alcoholic Fermentation, The Chemical Changes involved in Fermentation, The
Mechanism of Fermentation.
This book covers the
following topics: Glycolysis, Gluconeogenesis, Glycogenolysis and
Glycogenesis, Mitochondria, Tricarboxylic Acid Cycle, Respiratory Chain,
and Oxidative Phosphorylation, Pathways of Carbohydrate Metabolism.
This note explains the advanced treatment of the biochemical
mechanisms that underlie biological processes. Topics include are macromolecular
machines for energy and force transduction, regulation of biosynthetic and
degradative pathways, Cholesterol biosynthesis and the structure and function of
