Biochemistry by SC Rastogi focuses on the basic concepts and fundamentals of the subject which would help the students in their development of understanding of Chemistry in the Living System. The third edition has been carefully designed to encompass the subject from basics like `The Living Cells? to the latest developments such as PCR and RDT. With more organised Table of contents and Addition of new pedagogical features such as `FOCUS' gist of the chapter, `RAPID FIRE QUESTIONS' and `SUMMARY' the revision will definitely prove to be a complete student friendly compendium. Key Features New chapters on Organization of prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells Determination of 3D structures of proteins, using X-ray crystallography and NMR spectroscopy Mechanism of enzyme catalysis Structures and functions of biomembranes Metabolism of triglycerols, phospholipids and sphingolipids Metabolism of cholesterol and lipid transport DNA damage and repair mechanisms RNA synthesis and processing Control of gene transcription Polymerase chain reaction New topical coverage on synthesis of eukaryotic DNA, Telomere replication, biosynthesis of triglycerols, oxidation of alpha and omega fatty acids, excretion of uric acid in man, catabolism of pyrimidines, and ribozymes and abzymes Complete coverage of all important topics such as Biomolecules, Bioenergetics, Enzymes, Metabolism of Carbohydrates, Proteins and Lipids, pH and Buffers Rich pedagogy 310 Chapter-end review problems 383 Rapid fire questions 600 Multiple-choice questions on Online Learning Center TABLE OF CONTENTS 1.
