EDITORIAL REVIEWS

Book Description

This new edition of Bioenergetics presents a clear and up-to-date explanation of the chemiosmotic theory and covers mitochondria, bacteria, and chloroplasts. It takes account of the many newly determined structures, such as ATP synthase and the two photosystems of photosynthesis, that provide molecular insight into chemiosmotic energy transduction. This edition includes additional color figures of protein structures and many newly drawn illustrations designed to enable the reader to grasp the fundamental insights that are derived from knowing the structure. Every chapter has been extensively revised and updated and a new chapter on the study of the bioenergetics of mitochondria in the intact cell is included to satisfy the enormous interest in this topic. Written for students and researchers alike, this book is the most current text on the chemiosmotic theory and membrane bioenergetics available.

Key Features
* Chapter on the study of bioenergetics of mitochondria in the intact cell
* Appendix listing protein structure resources
* Additional colour plates of protein structures
* Many newly drawn illustrations

From the Back Cover

Extensively revised, the new edition of this highly successful book takes into account the many newly determined protein structures, such as ATP synthase and the two photosystems of photosynthesis, that provide molecular insight into chemiosmotic energy transduction, as well as reviewing the explosive advances in 'mitochondria physiology'-the role of the mitochondria in the life and death of the cell.

Covering mitochondria, bacteria and chloroplasts, Bioenergetics 3 provides a clear and comprehensive account of chemiosmotic theory. The figures have been carefully designed to be memorable and convey the key functional and mechanistic information.

Written for students and researchers alike, this book has become the standard textbook on chemiosmotic theory and membrane bioenergetics. Bioenergetics 3 will be essential reading for undergraduates, graduate and postgraduate students working in biochemistry, molecular biology and the biological sciences, and established researchers who require an overview of the latest advances in this dynamic field.
