Book Description

Thomas M. Devlin's Textbook of Biochemistry with Clinical Correlations presents the biochemistry of mammalian cells, relates events at a cellular level to the subsequent physiological processes in the whole animal, and cites examples of human diseases derived from aberrant biochemical processes. The organization and content are tied together to provide students with the complete picture of biochemistry and how it relates to humans. Loaded with new material and chapters and brimming with detailed, full-color illustrations that clearly explain associated concepts, this sixth edition is an indispensable tool for students and professionals in the medical or health sciences.

Key Features of the Sixth Edition:

  • Over 250 Clinical Correlations highlighting the significance of the biochemistry to clinical conditions and diseases
  • MCAT-Style Questions with annontated answers in every chapter - in a format similar to that used by the National Board of Medical Examiners
  • More than 1,200 high-quality, full-color illustrations
  • A concise appendix reviewing important Organic Chemistry Concepts

New to the Sixth Edition:

  • Fully Updated with a significant revision of all chapters and major topics
  • Two new chapters: Fundamentals of Signal Transduction and Cell Cycle, Programmed Cell Death, and Cancer
  • A Glossary that explains important biochemical terms New sections on the Basal Lamina Protein Complex and Molecular Motors

TEXTBOOK OF BIOCHEMISTRY WITH CLINICAL CORRELATIONS
Fifth Edition
Thomas M. Devlin

This newly revised and updated fifth edition of Devlin’s Textbook of Biochemistry with Clinical Correlations presents the biochemistry of mammalian cells, relates events at the cellular level to physiological processes in the whole animal, and cites examples of human diseases derived from aberrant biochemical processes.

This edition significantly expands the clinical correlation that highlight the significance of biochemistry to specific clinical problems. Full-color illustrations provide clear explanations for the concepts discussed, and end-of-chapter questions and answers act as challenging study material. Reorganized into five practical sections, Textbook of Biochemistry with Clinical Correlations covers these topics and much more:

  • Structure of macromolecules–DNA, RNA, and protein structure
  • Information transmission–replication, transcription, protein synthesis, and control of gene expression
  • Functions of proteins–protein families, enzymes, membrane structure, and transport mechanisms
  • Metabolic pathways and their control–carbohydrate, lipid, amino acid, and nucleotide metabolism
  • Physiological processes–hormone and signal transduction, biochemistry of nervous tissue, muscle vision, coagulation and digestion, and principles of nutrition

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

a fine integrative text, May 9, 2006

We used this book teaching first year medical school biochemistry. The clinical correlations are well done, but the real strengh of the book lies in the sections on metabolic interrelationships. It is often confusing to the medical student to learn a pathway, and the the metabolic controls of the pathway, and then the added complexity that this system works differently in different tissues. This physiological complexity (which is the layer of integration where diagnosis really happens) is tackled head on in the first few chapters. This helps keep the student oriented to the system (the patient) and not get totally lost in the trees of enzyme names and co-factors.

I wish this book had been around when I went through medical school.

Fantastic Book!, February 13, 2005

This book is a must for anyone studying medical biochemistry, especially for the nutritionally-oriented physician. It is indeed very detailed, but the clinical correlations boxes really help tie the information together and make it very applicable in a clinical nutrition setting.

Excellent, thorough, definitive biochemistry textbook, November 27, 1999

This book has a wealth of information that will thoroughly educate you not only about biochemistry, but about practical clinical correlations springing directly from the biochemistry. Along with beautiful illustrations and a comprehensive index, the text is clearly written by experts from each field. Dr. Devlin has hit a major-league home run with this bright new work.
