  • Title:
    Amino acid metabolism
  • Author: David A. Bender
  • Description: Nitrogen metabolism -- Nitrogen balance and protein turnover : protein and amino acids in human nutrition -- The role of vitamin B6 in amino acid metabolism -- Glycine, serine, and the one-carbon pool -- Amino acids synthesised from glutamate : glutamine, proline, ornithine, citrulline, and arginine -- Amino acids synthesised from aspartate : lysine, methionine (and cysteine), threonine and isoleucine -- The branched-chain amino acids, leucine, isoleucine, and valine -- Histidine -- The aromatic amino acids, phenylalanine, tyrosine, and tryptophan.
    "Amino Acid Metabolism, 3rd Edition covers all aspects of the biochemistry and nutritional biochemistry of the amino acids. Starting with an overview of nitrogen fixation and the incorporation of inorganic nitrogen into amino acids, the book then details other major nitrogenous compounds in micro-organisms, plants and animals. Contents include a discussion of the catabolism of amino acids and other nitrogenous compounds in animals, and the microbiological reactions involved in release of nitrogen gas back into the atmosphere. Mammalian (mainly human) protein and amino acid requirements are considered in detail, and the methods that are used to determine them.
    Chapters consider individual amino acids, grouped according to their metabolic origin, and discussing their biosynthesis (in plants and micro-organisms for those that are dietary essentials for human beings), major metabolic roles (mainly in human metabolism) and catabolism (again mainly in human metabolism). There is also discussion of regulatory mechanisms for all these metabolic pathways, and of metabolic and genetic diseases affecting the (human) metabolism of amino acids."--pub. desc.
