Opis

Written by an exercise scientist with more than 30 years of experience teaching biochemistry, the new and updated second edition of Biochemistry Primer for Exercise Science will appeal to even biochemistry-challenged exercise physiology students.
Like the popular first edition, this supplemental text is designed for upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in exercise physiology and sports nutrition who lack a basic understanding of the science behind exercise biochemistry. The book presents essential concepts of biochemistry—molecular biology, basic chemistry, metabolism and transcription regulation—in a simple and easy-to-understand format. It also is a valuable reference for people working in exercise physiology research.
Biochemistry Primer for Exercise Science, second edition, incorporates many exciting changes, including a more open and inviting design with 115 figures and many more examples relevant to sport and exercise. Other new features include the following:
• A thoroughly updated and comprehensive reference list • An easy-access list of abbreviations • New topics, including an expanded chapter on carbohydrate metabolism • Key point elements and glossary for quick identification of important terms • Challenging review questions
Unlike other biochemistry texts containing 1,000 or more pages, Biochemistry Primer for Exercise Science, second edition, is reasonably sized, giving exercise science students essential biochemistry basics without extraneous material.
Part I presents the basic elements involved in molecular biology. Students will get an overview of amino acid building blocks, protein structure and the function of enzymes, and the components of DNA and RNA.
In Part II, students will learn about the important elements involved in human metabolic reactions for carbohydrates, fats, and amino acids with continued emphasis on physical activity.
Part III provides essential information on gene transcription and protein synthesis and breakdown. Students will learn about different kinds of RNA and their function in human biochemistry from an exercise perspective.
Students and researchers alike will find that this easy-to-understand and relevant text opens new doors to understanding the biochemistry of exercise and the exploration of exciting new developments in this ever-evolving field.
This text is designed for upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in exercise physiology and sports nutrition who lack a basic understanding of the science behind exercise biochemistry. Presents essential concepts of biochemistry in a simple and easy to understand format.
