Many details in the text and illustration program have been updated, with virtually no section left untouched. Other new items include a discussion of archaeal lipids, details on the GLUT membrane transport protein, a box on exosomes, new illustrations of respiratory cilia and bacterial peptidoglycan, new molecular graphics of mitochondrial respiratory complexes, an updated presentation of the ribonucleotide reductase mechanism, and more information on the microbiome, cancer, and obesity.
Descriptions of DNA replication and transcription have been extensively modified, with numerous new diagrams to present a more realistic picture of these processes.
The histone code and readers, writers, and erasers are explained. New details on RNA splicing and protein translocation round out the revised text.
Eight health-related topics that were previously confined to short boxes have been updated and expanded to Clinical Connection sections for more attention: 2.
Materials have been reorganized within sections to make it easier for students to navigate complex topics, and several new sections added to focus on key content areas: End-of-chapter problem sets have been refreshed, with a total of 1, problems.
Problems are grouped by section and offered in pairs, with the answers to odd-numbered problems provided in an appendix. Key Concepts at the beginning of each section prompt students to recognize the important takeaways or concepts in each section, providing the scaffolding for understanding by better defining these important points. Tools and Techniques Sections appear at the end of Chapters 2, 3, and 4, to showcase practical aspects of biochemistry and provide an overview of experimental techniques that students will encounter in their reading or laboratory experience.
Metabolism Overview Figures introduced in Chapter 12 and revisited in subsequent chapters help students place individual metabolic pathways into a broader context. Undetected location. NO YES. Pratt's Essential Biochemistry Global Edition. Selected type: Paperback. Added to Your Shopping Cart. This is a dummy description. It presents a broad, but not overwhelming coverage of basic biochemical concepts that focus on the chemistry behind biology, structure-function relationships, transformation of energy and how genetic information is stored and made accessible.
It relates these concepts to practical knowledge as well as providing many problem-solving opportunities to enhance skills. Student View Student Companion Site. About the Author Charlott Pratt received her Ph. New To This Edition Many details in the text and illustration program have been updated, with virtually no section left untouched.

Essential Biochemistry, 4th Edition
Essential Biochemistry, 4 th Edition takes a modern approach involving broad but not overwhelming coverage of biochemical facts, focusing on the chemistry behind biology and providing students with practical knowledge and problem-solving opportunities. Click Here. Guided Tours help students truly understand concepts that may be difficult to grasp. The Guided Tours, created by Charlotte Pratt, are multi-part animations that present big picture concepts conveyed through animations, tutorials, and practice. Assignable brief Bioinformatics Exercises written by Rakesh Mogul, Cal Poly Pomona, introduce students to the rich variety of biochemical information and software tools available on the internet, showing them how to mine this information and illuminating the connection between theory and applied concepts.
