The book not only covers the basic principles of plant biology, such as photosynthesis, primary and secondary metabolism, the function of phytohormones, plant genetics, and plant biotechnology, but it also addresses the various commercial applications of plant biochemistry. Plant biochemistry is not only an important field of basic science. Plant Metabolism by Charles Guy. Plant Metabolism is designed to focus on themes of current interest in plant metabolism and biochemistry. Topics covered includes: Metabolomics, Membranes and Organelles, Nitrogen Assimilation, Amino Acid Biosynthesis, Structural Lipids, Photosynthesis, Carbohydrate Metabolism, Glycolysis, Terpenoids, Alkaloids, Phenylpropanoids, Nitrogen Fixation. The Biochemistry of Plants, Volume Carbohydrates provides information pertinent to the fundamental aspects of plant biochemistry. This book deals with the function and structure of the plant cell wall by describing the physical and chemical properties of cell wall components.   The book provides a most comprehensive treatment of the subject, making it essential reading for all those working with or studying lipids. Upper level students of biochemistry, biology, clinical subjects, nutrition and food science will find the contents of this book invaluable as a study aid, as will postgraduates specializing in the topics.

Biochemistry and Molecular Biology of Plants, 2nd Edition has been hailed as a major contribution to the plant sciences literature and critical acclaim has been matched by global sales success. Maintaining the scope and focus of the first edition, the second will provide a major update, include much new material and reorganise some chapters to further improve the presentation. The Lipid Metabolism section contains posts/pages on the basic biochemistry of biological lipids, the biosynthesis and catabolism of fatty acids, the synthesis of triglycerides, the synthesis of cholesterol, the synthesis and metabolism of the lipoproteins, the synthesis of bile acids, the synthesis of complex bioactive lipids such as the various eicosanoids, the clinically relevant omega There is a very strong presence on campus of plant biochemists that study metabolism of structurally diverse lipids, including polar membrane lipids and neutral seed storage lipids, vitamins such as carotenoids (vitamin A) and tocopherols, (vitamin E), and lipid-derived signaling compounds such as . Lipid Metabolism focuses on the regulation and metabolism of lipids. This book is composed of 10 chapters that specifically deal with fatty acids, prostaglandins, glycerides, glycerophosphates, cholesterol, isoprenoids, and aromatic compounds. This text starts with an overview of fatty acid metabolism and its controlling factors.

  This fully revised translation of the world-renowned German edition covers the complete and modern knowledge of plant biochemistry. The book presents the topic in a concise and simplified manner so that students can digest the message and gain a basic knowledge of the entire field of plant biochemistry, from photosynthesis (the synthesis of natural plant products) to all kinds of genetic. Plant Lipid Biochemistry: The Biochemistry of Fatty Acids and Acyl Lipids with Particular Reference to Higher Plants and Algae Christopher Hitchcock, Christopher Hugh Stephen Hitchcock, C.. Hitchcock, Brian William Nichols. Lipids can usually be extracted easily from tissues by making use of their hydrophobic characteristics. However, such extractions yield a complex mixture of different lipid classes which have to be purified further for quantitative analysis. Moreover, the crude lipid extract will be contami­ nated. A collection of papers that comprehensively describe the major areas of research on lipid metabolism of plants. State-of-the-art knowledge about research on fatty acid and glycerolipid biosynthesis, isoprenoid metabolism, membrane structure and organization, lipid oxidation and degradation, lipids as intracellular and extracellular messengers, lipids and environment, oil seeds and gene.
