Summary

The World of the Cellcontinues the tradition of previous editions widely praised for covering some of the most difficult concepts - bioenergetics, metabolism, enzyme kinetics, thermodynamics, membrane transport, cell signaling, regulatory mechanisms, transcription and translation, signal transduction, and DNA replication and recombination - at the right level.A Preview of the Cell, The Chemistry of the Cell, The Macromolecules of the Cell, Cells and Organelles, Bioenergetics: The Flow of Energy in the Cell, Enzymes: The Catalysts of the Cell, Membranes: Their Structure, Function, and Chemistry, Transport Across Membranes: Overcoming the Permeability Barrier, Chemotrophic Energy Metabolism: Glycolysis and Fermentation, Chemotrophic Energy Metabolism: Aerobic Respiration, Phototrophic Energy Metabolism: Photosynthesis, Intracellular Compartments: The Endoplasmic Reticulum, Golgi Complex, Endosomes, Lysosomes, and Peroxisomes, Signal Transduction Mechanisms: I. Electrical Signals in Nerve Cells, Signal Transduction Mechanisms: II. Messengers and Receptors, Cytoskeletal Systems, Cellular Movement: Motility and Contractility, Beyond the Cell: Extracellular Structures, Cell Adhesion, and Cell Junctions, The Structural Basis of Cellular Information: DNA, Chromosomes, and the Nucleus, The Cell Cycle: DNA Replication, Mitosis, and Cancer, Sexual Reproduction: Meiosis and Genetic Recombination, Gene Expression: I. The Genetic Code and Transcription, Gene Expression: II. Protein Synthesis and Sorting, The Regulation of Gene Expression, CancerFor all readers interested in bioenergetics, metabolism, enzyme kinetics, thermodynamics, membrane transport, cell signaling, regulatory mechanisms, transcription and translation, signal transduction, and DNA replication and recombination.
