Die Neuauflage des Senkrechtstarters unter den Biochemielehrbüchern - jetzt noch besser! Vollständig überarbeitet, auf den aktuellen Stand gebracht, didaktisch noch einmal verbessert. Die 2. Auflage enthält unter anderem vier komplett neue Kapitel zu den Themen “Hormonelle Steuerung komplexer Systeme”, “Molekulare Physiologie des Gastrointestinaltrakts”, “Molekulare Basis von Krebsentstehung und -bekämpfung” und “Erforschung und Entwicklung neuer Arzneistoffe” sowie einen erheblich erweiterten Tafelteil. Das bewährte Lehrbuch richtet sich an Studierende der Medizin, Biologie und Chemie, die einen fundierten und leicht zugänglichen Überblick über das Gesamtgebiet der Biochemie suchen, ohne in der Fülle der modernen biochemisch-molekularbiologischen Erkenntnisse den Boden unter den Füßen zu verlieren. Dem Autor gelingt es, die Grundlagen, Leitmotive und Schlüsselkonzepte der Biochemie herauszuarbeiten und dem Leser somit das Rüstzeug für erfolgreiche Prüfungen wie auch für die spätere Vertiefung in die weiterführende Literatur zu liefern. Didaktisch durchdacht vermittelt das Buch in fünf Teilen I: Molekulare Architektur des Lebens II: Struktur und Funktion von Proteinen III: Speicherung und Ausprägung von Erbinformation IV: Signaltransduktion und zelluläre Funktion V: Energiewandlung und Biosynthese nicht nur das Grundwissen der Biochemie, sondern veranschaulicht auch das Gedankengebäude dieser dynamischen Disziplin. Schlüsselbegriffe und wichtige Biomoleküle sind im Text hervorgehoben. Eine Fülle von Querverweisen schafft Zusammenhänge zwischen den Abschnitten und Kapiteln. Ausformulierte Zwischenüberschriften können als Merksätze zur schnellen Rekapitulation dienen. Maus-Symbole verweisen auf Websites, die in einer umfangreichen Link-Sammlung im Internet zur Verfügung stehen und weiterführende Informationen zu einzelnen Themen liefern. Zahlreiche Exkurse werfen Schlaglichter auf interessante biochemische und pathobiochemische Phänomene - ob es sich um die molekulare Basis menschlicher Krankheiten, wichtige Untersuchungsmethoden, spezielle Molekülstrukturen oder zellbiologische Prozesse handelt. Zur schnellen Orientierung sind die wichtigsten Biomoleküle nach Gruppen geordnet auf 15 ganzseitigen Tafeln dargestellt sowie sämtliche im Buch aufgeführten Hormone mit ihren Rezeptoren und Signalwegen als kompakte Übersicht im Tafelteil präsentiert. Eine Besonderheit des Buches sind die mehr als tausend Grafiken, die eine unverwechselbare Handschrift - plakativ, klar, verständlich - tragen und in dichter Folge die im Text vorgestellten Phänomene und Prozesse veranschaulichen. Die vorgegebenen Ausbildungsinhalte für Mediziner in der Biochemie sind durch das Buch nahezu vollständig abgedeckt. Auch das - in der neuen Approbationsordnung betonte - Zusammenwachsen von Biochemie und Molekularbiologie spiegelt sich im Buch wider. Mit diesem klar gegliederten und verständlich geschriebenen Lehrbuch macht es einfach Spaß, Biochemie zu lernen!
