Contents:
Introduction -- Biochemistry before 1900 -- Early metabolic studies: Energy needs and the composition of the diet -- Carbohydrate utilization: Glycolysis and related activities -- Aspects of carbohydrate oxidation, electron transfer, and oxidative phosphorylation -- Amino acid catabolism in animals -- The utilization of fatty acids -- The Impact of Isotopes: 1925-1965 -- Biochemistry and the cell -- Concepts of protein structure and function -- Chronological summary of main events up to ca. 1960 -- Principal metabolic pathways -- Author Index -- Subject Index.
Summary: The account in this inaugural volume of the series covers the period 1900 to 1960, but also outlines the principal developments in earlier centuries from which biochemistry emerged. Findings are considered in the light of present knowledge, rather than in a rigid historical framework.
