Introduce your students to the latest developments in biotechnology and genomics with this new edition of Campbell and Farrell's best-selling text for the one-term course. Known for its logical organization, appropriate depth of coverage, and vibrant illustrations, BIOCHEMISTRY, 8th Edition, helps your students synthesize the flood of information that has inundated the field since the decoding of the human genome, while showing them how biochemistry principles connect to their everyday lives. The book incorporates up-to-date developments in stem cell research, cloning, and immunology and offers revised coverage of major topics, such as Molecular Biology. Balancing scientific detail with readability, the book is ideal for students studying biochemistry for the first time. For example, in-text questions and problem sets categorized by problem type help students master chemistry and prepare for exams, and "Biochemical Connections" demonstrate how biochemistry applies to other fields such as health and sports medicine. In addition, the book's revised state-of-the-art visual program improves learning outcomes and its innovative magazine articles, "Hot Topics in Biochemistry" now reflect the latest advances in the field. Count on BIOCHEMISTRY, 8th Edition, to lead the way in currency, clarity, and innovation for your one-semester biochemistry course




















Recall Equation 6.4: k1 k2 E ϩ S º ES 3 E ϩ P kϪ1 (6.4) As before, k1 is the rate constant for the formation of the enzyme–substrate complex, ES, from the enzyme and substrate; k–1 is the rate constant for the reverse reaction, dissociation of the ES complex to free enzyme and substrate; and k2 is the rate constant for the formation of product P and the subsequent release of product from the enzyme. Also recall from Equation 6.11 that k 21 1 k2 k1 Consider the case in which the reaction E + S

Reflect and Apply In which of the following processes does the entropy increase? In each case, explain why it does or does not increase. (a) A bottle of ammonia is opened. The odor of ammonia is soon apparent throughout the room. (b) Sodium chloride dissolves in water. (c) A protein is completely hydrolyzed to the component amino acids. Hint: For Questions 39 through 41,

your knowledge, you are asked to do a fact check on material from this chapter, and in the second part you are asked to recall and apply concepts from an earlier chapter. 1. See Figure 3.3. Nonpolar: alanine, leucine, and phenylalanine; basic: arginine and lysine. Serine is not in either category because it has a polar side chain. 2. The ratio is 10:1 because the pH is one unit higher than the pKa. 71 Biochemical Connections NEUROPHYSIOLOGY Amino Acids to Calm Down and Pep Up Two amino acids

the mammary glands. The presence of oxytocin causes the smooth muscle in the mammary glands to contract, forcing out the milk that is in them. As suckling continues, more hormone is released, producing still more milk. Vasopressin plays a role in the control of blood pressure by regulating contraction of smooth muscle. Like oxytocin, vasopressin is released by the action of the hypothalamus on the posterior pituitary and is transported by the blood to specific receptors. Vasopressin stimulates

organic part, protoporphyrin IX (Figure 4.16). (The notation Fe(II) is preferred to Fe2+ when metal ions occur in complexes.) The porphyrin part consists of four fivemembered rings based on the pyrrole structure; these four rings are linked by bridging methine (—CHA) groups to form a square planar structure. The Fe(II) ion has six coordination sites, and it forms six metal–ion complexation bonds. Four of the six sites are occupied by the nitrogen atoms of the four pyrrole-type rings of the
