BeschreibungThe Biochemistry of Plants: A Comprehensive Treatise, Volume 5: Amino Acids and Derivatives provides information pertinent to the fundamental aspects of plant biochemistry relating to the metabolism of amino acids with emphasis on amino acids present in proteins. This book discusses the metabolism of sulfur and nitrogen from the inorganic sources available to plants through their incorporation into organic compounds.
Organized into 17 chapters, this volume begins with an overview of some aspects of the biochemistry of symbiotic nitrogen fixation. This text then examines the ultrastructure and metabolism of the developing nodule with particular emphasis on interactions between the host legumes and the bacterial symbiont. Other chapters consider the characteristics of the enzymes involved in nitrate and nitrite reduction. The final chapter deals with the essential roles of amino acids and other soluble nitrogenous compounds in plant metabolism.
This book is a valuable resource for plant biochemists, neurobiochemists, molecular biologists, senior graduate students, and research workers.
