This interesting new quantity offers an up to date survey of the biochemistry and body structure of plant secondary metabolism. the quantity commences with an summary of the biochemistry, body structure and serve as of secondary metabolism, by means of designated reports of the most important teams of secondary metabolites: alkaloids and betalains, cyanogenic glucosides, glucosinolates and nonprotein amino acids, phenyl propanoids and comparable phenolics, terpenoids, cardiac glycosides and saponins. a last bankruptcy discusses the evolution of secondary metabolism.
This conscientiously compiled new version brings jointly chapters from a number of the world's major specialists in plant secondary metabolism. thoroughly revised and taken correct brand new with a lot new details, this quantity is an important buy for complicated scholars, researchers and pros in biochemistry, body structure, molecular biology, genetics, plant sciences, agriculture, medication, pharmacology and pharmacy, operating within the educational and commercial sectors, together with these operating within the pesticide and pharmaceutical industries. Libraries in all universities and learn institutions the place those matters are studied and taught will desire copies of this wonderful quantity on their shelves.
- A significant other quantity Annual Plant reports quantity 39, features and Biotechnology of Plant Secondary Metabolites, moment Edition, Edited by means of M. Wink, is additionally available.
