Book description

Recent determination of genome sequences for a wide range of bacteria has made in-depth knowledge of prokaryotic metabolic function essential in order to give biochemical, physiological, and ecological meaning to the genomic information. Clearly describing the important metabolic processes that occur in prokaryotes under different conditions and in different environments, this advanced text provides an overview of the key cellular processes that determine bacterial roles in the environment, biotechnology, and human health. Prokaryotic structure is described as well as the means by which nutrients are transported into cells across membranes. Glucose metabolism through glycolysis and the TCA cycle are discussed, as well as other trophic variations found in prokaryotes, including the use of organic compounds, anaerobic fermentation, anaerobic respiratory processes, and photosynthesis. The regulation of metabolism through control of gene expression and control of the activity of enzymes is also covered, as well as survival mechanisms used under starvation conditions.

Reviews

'Being considered an expert in metabolism can be conferred by being lucky enough to have a copy of Bacterial Metabolism by H. W. Doelle or Gerhard Gottschalk. My copies of these books were published in 1975 and 1986 so the field is no longer crowded. This new book by Byung Hong Kim and Geoff Gadd is therefore timely; it takes our favourite metabolic pathways and presents them clearly and concisely.'
