This fresh Annual Plant studies quantity is the second one version of the hugely winning and well-received Annual Plant stories, quantity 2.
This interesting new quantity presents an up to date survey of the biochemistry and body structure of plant secondary metabolism. the quantity commences with an outline of the biochemistry, body structure and serve as of secondary metabolism, through unique reports of the key teams of secondary metabolites: alkaloids and betalains, cyanogenic glucosides, glucosinolates and nonprotein amino acids, phenyl propanoids and similar phenolics, terpenoids, cardiac glycosides and saponins. a last bankruptcy discusses the evolution of secondary metabolism.
This rigorously compiled new version brings jointly chapters from many of the world's major specialists in plant secondary metabolism. thoroughly revised and taken correct brand new with a lot new info, this quantity is a necessary buy for complicated scholars, researchers and execs in biochemistry, body structure, molecular biology, genetics, plant sciences, agriculture, medication, pharmacology and pharmacy, operating within the educational and business sectors, together with these operating within the pesticide and pharmaceutical industries. Libraries in all universities and examine institutions the place those matters are studied and taught will desire copies of this glorious quantity on their shelves.
- A better half quantity Annual Plant stories quantity 39, services and Biotechnology of Plant Secondary Metabolites, moment Edition, Edited through M. Wink, is additionally available.
