Not only has the field itself been extremely fertile over the past, say 50 years, but also the inventiveness and imagination of biochemists and later, molecular biologists, has also been unsurpassed in devising names for the tools of their trade and the things and phenomena they have investigated.

Furthermore, in a large and active community of scientists, things and phenomena are often 'discovered' more than once and named independently one only has to look at the 27 or so names for interleukin-1, for example Keeping up with the names demands wide reading especially of the Lexicon section of Biochemical Education that ran for about ten years , and in the present Dictionary, to this is added the lifetime of experience in the trade of six old I'm sure they won't mind my saying this biochemists, assisted by some of their younger colleagues as 'subject editors'.

This latter perhaps illustrates the importance of getting our young students to talk in seminars and tutorials so that they actually have to use the words and tie them to concepts. The present volume seems to be very extensive and workmanlike.

Most of the entries about 17 of them occupy a few lines, rarely a quarter of a page, and many abbreviations our secret language? Chemical structures are given in a lot of cases, such that there are typically one or two per page. There are no other illustrations is this the difference between a dictionary and an encyclopaedia?: It has to be admitted that any dictionary is unlikely to have all the names of all the known enzymes and proteins, and all the known inborn errors of metabolism, etc.

But having said this, the present volume does pretty well. There are also some biographic entries for famous biochemists.

There are some words a few that I would have thought not strictly biochemical eg tapeworm, impure , but the general rule with dictionaries is the more the merrier. Proteins of known structures have their protein database codes attached to the entries, and in addition there is a short Appendix by T K Attwood on 'exploring the language of bioinformatics'.

Perhaps in the age of information, the whole dictionary will be on C D - R O M and one will be able to 'click' on structures.

No entries seem to carry a reference to the literature. This is probably too large a burden and would add 40 lines to a typical page containing about 40 entries: The spelling is American international throughout but with cross-references: This will be a useful addition to the groaning shelves of my library. Along with Scott and Mercer's Encyclopedia see below , I would say that this is probably the most comprehensive and accurate of the dictionaries at present on offer.

It is well organised, beautifully illustrated and designed, a pleasure to read and a delight to study. Artistic use of colour vibrant but not garish makes it instantly appealing. The authors are a husband-and-wife team, both of whom are professors of long standing in the Department of Biochemistry at the University of Adelaide, Australia.

The appearance of their book on the international market reflects the tremendous progress that Biochemistry and Molecular Biology have made in that country that has contributed significantly to the growth of both domains of our discipline in the past half-century or so.

Rather surprisingly there is no biographical information on the authors.

Nowhere is the book's birthplace made as clear as in the acknowledgements, where some two-thirds of the 44 persons included for reviewing part or all of the book or for providing advice are associated with universities or research institutions in Australia. There are 30 chapters distributed unequally among six parts. Part 1 consists of a chapter on 'Chemistry, Energy and Metabolism'; Part 2 contains two chapters on 'Structures of Proteins' and 'Cell Membranes'; Part 3 deals with 'Metabolism', in 15 chapters that are between 3 and 23 pages long; Part 4 contains nine chapters including three on 'Viruses', the 'Immune System', and 'Chemical Signalling' ; Part 5 consists of a chapter on the 'Red Blood Cell and Hemoglobin'; and the two chapters in Part 6 deal with 'Muscle' and 'Cytoskeleton'.

Each chapter is prefaced by a summary of section and subsection headings, and ends with an annotated list of further reading and some problems. Answers to problems and an index complete the book.

Increasingly many other areas of biology focus on molecules, either directly studying interactions in their own right such as in cell biology and developmental biology , or indirectly, where molecular techniques are used to infer historical attributes of populations or species , as in fields in evolutionary biology such as population genetics and phylogenetics.

There is also a long tradition of studying biomolecules "from the ground up" in biophysics. For more extensive list on nucleic acid methods, see nucleic acid methods.

Main article: Molecular cloning Transduction image One of the most basic techniques of molecular biology to study protein function is molecular cloning. A vector has 3 distinctive features: an origin of replication, a multiple cloning site MCS , and a selective marker usually antibiotic resistance. Located upstream of the multiple cloning site are the promoter regions and the transcription start site which regulate the expression of cloned gene.

This plasmid can be inserted into either bacterial or animal cells. Introducing DNA into bacterial cells can be done by transformation via uptake of naked DNA, conjugation via cell-cell contact or by transduction via viral vector.

Introducing DNA into eukaryotic cells, such as animal cells, by physical or chemical means is called transfection. Several different transfection techniques are available, such as calcium phosphate transfection, electroporation , microinjection and liposome transfection. The plasmid may be integrated into the genome , resulting in a stable transfection, or may remain independent of the genome, called transient transfection.

Thus, for example, the material on hexokinase on p in Enzymes does not seem to link with Tom Steitz's famous picture on p 47 on Proteins , and vice versa.

The study of the chemistry behind biological processes and the synthesis of biologically active molecules are examples of biochemistry. But having said this, the present volume does pretty well.

This new fourth edition is about the same size in number of pages as the third edition , but the chief feature that will be noted on initially opening the book is the addition of full colour.

Look through my other posts. I enjoy waymarking. I do love reading novels sharply.
