Overview of the chapterKey pathways; 4.1 Introduction; 4.2 Physiological aspects; 4.3 Signalling molecules; 4.4 Synthesis of hormones; 4.5 Hormone and neurotransmitter storage, release and transport; 4.6 Hormone and neurotransmitter inactivation; 4.7 Target tissue response to signals; 4.8 Diabetes mellitus (Greek: 'large volumes of sweet fluid'); Chapter summary; Case notes; 5 Biochemistry of the blood and the vascular system; Overview of the chapter; Key pathways; 5.1 Introduction; 5.2 The blood vascular system; 5.3 Circulating blood cells
Summary: This text provides a fresh, accessible introduction to human metabolism that shows how the physiological actions of selected organs can be explained by their particular biochemical processes. Focusing on metabolic integration, rather than pathways, this book opens with three introductory chapters that explore the principles of metabolism and its control before moving onto 'themed' chapters that investigate liver, communication systems (endocrine and neurological), blood and vascular system, muscle and adipose tissue and renal biochemistry.
