Quick Look Metabolism integrates biochemical pathways with themes traditionally covered in physiology, cell structure, histology, and nutrition. Medical students at all levels will find this approach invaluable, especially when trying to grasp the big picture of human metabolism. By integrating multidisciplinary concepts into a concise format, emphasis has been placed on basic principles, functions, and regulation with minimal attention given to metabolic intermediates and tedious structural details. Consideration of particular pathways include descriptions of the function the pathway plays in the cell or the organism as a whole; descriptions of the key reactions in the pathway, including where the reactions occur in the cell; and discussions of the organ specificity of the pathway, how it is regulated, and how it is co-ordinated with other pathways so that homeostasis is maintained. To provide vertical integration, clinical examples are used frequently to emphasise the connection between disease and abnormalities in metabolism.
