I am happy to present the Text Book of Biochemistry for B.E. Biomedical Engineering students. Biochemistry is the language of living organisms. It is the most rapidly developing field in medicine. Biochemistry is gaining importance in the curricula of medicine, life science, nutrition and biomedical Engineering in universities and colleges. The book is designed to fulfill the needs of Undergraduate students of Biomedical Engineering, but it can be used by other students who require a good knowledge of biochemistry for their future carriers.

    Chapter 1 - Introduction to Biochemistry Price 0.11  |  0.11 Rewards Points

    Biochemistry is otherwise known as biological chemistry. It is the
    study of chemical reactions within the living organisms. It explains
    the information about the flow of biochemical signaling and the flow of chemical energy through metabolism. Biochemical processes give rise to the complexity of life. It deals with the structures, functions and interactions of biological molecules, such as vitamins, minerals, proteins, nucleic acids, carbohydrates and lipids. It provides information about the structure of cells and performance of the cells associated with life. It gives rise to the biological processes which help to study and understand the whole organisms.

    Lipids are organic substances, insoluble in water, soluble in organic
    solvents (alcohol, ether etc). They are related to fatty acids.

    Chapter 4 - Nucleic Acid and Protein Price 0.11  |  0.11 Rewards Points

    Nucleic acids are large biopolymers of nucleotides. They are essential for all forms of life which include DNA (Deoxyribo Nucleic Acid) and RNA (Ribo Nucleic Acid). They are made by monomers known as nucleotides. Each nucleotide has three components: Ribose or deoxy ribose, a phosphate group, and a nitrogenous base. If the sugar is deoxyribose, the polymer is DNA. If the sugar is ribose, the polymer is RNA. There are two types of nitrogenous bases in nucleic acids–1. Purines (guanine and adenine), 2. Pyrimidines (thymine, uracil and cytosine).

    Chapter 5 - Enzymes Price 0.11  |  0.11 Rewards Points

    Enzymes are biocatalysts that increase the rate of reaction and are not consumed during the reaction. They are soluble, colloidal organic molecules formed by living cells. They are specific in action, protein in nature, inactive at 100°C. They function within a temperature and pH range.
