Freeman and Company, New York, , pp. In the beginning there was White, Handler, and Smith. Biochemistry textbooks are almost never referred to by their titles, only by their authors.
This point will be revisited shortly. Then Mahler and Cordes provided competition. In we are of course dealing in the distant mists of biochemical time , Lehninger appeared on the scene.
Around the same time, as the inherent importance of biochemistry became obvious, textbooks started multiplying and getting larger. Biochemistry was in an impressive growth phase and authors felt the necessity to include the rapidly accumulating new information in their tomes without eliminating any of the old material.
This growth spurt of biochemistry and the accompanying texts soon resulted in a split of textbook style. Biochemistry was seen as crucial for most life science majors and even engineers needed to be enlightened. However, not all would need the rigorous approach presented by the early generations of texts.
New books appeared where the title was now an issue. In , Albert Lehninger decided that his original efforts had become too dense through two previous editions and opted for a third approach.
This 4th edition of that newer Lehninger is the result of the evolution of this approach. Sadly, Albert Lehninger has not been around for recent editions but the book is wisely titled Lehninger Principles of Biochemistry. It still strives and, for the most part, succeeds in being a readable body of work.
On the other hand, it is something of an unfair criticism to say a text is unreadable. Very few will sit and read such a book like a novel. Authors David Nelson and Michael Cox have built upon their previous edition to generate a smoothly flowing work. Current users can rest assured that nothing drastic has been changed in style from the 3rd edition.
However, there are important additions reflecting our still rapidly changing area of interest. Significant results from the Human Genome Project and other sequencing efforts are included.
For example, ABC transporters in all organisms are now discussed. Genomics and proteomics are covered in a separate chapter, and new applications of methods such as atomic force microscopy are described. None of these new inclusions are forced in but seem to be blended nicely with existing material.
Also blended in are new insights gained from structural determinations of complexes like bacterial RNA polymerase and large and small ribosomal subunits. The importance of structure in the understanding of biochemical principles was recognized early by Lehninger and is continued by the authors as shown by their inclusion of the Protein Data Bank identification code for each structure shown in the text.
The authors have also greatly expanded their coverage of detailed reaction mechanisms. The cell biology information in the old chapter two has been placed in the context of other chapters and reduced in scope. Likewise, much of the chemistry found in the old chapter three has been placed in other locations.
One presumes the authors have decided to recognize the fact that other courses in fundamentals of chemistry and organic chemistry should be prerequisites for a course using their text.
