‘This textbook is clearly a milestone which should be to hand for every researcher and scholar working on or interested in the biochemistry and clinical aspects of iron. Those needing to go further in depth on some specific aspects will find not only an excellent starting point but also their pathway through the impressive list of references at the end of each chapter.’ Acta Cryst (International Union of Crystallography), November 2017 –This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.
From the Back Cover
Iron is of fundamental importance to the growth, development and well-being of almost all living organisms. Multiple biological systems have evolved for the uptake, utilisation, storage, and homeostasis of iron in microbes, plants and mammals. Both iron deficiency and iron overload are found extensively in humans; the intimate links between iron and oxidative stress are associated with a wide range of pathologies. Iron has a well established role in infections by a range of microorganisms and parasites. Other metals such as copper and zinc are also closely linked with iron metabolism. Iron overloads and deficiencies are important factors in the health of humans and are therefore a key target in drug development.
Iron Metabolism: From Molecular Mechanisms to Clinical Consequences, Third Edition presents a comprehensive overview of this important field. topics covered include:
Solution chemistry of iron in biological media
The importance of iron for biological systems
Microbial iron transport and metabolism
Iron uptake by plants and fungi
Cellular iron uptake and export in mammals
Intracellular iron storage and biomineralization
Intracellular iron metabolism and cellular iron homeostasis
Iron absorption in mammals,with particular reference to man, and regulation of systemic iron balance
