The central dogma of molecular biology where genetic material is transcribed into RNA and then translated into protein , despite being oversimplified, still provides a good starting point for understanding the field. The picture has been revised in light of emerging novel roles for RNA. In the early s, the study of gene structure and function, molecular genetics , has been among the most prominent sub-fields of molecular biology. Increasingly many other areas of biology focus on molecules, either directly studying interactions in their own right such as in cell biology and developmental biology , or indirectly, where molecular techniques are used to infer historical attributes of populations or species , as in fields in evolutionary biology such as population genetics and phylogenetics.
There is also a long tradition of studying biomolecules "from the ground up" in biophysics. For more extensive list on nucleic acid methods, see nucleic acid methods.
Main article: Molecular cloning Transduction image One of the most basic techniques of molecular biology to study protein function is molecular cloning.
A vector has 3 distinctive features: an origin of replication, a multiple cloning site MCS , and a selective marker usually antibiotic resistance. Located upstream of the multiple cloning site are the promoter regions and the transcription start site which regulate the expression of cloned gene. This plasmid can be inserted into either bacterial or animal cells. Introducing DNA into bacterial cells can be done by transformation via uptake of naked DNA, conjugation via cell-cell contact or by transduction via viral vector.
The experimental approaches by genetic manipulations, molecular biology techniques and classical enzyme kinetics are described. In the same way, it is explained how the results of in vivo flux modulations and computer simulations are consistent with the theoretical predictions.
A reflective reading of Chapter 7 is essential for a complete understanding of the naturally occurring metabolic regulation strategies.
Table of contents
Many ideas on feed-back inhibition, branched pathways, substrate cycles, enzyme cycles by covalent modification, etc are revised under the metabolic control analysis theory. Finally, the last chapter 8 evaluates this new view of physiological control. The limitations of the theory are considered in two groups: In the author's words: Nevertheless, it is a better starting point for acquiring a deeper understanding than the qualitative principles of conventional biochemistry'.
A synopsis summarizing in a few paragraphs the main topics covered short is located at the end of each chapter and these abstracts are masterfully written. I would recommend working on the respective chapters with a reflective reading of these summaries.
The selected bibliography is up to date, and available computer programs are also reported. Special attention might be given to the original problem collection presented at the end of each chapter.
Although the problems are not solved in the text, there are no special difficulties in solving them, if the theory is correctly applied, since they are very consistent. This book will be of greatest value for investigators, because it provides a new and complete paradigm not only for the biochemists actively reasearching in the metabolic regulation, but also for molecular biologists and geneticists, in order to integrate many dispersed and often rather unconnected experimental data.
The holistic and systematic view has long been claimed by biologists, but there was not available a coherent theory.
Fortunately, now it is possible. We thank Dr Fell for this masterpiece which I recommend for reading by young and senior biochemists.
O x f o r d University Press. Not only has the field itself been extremely fertile over the past, say 50 years, but also the inventiveness and imagination of biochemists and later, molecular biologists, has also been unsurpassed in devising names for the tools of their trade and the things and phenomena they have investigated.
Furthermore, in a large and active community of scientists, things and phenomena are often 'discovered' more than once and named independently one only has to look at the 27 or so names for interleukin-1, for example Keeping up with the names demands wide reading especially of the Lexicon section of Biochemical Education that ran for about ten years , and in the present Dictionary, to this is added the lifetime of experience in the trade of six old I'm sure they won't mind my saying this biochemists, assisted by some of their younger colleagues as 'subject editors'.
This latter perhaps illustrates the importance of getting our young students to talk in seminars and tutorials so that they actually have to use the words and tie them to concepts.

The present volume seems to be very extensive and workmanlike. Most of the entries about 17 of them occupy a few lines, rarely a quarter of a page, and many abbreviations our secret language? Chemical structures are given in a lot of cases, such that there are typically one or two per page. There are no other illustrations is this the difference between a dictionary and an encyclopaedia?: It has to be admitted that any dictionary is unlikely to have all the names of all the known enzymes and proteins, and all the known inborn errors of metabolism, etc.
But having said this, the present volume does pretty well. There are also some biographic entries for famous biochemists. There are some words a few that I would have thought not strictly biochemical eg tapeworm, impure , but the general rule with dictionaries is the more the merrier. Proteins of known structures have their protein database codes attached to the entries, and in addition there is a short Appendix by T K Attwood on 'exploring the language of bioinformatics'.
Perhaps in the age of information, the whole dictionary will be on C D - R O M and one will be able to 'click' on structures. No entries seem to carry a reference to the literature. This is probably too large a burden and would add 40 lines to a typical page containing about 40 entries: The spelling is American international throughout but with cross-references: This will be a useful addition to the groaning shelves of my library.
Along with Scott and Mercer's Encyclopedia see below , I would say that this is probably the most comprehensive and accurate of the dictionaries at present on offer.The study of " mutants " — organisms which lack one or more functional components with respect to the so-called " wild type " or normal phenotype.

Increasingly many other areas of biology focus on molecules, either directly studying interactions in their own right such as in cell biology and developmental biology , or indirectly, where molecular techniques are used to infer historical attributes of populations or species , as in fields in evolutionary biology such as population genetics and phylogenetics.
This is perhaps surprising, for example, in the chapter on polypeptide hormones, where there must be lots of syndromes. Some minor niggles include the general one that, while some sugar molecules are filled in with colour or tone, not all of them are.
Some recently reviewed volumes are listed in Refs Surely students will find this an attractive volume to own. Located upstream of the multiple cloning site are the promoter regions and the transcription start site which regulate the expression of cloned gene.
There is not a defined line between these disciplines.
