Shriver Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Office: 289 Neckers Bldg. email: [email protected] Telephone: 453-6479 LEARNING RESOURCES: ESTIMATED WORK TIME: 40 hours. A. This study guide is provided in two forms: printed and electronic. I str ongly encour age y ou to obtain the electr onic for m as a pdf fi le and install it on y our computer so that it can be r ead using Adobe A cr obat R eader . See Appendix II for an introduction on how to view a pdf file. The pdf file can be downloaded from the biochemis- try server ( ) and Acrobat Reader can be downloaded without charge from Adobe’s web page ( ). They should also be installed on the student computers. There are a number of advantages to using the electronic version including color, a hypertext index, and hyper- text links within the text. Hypertext links in the text body are in blue underlined characters ( such as this) . Clicking on these will lead to a jump to the linked material for further details. The destination mate- rial is highighted with red underlined characters ( such as this) to make it easy for y ou to fi nd on the page . The red underlined text is not a hyperlink - only a destination. This and other study guides are provided to help you focus on the topics that are important in the biochemistry curriculum. These are designed to guide your studying and provide information that may not be readily available in other resources. They are not designed to replace textbooks, and are not intended to be complete. They are guides for starting your reading. The pdf electr onic v ersions should be especially useful for quick r evie ws at a later date. The hyper text N omenclatur e and V ocabular y sections should permit rapid scanning of the key points. B.Textbooks: 1.Devlin, Textbook of Biochemistry with Clinical Correla- tions, Thomas. Core text for Medical Biochemistry. 2.Champ & Harvey, Lippincotts Illustrated Reviews of Bio- chemistry, current ed., Lippincotts. Efficient presentation of basic principles. 3.Murray et al., Harper's Biochemistry, (23rd ed.) ('93), Pren- tice-Hall, Inc. An excellent review text for examinations.
SIU School of Medicine BIOCHEMISTRY pH and Structural Biology Faculty: J.W. Shriver Problem Unit 1 - Page 3 Most textbooks of biochemistry contain sections on pH and dissocia- tion and protein structure; some are more extensive than others. Any biochemistry textbook that covers the subject in sufficient detail so you can answer the questions in the Problem Sets and Practice Exam should be sufficient.
