The role of metals in biology is gaining increasing awareness throughout the world. The field is undergoing rapid development and has fundamental scientific significance and many important consequences for human health and medical treatments. Metals in Biology and Medicine provides students of chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology and pharmaceutical sciences who are learning bioinorganic chemistry as part of their degree with a comprehensive understanding of the subject. A collaborative effort by a team of authors who are both experts in the field and experienced lecturers from the USA and Europe, the book emphasises and presents the topics in a conceptual order. This text introduces the basic concepts of coordination chemistry, followed by the metabolic pathways of essential metal ions in healthy biological systems. Various roles of essential metals in biology are discussed as well as the potential toxic effects of metals. Clinical aspects are highlighted throughout. Final chapters explore some of the latest case studies of metals in medicine and drug design. Central to the theme of the book is a molecular approach to understanding. This book will be a valuable learning tool for advanced students studying courses on metals in biology as part of their degree.
