Principles of Bioenergetics summarizes one of the quickly growing branches of modern biochemistry. Bioenergetics concerns energy transductions occurring in living systems and this book pays special attention to molecular mechanisms of these processes. The main subject of the book is the "energy coupling membrane" which refers to inner membranes of intracellular organelles, for example, mitochondria and chloroplasts. Cellular cytoplasmic membranes where respiratory and photosynthetic energy transducers, as well as ion-transporting ATP-synthases (ATPases) are also part of this membrane. Significant attention is paid to the alternative function of mitochondria as generators of reactive oxygen species (ROS) that mediate programmed death of cells (apoptosis and necrosis) and organisms (phenoptosis). The latter process is considered as a key mechanism of aging which may be suppressed by mitochondria-targeted antioxidants.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"Outlining recent advances in our understanding of bioenergetics, this book discusses structures and molecular mechanisms involved in energy transduction, as well as alternative functions of mitochondria. ... The audience includes graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and researchers in biochemistry, biophysics, cellular and molecular biology, chemistry, physiology, and toxicology. ... This book eloquently presents the current concepts of bioenergetics while providing a historical perspective of the field. It is thorough in its presentation of the information and complete in its coverage." (Sophie La Salle, Doody's Book Reviews, January, 2014)
