Description of Bacterial Metabolism 2nd Edition (PDF)

Bacterial Metabolism 2nd Edition by Gerhard Gottschalk is a great book for study of bacterial metabolism available for PDF download. Progress in certain areas of bacterial metabolism has been rapid since the first edition of this book was published. Consequently, large parts of it had to be rewritten or extensively revised for a second edition. Some new material has also been included, sections on chemotaxis, bioluminescence, and catabolic plasmids.

The use of NAD, NADP, NADH2, and NADPH2 as abbreviations throughout the first edition of the book has been criticized by some reviewers. The author has taken this to heart; the abbreviations for these coenzymes have been changed to NAD+, NADH + H+, etc.

Many thanks are due to J. R. Andreesen, B. Bowien, B. Friedrich (Gottingen), L. Ettlinger (Zurich), H.-J. Knackmuss (Wuppertal), H. Mayer (Freiburg), K.H. Schleifer (Munchen), R. Thauer (Marburg), A. Trebst (Bochum), and W. Zumft (Karlsruhe) who read certain sections of the book and made valuable suggestions; to Claudia Bechtel, Helga Grupe, and Ute Meyer for typing the manuscript and preparing the figures; to Garabed Antranikian, Michael Blaut, Armin Quentmeier, and Bernhard Moller for proofreading; and finally to the publishers for their patience and the pleasant cooperation. It is the hope of the author that the second edition of Bacterial Metabolism will be as well received as the first edition.
