The Molecular Nutrition of Ami Acids and Proteins provides an in-depth look at the involvement and role of ami acids and proteins in molecular nutrition. Editor Dominique Dardevet has assembled a collection of chapters written by leading researchers and top professors that provide the reader with a comprehensive understanding of ami acids and proteins. The book provides an introduction to the fundamentals of ami acids and proteins as well as the composition of food. It then delves into the molecular biology of the cell and genetic machinery and its function. The Molecular Nutrition of Ami Acids and Proteins also features reference guides for terms and bullet-point summaries, making it readily accessible to vices while still providing the most up-to-date and detailed information that experienced researchers need.
Dr. Dominique Dardevet is a senior member of the Institut National de la Recherche Agronomique (INRA) in France. He is attached to the Human Nutrition department in the Nutrition, Metabolism and Muscle Mass team (NuTriM). Dr. Dardavet has managed a number of pre-clinical and clinical studies on the effect of the quality of dietary proteins and amino acids on postprandial skeletal muscle anabolism. He collaborated with research groups in USA, Canada, Switzerland, Italy, Brazil and published about 80 peer-reviewed manuscripts on protein and amino acid metabolism. Dr. Dardavet obtained his PhD degree in Physiology, Endocrinology and Nutrition in 1993 at the Blaise Pascal University (France).
