"Medicinal Natural Products, Second Edition" is a comprehensive guide providing information on all classes of natural products in medicine. It builds upon fundamental chemical principles and demonstrates a unique integration of plant, microbial and animal natural products in one volume. The text guides the reader through a wealth of diverse natural metabolites used in medicine with sources, production methods, use as drugs and modes of action all extensively covered. Taking a chemistry based approach it combines traditional pharmacognosy with medicinal chemistry. The structure is user-friendly and includes the acclaimed grey boxes on groups of products and detailed mechanistic explanations. This book features: adopts a novel biosynthetic theme rather than a traditional descriptive approach; includes extensive further reading at the end of the chapter; thoroughly revised and updated to incorporate comprehensive coverage of plant, microbial and animal products; and includes the latest developments in the field. This is a new material on genetic manipulation of biosynthetic pathways and non-mevalonate pathway to terpanoids, and provides a user-friendly format including extensive use of chemical schemes with annotated mechanistic explanations.
