edited by William C. Plaxton

Control of Primary Metabolism in Plants is devoted to generic aspects of metabloic control, with chapters on the key control points in pathways.

Control of Primary Metabolism in Plants considers the control of specific pathways, with detailed descriptions and discussions of the regulation of these pathways, particularly in terms of the enzymology.
