They are examined from the following points of view: biochemistry, physiological functions and role in some diseases and in the development of tumours. For these reasons, the book is divided into three sections: 1. Dehydrogenases and cancer 2. Dehydrogenases and some diseases 3. Dehydrogenases and physiological role BT - Dehydrogenases SP - Ch. 7 UR - https://doi.org/10.5772/48278 DO - 10.5772/48278 SN - PB - IntechOpen CY - Rijeka Y2 - 2021-05-11 ER -
