9780470682043: Proteins

This book is a comprehensive introduction to the study of proteinsand their importance to modern biochemistry. Each chapter addressesthe structure and function of proteins with a definitive themedesigned to enhance student understanding. Opening with a briefhistorical overview of the subject the book moves on to discuss the building blocks of proteins and their respectivechemical and physical properties. Later chapters exploreexperimental and computational methods of comparing proteins,methods of protein purification and protein folding and stability.The latest developments in the field are included in thisthoroughly revised edition and key concepts are introduced in auser–friendly way to ensure that students are able to grasp theessentials before moving on to more advanced study and analysis ofproteins.

 

Maintaining the successful approach and structure of the firstedition, the second will represent a major update and include thefollowing specific changes:

·         Enhancedcoverage of proteomics and genomics

·         Expansionof material on physical methods used to determine proteinstructure.

·         Morein–depth treatment of membrane proteins

From the Back Cover:

Protein Structure and Function is a comprehensive introduction to the study of proteins and their importance to modern biochemistry. Each chapter addresses the structure and function of proteins with a definitive theme designed to enhance student understanding. Opening with a brief historical overview of the subject the book moves on to discuss the ‘building blocks’ of proteins and their respective chemical and physical properties. Later chapters explore experimental and computational methods of comparing proteins, methods of protein purification and protein folding and stability.

The latest developments in the field are included and key concepts introduced in a user–friendly way to ensure that students are able to grasp the essentials before moving on to more advanced study and analysis of proteins.

An invaluable resource for students of Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Medicine and Chemistry providing a modern approach to the subject of Proteins.

  • An accessible introduction to the principles of protein structure and function.
  • Beautifully illustrated throughout in full colour.
  • Includes end of chapter problems, references to further reading and a full glossary of terms.
  • Associated website including web–based tutorials, problems and additional content.
