Enzymes, Second Edition provides information pertinent to the developments in the field of enzymology. This book presents the properties of enzymes as chemical catalysts or simply as chemical substances.
Organized into 13 chapters, this edition begins with an overview of the range of action or specificity of enzymes. This text then discusses the special techniques employed in the isolation of enzymes and explores the considerable progress in the study of the properties and functions of enzymes. Other chapters consider the mechanism of enzyme catalysis by more direct methods, including the use of isotopes. This book discusses as well the mechanism of the biosynthesis of enzymes and the means by which their chemical structure is determined by the genetic material of the chromosomes. The final chapter deals with the essential aspects of the enzymatic system linking energy-producing processes with energy-utilizing processes.
This book is a valuable resource for biochemists, physical chemists, and research workers.
