Overview

Provides a comprehensive review of catalysis by enzymes at extreme temperatures. Covers what is known about organisms that can grow near 100°C and the specific properties of the limited number of enzymes and proteins that have been purified from them. Also discusses techniques and methods for investigating how proteins and nucleic acids are stabilized at extreme temperatures and explores the potential application of these enzymes. Includes contributions from leading research scientists in biochemistry, chemical engineering, microbiology, biology, and molecular biology.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
For chemists in pharmaceuticals, medicine, agriculture, and food, reviews what little is known about catalysis by enzymes at near the boiling point of water, the specific properties of the few isolated enzymes and proteins that can live and function at that extreme, and the potential applications. The 13 papers are from a symposium at the April 1991 meeting of the American Chemical Society in Atlanta. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
