Biophysics and Synchrotron Radiation

Overview

This book, the second volume in the "Springer Series in Biophysics", contains contributions to the conference on Biophysics and Synchrotron Radiation held in July 1986 at Frascati. It is devoted to advances in the resolution of biological molecule structure obtainable through synchroton radiation studies. Moreover, new perspectives are opened up by the future high brilliance synchroton radiation sources. The use of synchroton radiation has firmly established x-ray spectroscopy of biological molecules.

Overview

This book, the second volume in the "Springer Series in Biophysics", contains contributions to the conference on Biophysics and Synchrotron Radiation held in July 1986 at Frascati. It is devoted to advances in the resolution of biological molecule structure obtainable through synchroton radiation studies. Moreover, new perspectives are opened up by the future high brilliance synchroton radiation sources. The use of synchroton radiation has firmly established x-ray spectroscopy of biological molecules. More detailed knowledge on the local structure of active sites of metalloproteins, as well as a number of studies on the interaction of metal ions with other important biological macromolecular systems are presented. This new method for protein structure analysis is a major improvement for the rapidly expanding field of protein engineering.
