Overview

Flavins and flavoproteins are a widely investigated and highly versatile group of compounds. Participation of these compounds in photochemistry and photobiology processes are of particular importance in the fields of biology, chemistry and medicine. Written by leading experts in the field each section of the book includes a historical overview of the subject, state of the art developments and future perspectives. Flavins: Photochemistry and Photobiology begins with the properties and applications of flavins, including their photochemistry in aqueous and organic solutions. Subsequent sections discuss riboflavin as a visible light sensitizer in the photo degradation of drugs, antiviral and antibacterial effects, the role of flavins in light induced toxicity and blue light initiated DNA repair by photolyase. Finally there are sections on the flavin based photoreceptors in plants, bacteria and eukaryotic photosynthetic flagelettes. This book brings together leading experts with a unique interdisciplinary emphasis, to provide an authoritative resource on flavins and their role in photochemistry and photobiology.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
This book is an extremely useful resource that summarizes current knowledge of the photochemistry and photobiology of flavins....be an essential part of the collection of any comprehensive chemistry or biology library and an essential and updated reference for scientists interested in this topic. Timely coverage of the recent literature, as well as the several unanswered questions that are presented .....the volume, should inspire many researchers to further explore the exciting field of flavin photochemistry and photobiology.
