1999-10-28 Hardcover Good Good overall. Binding solid, spotless pages, would be very good but for 2 cover edge blemishes. One is a tiny few cm nick on the front cover edge and ... the other is on the side edge got a small nick/rip. Nice condition really. Ask any questions please. Read more Show Less

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"For the enzymologist wishing to understand an enzyme mechanism in depth, this book bundles useful information both theoretical and practical and goes deeper into the theory than most other books do."
--SCIENTIA HORTICULTURE
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Eugene A Davidson, PhD (Georgetown University School of Medicine)
Description: This book is an ambitious undertaking, and the authors are not entirely successful. The volume can be viewed as a dictionary of enzymes, kinetic models and terms, basic thermodynamic laws, and simple biological processes.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a reference on biochemical kinetics.
Audience: The intended audience is students and fellows of biochemistry.
Features: The arrangement is alphabetical and a random browser will find most enzymes listed. Likewise, Michaelis-Menten and Cleland approaches to kinetic analysis of enzymatic reactions are treated in detail; there is also a basic introduction to chemical kinetics. Many non-kinetic terms are included thus broadening coverage. This book may be of value as a reference volume for explanations of relatively uncommon terms or to clarify differences between various kinetic models such as those utilized by Cleland (uni-uni-bi-bi ping-pong, for example). Regrettably, there are serious errors of fact which compromise its utility and make it unwise to use as a reference tool for students. This seems especially serious in the carbohydrate area. Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase catalyzes an oxidation, not a reduction. The use of the term D- or L- when dealing with carbohydrates refers to the configuration at the asymmetric center most removed from the carbonyl group as compared to D-, or Lglyceraldehyde, and not to the optical rotation sign (a concept abandoned over 75 years ago). Finally, many of the references provided (a positive value) seem outdated.
Assessment: Libraries may wish to have this as a reference but users should approach with caution.

Defines and thoroughly explains some 1,500 kinetic and mechanistic terms related to the study of enzymic and metabolic processes. Gives practical advice on experimental design of kinetic experiments, presents step-by-step methods for deriving rate equations, and offers summaries of mechanistic studies on key enzymes and protein systems. Gives information on some 1,000 enzymes, covering EC numbers and reactions catalyzed, and gives references to reviews and assay methods. Entries are referenced to kinetic methods appearing in the series (volumes 1-275). The authors are affiliated with the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Florida College of Medicine. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
