Overview

The third edition of the Handbook of Proteolytic Enzymes is a comprehensive reference work for the enzymes that cleave proteins and peptides, written by acknowledged experts in the field and containing over 850 chapters. Each chapter is organized into sections describing the name and history, activity and specificity, structural chemistry, preparation, biological aspects, and distinguishing features for a specific peptidase. There are also introductory chapters on peptidase classification and mechanisms and a comprehensive index.

For the first time, the Handbook is also available online via Elsevier's ScienceDirect platform as well as a three-volume book. The online version has enhanced options, including online multimedia, cross-referencing capabilities, integrated online delivery and closer integration with the online MEROPS database of peptidases and their inhibitors. This reference work is a must-have for biochemists, biotechnologists, molecular biologists and students in these disciplines, and will be of great interest to pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies.

• The only comprehensive book on proteolytic enzymes
• Includes 671 chapters, each written by experts in their field, on proteolytic enzymes from all groups of living organisms and the viruses, including those that are currently major targets of pharmaceutical research
• Accompanying CD-ROM provides fully searchable text, 2D structures of peptidases in color and links directly to PubMed and MEROPS databases
• Each chapter describes in detail the enzyme name, its history, activity and specificity, structural chemistry, preparation, biological aspects and distinguishing features
• Over 1000 peptidases included

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Mention in FOOD SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY ABSTRACTS, Volume 37, 2005

Praise for the Second Edition:
"The clear goal of these volumes is to provide complete coverage of proteases. All known enzymes of this class are described. As a reference, this is a very worthwhile contribution. The goals of this book are well met...The major strength of this book is the comprehensive coverage...An essential reference for scientific research...A very impressive offering…Any investigator with a protease question should start here."
- Doody’s (2005)

"This handbook would be very useful a reference for a library that serves graduate and post-graduate researchers in molecular biology and related fields."
- E-STREAMS (2005)

Doody's 4-star review-
"A very impressive offering. While many of the chapters are short, they provide essential information as well as appropriate references. Any investigator with a protease question should start here."
Eugene A. Davidson, PhD, Georgetown University School of Medicine in DOODYS

"The Handbook of Proteolytic Enzymes, Second Edition provides a structured and systematic, up-to-date account of the information about proteolytic enzymes...an indispensable reference for all researchers utilizing such enzymes in areas of organic chemistry, biochemistry, biotechnology and molecular biology."
John F. Kennedy and Menh M. He, Chembiotech Laboratories in CARBOHYDRATE POLYMERS, April 2005

"This handbook would be a very useful reference for a library that serves graduate and post-graduate researchers in molecular biology and related fields. However, the CD-ROM version may be significantly more useful than the print version, especially for workers adept with bioinformatics."
Rafael Garcia, Chemical
