In one convenient resource, Creighton's landmark textbook offers an expert introduction to all aspects of proteins—biosynthesis, evolution, structures, dynamics, ligand binding, and catalysis. It works equally well as a reference or as a classroom text.

Chemical properties of polypeptides/biosynthesis of proteins/enzyme catalysis/proteins in solution & membrane

Editorial Reviews

Organized on a combined basis of chronology and of structural and functional hierarchy, This comprehensive text describes all aspects of proteins--biosynthesis, evolution, dynamics, ligand binding, catalysis, and energy transduction--not just their structures. This edition (first was 1984) is thoroughly updated--especially in the area of protein biosynthesis--and features end-of-chapter exercises and problems, many of which require the student to consult the cited literature in order to obtain the answer.
