Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Gene A. Homandberg, PhD (Rush Medical College of Rush University)
Description: This book, one in a series of technique books on protein science, is organized according to concepts and areas into main sections. These chapters include methods used for studies of protein-protein interaction, protein-ligand interactions, behavior of proteins at surfaces, in vivo protein modifications, manipulation of sulfur in proteins, methods used in primary structure and tertiary structure determination, folding and stability of proteins, and methods and uses for synthetic peptides. The subject areas used to present the methods are quite illustrative of the usefulness of these methods.
Purpose: This book is meant to present the most recent developments in methods and concepts with sections arranged by concepts rather than specific application. This was done to facilitate use by a broad audience.
Audience: This book is meant to serve as a reference source for protein scientists as well as analytical chemists interested in the newer methods and their applications. However, it should be interesting and valuable to biochemists in general because of the many illustrations of the value of these methods to specific problems.
Features: The is a very attractive book and includes contributions from many experts who are applying newer methods to diverse and very interesting research problems.
Assessment: This book is highly recommended for the library of anyone with interests in protein science, although researchers with more general interests and backgrounds will find this book useful and very interesting as well.
