What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"The book edited by Keinan provides an excellent overview of the state of the art in the field. ... The book is particulary attractive because the description of experimental results is generally put into a broader functional and mechanistic context. This approach has delievered a book that is a pleasure to read, not only for those who are quickly seeking specific and detailed information about antibody catalysis, but also for readers with a more general interest in biological catalysis and enzymology."
—Dick, B. Janssen, University of Groningen, ChemBioChem, 5/2005
