The original 2 volume set of the "Handbook of Metalloproteins", focused on a number of metals, including iron, nickel, manganese, cobalt, copper and vanadium. Now volume 3 extends the wealth of knowledge to focus on proteins found in the redox-inactive ions of zinc and calcium.
While there are more than two hundred known 3D structures of zinc enzymes, the handbook focuses on contributions for those enzymes most relevant in research today. Also covered extensively, is the role of Calcium ions as secondary messengers in controlling the many biological processes.
