This volume, as do the other Enzyme Kinetics and Mechanism volumes in the Methods in Enzymology series, provides treatment of dynamic and chemical approaches for investigating enzyme catalysis and regulation, as well as designing metabolic inhibitors. It will greatly interest those involved in enzyme chemistry, metabolic control, and drug design. It should also interest those developing commercial applications for enzymes whose properties have been re-engineered using recombinant DNA technology and site-directed mutagenesis.
General Description of the Series:
The critically acclaimed laboratory standard for more than forty years, Methods in Enzymology is one of the most highly respected publications in the field of biochemistry. Since 1955, each volume has been eagerly awaited, frequently consulted, and praised by researchers and reviewers alike. Now with more than 300 volumes (all of them still in print), the series contains much material still relevant today--truly an essential publication for researchers in all fields of life sciences.
- Mechanisms of enzyme catalysis and inhibition
- Enzyme structure and function
- Regulatory control of enzymes
