Non-Enzymatic Protein Modifications in Health, Diseases and Ageing discusses each type of non-enzymatic protein, introducing non-enzymatic protein modifications, reviewing the state-of-the-art, and presenting updates and current trends. The book covers various aspects of the subject, including the formation and removal of modified proteins, their roles in disease, preventative methods, and possible roles in cellular signaling. This book not only provides well-established facts, but also discusses current hypotheses and controversies.
