The Chemistry of Metalloproteins: Problems and Solutions in Bioinorganic Chemistry (PDF) ebook addresses the full gamut of questions in metalloprotein science.
Formatted as a question-and-answer guide; this ebook examines all major families of metal binding proteins; presenting our most current understanding of their physicochemical; structural; and functional properties. Moreover; it introduces emerging and new medical applications of metalloproteins. Students will discover both the underlying biology and chemistry of this important area of research in bioinorganic chemistry.
Chemistry of Metalloproteins features a building block approach that enables students to master the basics and then advance to more sophisticated topics. The ebook begins with a general introduction to metalloproteins and bioinorganic chemistry. Next; it covers:
- Vitamin B12
- Iron proteins
- Copper proteins
- Alkali and alkaline earth cations
Chapters are richly illustrated to help students fully grasp all the chemical concepts that govern the biological action of metalloproteins. In addition; every chapter ends with a list of suggested original reviews and research articles for further investigation of individual topics.
Presenting our most current understanding of metalloproteins; Chemistry of Metalloproteins is recommended for researchers and students in coordination biology; chemistry; and medicine.
Every volume of the Wiley Series in Protein and Peptide Science addresses a specific facet of the field; reviewing the latest findings and presenting a broad range of perspectives. The volumes in this series constitute essential reading for biophysicists; biochemists; geneticists; molecular biologists; physiologists; and cell biologists as well as researchers in proteomics; drug design and development; and molecular medicine with an interest in peptides and proteins.
