Proteins: Structures and Molecular Properties

Front Cover
Macmillan, 1993 - Medical - 507 pages
2 Reviews
This landmark work provides a comprehensive description of the molecular, chemical and physical properties of proteins. It brings together in one convenient, authoritative resource coverage of all aspects of proteins - biosynthesis, evolution, dynamics, ligand binding and catalysis, in addition to their structures.

"To read this book is to be in the company of a stimulating teacher-one who can be by turns encouraging as he covers familiar ground with a rigorous but fresh approach, disturbing as he exposes the weaknesses of some conventional explanation, and exhilarating as he highlights the many rather simple questions which cannot yet be satisfactorily answered." Trends in Biochemical Sciences

A biochemistry textbook with a strong emphasis on chemistry and thermodynamics. Notable for its detailed discussions of amino acid chemistry in chapter 1 and the hydrophobic effect (with respect to protein folding) in section 4.3. Read full review
