Bioorganic Chemistry: Highlights and New Aspects
Ulf Diederichsen, Thisbe K. Lindhorst, B. Westermann, Ludger A. Wessjohann
Wiley, Dec 16, 1999 - Science - 456 pages
The understanding of (patho)physiological processes - the biosynthesis of biomolecules such as enzymes, nucleic acids, and secondary metabolites; the pathways of signaltransduction; or the function of pharmaceutical agents - is of increasing importance not only for drug research but also for the development of new synthetic methods in organic chemistry and biochemistry. In a truly interdisciplinary way bioorganic chemistry unites the central questions of biochemistry, medicinal chemistry, organic chemistry, and spectroscopy.
This book fills a void in this rapidly growing field of chemistry and gives a thorough yet understandable introduction for advanced students and researchers alike. Contributions of more than sixty scientists provide a topical overview of recent advances in: drug development based on natural products; the biosynthesis, activity, and application of enzymes; carbohydrates; peptides; nucleic acids; analytical methods in bioorganic chemistry.
This book will be an appetizer for all - students and researchers alike - seeking orientation in this fascinating field of chemistry.
