Introduction to Protein Structure
by Carl-Ivar Brändén, John Tooze
Introduction to Protein Structure gives an account of the principles of protein structure, with examples of key proteins in their biological context generously illustrated in full color top illuminate the structural principles described in the text. The first few chapters introduce the general principles of protein structure both for novices and for non-specialists needing a primer. Subsequent chapters use specific examples of proteins to show how they fulfill a wide variety of biological functions. The book ends with chapters on the experimental approach to determining and predicting protein structure, as well as engineering new proteins to modify their functions.
Introduction to Proteins
by Amit Kessel, Nir Ben-Tal
Introduction to Proteins shows how proteins can be analyzed in multiple ways. It refers to the roles of proteins and enzymes in diverse contexts and everyday applications, including medical disorders, drugs, toxins, chemical warfare, and animal behavior.
This edition includes a brand-new chapter on enzymatic catalysis and biochemistry, an in-depth discussion of G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs), and a wider-scale description of methods for studying proteins.
