By Roger L. Lundblad, Fiona Macdonald
Edited by way of well known protein scientist and bestselling writer Roger L. Lundblad, with the help of Fiona M. Macdonald of CRC Press, this fourth version of the Handbook of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology represents a dramatic revision — the 1st in 20 years — of 1 of biochemistry's such a lot referenced works. This variation gathers a wealth of knowledge now not simply received, together with info now not discovered at the web.
Offering a molecular viewpoint no longer on hand twenty years in the past, it presents actual and chemical information on proteins, nucleic acids, lipids, and carbohydrates. offered in an equipped, concise, and simple-to-use layout, this renowned reference permits easy access to the main usually used information. masking quite a lot of subject matters, from classical biochemistry to proteomics and genomics, it additionally info the homes of well-known biochemicals, laboratory solvents, and reagents.
Just a small sampling of the wealth of data came across contained in the handbook:
- Buffers and buffer strategies
- Heat capacities and combustion degrees
- Reagents for the chemical amendment of proteins
- Comprehensive category method for lipids
- Biological features of supplements
- A large number of UV information
- Recommendations for nomenclature and tables in biochemical thermodynamics
- Guidelines for NMR measurements for selection of low and high pKa values
- Viscosity and density tables
- Chemical and actual houses of varied advertisement plastics
- Generic source-based nomenclature for polymers
- Therapeutic enzymes
