'The Handbook of Proteins'
Date:1/22/2008

January 22, 2007, Weinheim, DE: Wiley-Blackwell, the scientific, technical, medical and scholarly publishing business of John Wiley & Sons, Inc., published a comprehensive resource for students and researchers studying protein structure and function.

Proteins are essential components of all living cells, playing key roles in both structure and function of each cell and, ultimately, the entire organism. Their activities include acting as signalling molecules, both messengers and receptors, and as enzymes executing most of the cells tasks.

Thorough knowledge of proteins, their structure, function and their interactions with other molecules in the body is important for the understanding of many diseases and also vital for developing appropriate therapies as many proteins are popular drug targets.

The Handbook of Proteins introduces the reader to the principles of protein biochemistry and at the same time describes traditional and state-of-the-art techniques for elucidating protein function and structure.

The 2 Volume Set consists of self-contained, peer-reviewed articles written by leading scientists in each field. The volumes feature introductory articles aimed at undergraduates and non-specialists, which provide basic information and a list of recommended further reading to encourage the reader to explore a topic in more depth. This approach helps the student reader progress from textbook material to primary literature. The introductory articles are complemented by advanced articles, written for postgraduate students and research workers. These contain more detailed information and key references allowing the reader to further investigate a specific area. This format allows professionals to use the books as a quick reference source.

Derived from the largest reference work in the Life Sciences, the acclaimed Encyclopedia of Life Sciences

  • Presented in full-colour throughout
  • Assembles more than 200 peer-reviewed articles, written by top scientists in each field
  • The articles are self-contained, cross-referenced throughout and offer reliable information. Almost all aspects of protein structure, function, and chemistry are illuminated by one or more articles
  • Numerous articles also provide an introduction to methods for purifying proteins, determining their structures and properties, and cataloguing them in databases
  • Dozens of additional articles detail important aspects of enzymatic catalysis and protein-ligand interactions
