About this book

Provides key information on a wide range of enzymes commonly used as tools in molecular biology, helping to minimize the time a scientist spends researching the literature to get reactions to work efficiently and allowing the nonenzymologist to design an experiment. Each chapter gives background information on the enzyme selected and those parameters important in its use, describes both the source and application of the enzyme, and provides details on the size and structure of the protein. Specific parameters essential for achieving an optimized reaction are discussed, along with exemplary practical procedures an protocols.

An essential resource for every biochemist and scientist in molecular biology. - Unlisted Drugs
