About this book

This book, entitled Respiration in Archaea and Bacteria, summarizes the achievements of the past decade in the biochemistry, bioenergetics, structural and molecular biology of respiratory processes in selected groups of prokaryotes. It includes a series of Chapters providing an extensive coverage of the respiratory membrane-bound bacterial redox complexes and enzymes; it also covers evolution of respiration, cytochrome c biogenesis, bacterial haemoglobins, and oxidases as redox sensors.
The book is intended for graduate students and researchers in microbiology, biochemistry, bacterial molecular biology, and biotechnology.

From the reviews: "This is a very rich volume and the writing and organization are well suited to make it easy for readers to readily gain an overview of each of the topics. A high standard has been set for the next volume in the series, also edited by Zannoni, which will be subtitled 'Diversity of Prokaryotic Respiratory Systems'." (Robert Gennis, Professor of Biochemistry and of Biophysics and Computational Biology, University of Illinois, Urbana, IL, USA in Photosynthesis Research 83, 2005)
