About this book

This landmark work provides a comprehensive description of the molecular, chemical and physical properties of proteins. It brings together in one convenient, authoritative resource coverage of all aspects of proteins – biosynthesis, evolution, dynamics, ligand binding and catalysis, in addition to their structures.

"To read this book is to be in the company of a stimulating teacher-one who can be by turns encouraging as he covers familiar ground with a rigorous but fresh approach, disturbing as he exposes the weaknesses of some conventional explanation, and exhilarating as he highlights the many rather simple questions which cannot yet be satisfactorily answered."
