About this book

In Protein Stability and Folding: Theory and Practice, world-class scientists present in a single volume a comprehensive selection of hands-on recipes for all of the major techniques needed to understand the conformational stability of proteins, as well as their three-dimensional folding. The distinguished contributors provide clear, step-by-step instructions along with many troubleshooting tips, alternative procedures, and informative explanations about why certain steps are necessary. Even highly skilled researchers will find many time-saving methods. Among the techniques discussed are fluorescent, ultraviolet, and infrared spectroscopy; HPLC peptide mapping; differential scanning calorimetry; and hydrogen exchange. Shirley's Protein Stability and Folding: Theory and Practice will ensure a significant difference in the outcome of your experiments, producing the result desired even for beginners.

...very useful for any biochemist who needs to understand concepts of protein folding and stability and how protein folding can be monitored and studied. This is a good book for student researchers and should be considered as an addition to courses on protein structure. - Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal
