Since the publication of the successful and popular second edition of Fundamentals of Enzymology in 1989 there has been a large increase in the knowledge of several aspects of enzymology, not least the rapid acceleration of structural characterization of enzymes and the development of the field of bioinformatics. This new edition places appropriate emphasis on the new knowledge and consolidates the strengths of the previous editions. As before, Fundamentals of Enzymology 3rd ed gives an all-round view of the field including enzyme purification and characterization, enzyme structure (including information on the web), enzyme kinetics, the mechanisms and control of enzyme action, enzyme folding, how enzymes act in vivo, enzyme synthesis and degradation, and also clinical and industrial applications of enzymology. Throughout the book, the integration of these themes is stressed.
"A textbook for an introductory undergraduate course for students in biochemistry and related biological sciences who have completed an introductory course in biochemistry. Price and Stevens (both biological sciences, U. of Stirling, Scotland) explore the kinetics, structure, and mechanisms of enzymes in systems of increasing complexity from isolated enzymes to those in the cell. Earlier editions appeared in 1982 and 1989."--SciTech Book News
"Enzymology is currently undergoing something of a renaissance and, with the completion of several genome sequencing projects, attention is turning from simply finding the structures of proteins to attempting to understand the structure-function relationships of proteins. Furthermore, the generation of new enzyme catalysts by directed evolution is opening the way to greater industrial use of enzymes. Enzymology is thus one of the most exciting areas of biochemistry today. The appearance of a third edition of Fundamentals of Enzymology ... b
