About this book

The Handbook of Biologically Active Peptides 2nd edition is the definitive, all-encompassing, indispensable reference for individuals ranging from peptide researchers, to biochemists, cell and molecular biologists, neuroscientists, pharmacologists, and endocrinologists. Chapters are designed to be a source for workers in the field and will enable researchers working in a specific area to examine other related areas with which they would not ordinarily be familiar. Peptides play a crucial role in many physiological processes, including actions as neurotransmitters, hormones, and antibiotics. Research has shown their importance in such fields as neuroscience, immunology, pharmacology, and cell biology.

The Handbook of Biologically Active Peptides 2nd edition presents this tremendous body of knowledge in the field of biologically active peptides in one single reference. The section editors and contributors represent some of the most sophisticated and distinguished scientists working in basic sciences and clinical medicine. It presents all aspects of biologically active peptides in one resource. It features 20+ sections spanning plant, bacterial, fungal, venom, and invertebrate peptides to general peptides. It includes immunological, inflammatory, cancer, vaccine, and neurotropphic peptides. It discusses peptide precursors, mRNA distribution, processing, and receptors, not just pathophysiological implications.
