About this book

Peptides play a crucial role in many physiological processes, whether as neurotransmitters, hormones and antibiotics. Research has shown their importance in neuroscience, immunology, pharmacology, and cell biology. The rapid developments in peptide research over the past few decades make it very difficult for newcomers to gain an overview of the field.

The Handbook of Biologically Active Peptides is a definitive, large, all-encompassing reference that will be indispensable for peptide researchers, 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 that they would not ordinarily be familiar.
