About this book

In this book, for the first time, the different molecular and cellular aspects of enzymology are presented together. Until now, there has been no book available in which these different aspects are treated in the same volume. In addition, besides the theoretical developments, this book provides a wealth of practical information for experimentalists.

From the reviews: "The entire text would provide the best picture of the current state of enzymology, each chapter is understandable on its own. Thus, this work can be used as a reference source for specific topics of interest. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduate through professional collections." (L. J. Liotta, Choice, Vol. 48 (2), October, 2010)
