The Chemistry of Metalloproteins: Problems and Solutions in Bioinorganic Chemistry (PDF) ebook addresses the full gamut of questions in metalloprotein science.
Formatted as a question-and-answer guide, this ebook examines all major families of metal binding proteins, presenting our most current understanding of their physicochemical, structural, and functional properties. Moreover, it introduces emerging and new medical applications of metalloproteins. Students will discover both the underlying biology and chemistry of this important area of research in bioinorganic chemistry.
Chemistry of Metalloproteins features a building block approach that enables students to master the basics and then advance to more sophisticated topics. The ebook begins with a general introduction to metalloproteins and bioinorganic chemistry. Next, it covers:
- Vitamin B12
- Iron proteins
- Copper proteins
- Alkali and alkaline earth cations
Chapters are richly illustrated to help students fully grasp all the chemical concepts that govern the biological action of metalloproteins. In addition, every chapter ends with a list of suggested original reviews and research articles for further investigation of individual topics.
Presenting our most current understanding of metalloproteins, Chemistry of Metalloproteins is recommended for researchers and students in coordination biology, chemistry, and medicine.
