Abstract:

The VitalBook e-book of Introduction to Protein Structure, Second Edition is inly available in the US and Canada at the present time. To purchase or rent please visit http://store.vitalsource.com/show/9780815323051Introduction to Protein Structure provides an account of the principles of protein structure, with examples of key proteins in their biological context generously illustrated in full-color to illuminate the structural principles described in the text. The first few chapters introduce the general principles of protein structure both for novices and for non-specialists needing a primer. Subsequent chapters use specific examples of proteins to show how they fulfill a wide variety of biological functions. The book ends with chapters on the experimental approach to determining and predicting protein structure, as well as engineering new proteins to modify their functions.
