Not only are proteins the fundamental building blocks of all life forms, but they also have a wide range of functions - from forming enzymes acting as catalysts for specific reactions, to crucial molecules such as antibodies in the immune system, and as signalling molecules between cells. Introduction to Protein Science, 3rd edition provides a rich and broad introduction to this fascinating field by covering not only the structureand function of proteins, but also the methods and experimental techniques used to study them. The practical applications of our knowledge to diverse fields such as biotechnology and medicine are emphasizedthroughout, to help students appreciate the relevance of the subject to the real world.

This is truly a monument to the architecture of proteins: a gorgeous tour of the structures that dwell within us. The 'frozen music' of biology is clearly presented in beautiful detail. The computer-generated renderings give pause to anyone who wonders what God was up to when She thought about creating life. Proteins, as represented here, are Her finest efforts. Visually stunning is only the most obvious aspect of this amazing introduction to structural genomics (proteinomics): the systematic study of protein structures. This is a serious graduate level textbook. The text should be considered for any introductory graduate level course in biochemistry. Beginning with sound chemical principles, the text lays a solid foundation for the concepts of secondary and tertiary structure within protein. The author builds a superstructure from which to view the motifs of cofactor binding domains and active sites in enzymes.Based on the authors successful book on the principles of protein structure This book explains the general characteristics of proteins that underlie the very great variety of protein folding patterns observed in nature. It is profusely illustrated with superb computer graphics in full colour throughout the text. Most of the illustrations are stereo diagrams, which are stunning three-dimensional representations of protein structure. The book also introduces the use of the World Wide Web in bioinformatics. To suit the needs of courses, each chapter includes recommended reading, lists of useful web sites, traditional exercises, and a newly-introduced type of exercise called a weblem, for WEB-based probLEM.

As the tools and techniques of structural biophysics assume greater roles in biological research and a range of application areas, learning how proteins behave becomes crucial to understanding their connection to the most basic and important aspects of life. With more than 350 color images throughout, Introduction to Proteins: Structure, Function, and Motion presents a unified, in-depth treatment of the relationship between the structure, dynamics, and function of proteins. Taking a structural–biophysical approach, the authors discuss the molecular interactions and thermodynamic changes that transpire in these highly complex molecules. The text incorporates various biochemical, physical, functional, and medical aspects. It covers different levels of protein structure, current methods for structure determination, energetics of protein structure, protein folding and folded state dynamics, and the functions of intrinsically unstructured proteins. The authors also clarify the structure–function relationship of proteins by presenting the principles of protein action in the form of guidelines. This comprehensive, color book uses numerous proteins as examples to illustrate the topics and principles and to show how proteins can be analyzed in multiple ways. It refers to many everyday applications of proteins and enzymes in medical disorders, drugs, toxins, chemical warfare, and animal behavior. Downloadable questions for each chapter are available at CRC Press Online.
