Proteins are essential to life, having a vital role in all living organisms. They are the ultimate micro machines: some are building blocks, joining with other substances to make the cells from which we are all formed. Some are catalysts, speeding up essential biochemical reactions to keep our cells alive. Yet others help cells to communicate, to move, and to build up the complex mix of tissues that make up our bodies. Introduction to Protein Science provides a broad ranging introduction to the contemporary study of proteins suitable for students on biosciences degrees internationally. Starting by describing the structure of proteins and how these structures can be studied, the book goes on to illustrate the wide range of functions that proteins have, showing how the shape of a protein is intimately linked to the function that it has. The book then describes how new experimental and computational techniques are helping us to predict a protein s structure and function, and how this is paving the way for us to design new proteins with specific characteristics, with exciting implications in areas such as drug design. Written by Arthur Lesk, the author of the highly successful Introduc

Review:

This new edition is, above all, an excellent update of the previous one. * Acta Crystallographica Section D, Volume D72, Part 12 (pp. 1227-1309, 1 December 2016) * It would be difficult to express the qualities of this book better than Doolittle (2005) in his review of the first edition: How can a book with only seven chapters cover so many topics so thoroughly and so well? For one thing, Lesk is a gifted writer with a knack for making complex material eminently understandable. For another, he has managed an adroit balancing of the carefully crafted main text with dozens of well-situated "boxes" and "case studies", each of which provides intriguing connections to the subject at hand. * Acta Crystallographica Section D, Volume D72, Part 12 (pp. 1227-1309, 1 December 2016) * The third edition of Introduction to Protein Science continues to be a brilliant superior textbook for undergraduate and new postgraduate students in biology and chemistry. * Acta Crystallographica Section D, Volume D72, Part 12 (pp. 1227-1309, 1 December 2016) *

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. 3rd Revised edition. Language: English. Brand new Book. Over the last century, the centrality of proteins to life on earth has become increasingly clear - 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. In fact, the more they are studied, the more proteins continue to reveal new and exciting functions. Indeed, by studying amino acid sequences and protein structures it is even possible to unravel someof the mysteries of evolution itself.Introduction to Protein Science, 3rd edition provides a rich and broad introduction to this fascinating field by covering not only the structure and 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 emphasized throughout, to help students appreciate the relevance of the subject to the real world. Active learning is encouraged by the provision offrequent exercises and problems, with further 'weblems' - web-based problems - on the Online Resource Centre.Online Resource CentreThe Online Resource Centre to accompany Introduction to Protein Science features:For students:*Answers to end-of-chapter exercises, and hints to end-of-chapter problems, so students can check their understanding.*Rotating structures from the book to help students visualize proteins in 3D.*Web-based problems for students to complete online.For registered adopters:*Figures from the book in electronic format, ready to download.
