About this title

Synopsis:

The textbook is clearly written, and is suitable for advanced students, e.g. during their master and PhD course time. It is very suited also for postdocs and young scientists as a textbook if they change fields in their research. The textbook represents a thorough and detailed description of the topics in each of the chapters. As the book selects very important topics of present fundamental research and relevant in medical biochemistry, it can supplement any of the text books in biochemistry and basic medicine already on the market.

Fundamentals of Protein Structure and Function

Engelbert Buxbaum, Dr. rer. nat.

This book serves as an introduction to the fundamentals of protein structure and function. Starting with their make up from simple building blocks called amino acids, the 3-dimensional structure of proteins is explained. This is followed by an introduction into enzymology and modern concepts of enzyme kinetics, taking into account the physiological and medical significance of this often neglected topic. Also covered in the text are enzymes, biocatalysts, enzyme kinetics, hemoglobin, myoglobin, prion proteins, immunoproteins, motor proteins and movement, cell-cell interactions, molecular chaperones and chaperonins, transport of proteins into mitochondria, transport of proteins between cell compartments, transport of solutes across membranes, analytic techniques, protein-ligand interactions, protein purification, and protein structure, size and shape, emphasizing the link between protein structure, physiological function and medical significance.

 

This book is an introductory text for researchers in protein biochemistry, molecular biology, cell biology, chemistry, biophysics and biomedical research. The book also makes an ideal textbook for graduate and advanced undergraduate courses in protein structure and function, and a supplementary text for related courses.

About the Author

Dr. Buxbaum is a biochemist with interest in enzymology and protein science. Dr. Buxbaum has been working on the biochemistry of membrane transport proteins for almost 20 years and has taught courses in biochemistry and molecular medicine at several universities.

 

"The analytical descriptions of structure, biophysics and function of proteins is an extremely important aspect of today’s education in biochemistry."

Martin Sagermann, Ph.D.

University of California, Santa Barbara
