Enzymes Book Review:

Enzymes, Second Edition provides information pertinent to the developments in the field of enzymology. This book presents the properties of enzymes as chemical catalysts or simply as chemical substances. Organized into 13 chapters, this edition begins with an overview of the range of action or specificity of enzymes. This text then discusses the special techniques employed in the isolation of enzymes and explores the considerable progress in the study of the properties and functions of enzymes. Other chapters consider the mechanism of enzyme catalysis by more direct methods, including the use of isotopes. This book discusses as well the mechanism of the biosynthesis of enzymes and the means by which their chemical structure is determined by the genetic material of the chromosomes. The final chapter deals with the essential aspects of the enzymatic system linking energy-producing processes with energy-utilizing processes. This book is a valuable resource for biochemists, physical chemists, and research workers.

Enzymes in Blood Plasma Book Review:

Enzymes in Blood Plasma gives a comprehensive account of the current state of research and practical application of biochemistry and biology, as well as the pathology and clinical aspects of plasma enzymes. Enzymes in blood plasma, for reasons of principle and methods, are not limited to plasma-specific enzymes, which are only briefly mentioned. Emphasis will rather be placed on plasma-nonspecific enzymes, i.e., enzymes of identical properties in plasma and serum. Their action is, for technical reasons, generally determined in serum. The enzymes in plasma will be stressed in this presentation, but the situation in other extracellular spaces and even extracorporeal areas such as urine, excreta, and feces will be included. There exists no basic difference of enzyme function in these biological areas. Many of the findings reported in this volume were obtained with the old units and methods, rather than the International Unit. For this reason, the section dealing with methods includes a table for conversion, which can be used for comparison of data, insofar as these data were obtained under optimalconditions of measurement.

Handbook of Proteolytic Enzymes Volume 1 Book Review:

Handbook of Proteolytic Enzymes, Second Edition, Volume 1: Aspartic and Metallo Peptidases is a compilation of numerous progressive research studies on proteolytic enzymes. This edition is organized into two main sections encompassing 328 chapters. This handbook is organized around a system for the classification of peptidases, which is a hierarchical one built on the concepts of catalytic type, clan, family and peptidase. The concept of catalytic type of a peptidase depends upon the chemical nature of the groups responsible for catalysis. The recognized catalytic types are aspartic, cysteine, metallo, serine, threonine, and the unclassified enzymes, while clans and families are groups of homologous peptidases. Homology at the level of a family of peptidases is shown by statistically significant relationship in amino acid sequence to a representative member called the type example, or to another member of the family that has already been shown to be related to the type example. Each chapter discusses the history, activity, specificity, structural chemistry, preparation, and biological aspects of the enzyme. This book will prove useful to enzyme chemists and researchers.

Enzymes Biotechnology Handbook Book Review:

Industrial biotechnology is the practice of using cells to generate industrially useful products. An enzyme is a protein that catalyzes, or speeds up, a chemical reaction. Enzymes are the focal point of biotechnological processes, without them biotechnology as a subject would not exist. The main advantage of enzymes compared to most other catalysts is their stereo, region and chemo selectivity and specificity. Enzymes are responsible for many essential biochemical reactions in micro organisms, plants, animals, and human beings. Biotechnology processes may have potential in energy production, specifically in the substitution of renewable plant biomass for fossil feedstock. This will depend on the development of enzymes able to degrade cellulose in plant biomass and designing methods to recycle or dispose of spent biomass. With time, research, and improved protein engineering methods, many enzymes have been genetically modified to be more effective at the desired temperatures, pH, or under other manufacturing conditions typically inhibitory to enzyme activity (e.g. harsh chemicals), making them more suitable and efficient for industrial or home applications. Enzymes are used in the extraction of natural products, as catalysts in organic chemistry, in clinical analysis, in industrial processes, and so on. The application of enzymes is found in many different fields and it is one of the good sectors to venture. In coming few years it is estimated that world enzyme demand will average annual increases of 6.3 percent. This book basically deals with principles of industrial enzymology, basis of utilization of soluble and immobilized, enzymes in industrial processes, principles of immobilization of enzymes, enzymes in clinical analysis principles, practical aspects of large-scale protein purification, the applications of enzymes in industry, use of enzymes in the extraction of natural products, data on techniques of enzyme immobilization and bio affinity procedures etc. In this book you can find all the basic information required on the fundamental aspects of the enzymes, their chemistry, bio chemistry as well as detailed information of their applications a wide variety of industrial processes etc. The book is very useful for research scholars, technocrats, institutional libraries and entrepreneurs who want to enter into the field of manufacturing of enzymes.

Enzyme Handbook 7 Book Review:

Recent progress on enzyme immobilisation, enzyme production, coenzyme regeneration and enzyme engineering has opened up fascinating new fields for the potential application of enzymes in a large range of different areas. As more progress in research and application of enzymes has been made the lack of an up-to-date overview of enzyme molecular properties has become more apparent. Therefore, we started the development of an enzyme data in formation system as part of protein-design activities at GBF. The present book" Enzyme Handbook" represents the printed version of this data bank. In future a computer searchable version will be also available. The enzymes in this Handbook are arranged according to the Enzyme Commission list of enzymes. Some 3000 "different" enzymes will be covered. Frequently enzymes with very different properties are included under the same EC number. Although we intend to give a representative overview on the characteristics and variability of each enzyme the Handbook is not a com pendium. The reader will have to go to the primary literature for more detailed information. Naturally it is not possible to cover all the numerous literature references for each enzyme (for special enzymes up to 40000) if the data re presentation is to be concise as is intended.
