Enzymatic Reaction Mechanisms Book Review:

Books dealing with the mechanisms of enzymatic reactions were written a generation ago. They included volumes entitled Bioorganic Mechanisms, I and II by T.C. Bruice and S.J. Benkovic, published in 1965, the volume entitled Catalysis in Chemistry and Enzymology by W.P. Jencks in 1969, and the volume entitled Enzymatic Reaction Mechanisms by C.T. Walsh in 1979. The Walsh book was based on the course taught by W.P. Jencks and R.H. Abeles at Brandeis University in the 1960's and 1970's. By the late 1970's, much more could be included about the structures of enzymes and the kinetics and mechanisms of enzymatic reactions themselves, and less emphasis was placed on chemical models. Walshs book was widely used in courses on enzymatic mechanisms for many years. Much has happened in the field of mechanistic enzymology in the past 15 to 20 years. Walshs book is both out-of-date and out-of-focus in todays world of enzymatic mechanisms. There is no longer a single volume or a small collection of volumes to which students can be directed to obtain a clear understanding of the state of knowledge regarding the chemicals mechanisms by which enzymes catalyze biological reactions. There is no single volume to which medicinal chemists and biotechnologists can refer on the subject of enzymatic mechanisms. Practitioners in the field have recognized a need for a new book on enzymatic mechanisms for more than ten years, and several, including Walsh, have considered undertaking to modernize Walshs book. However, these good intentions have been abandoned for one reason or another. The great size of the knowledge base in mechanistic enzymology has been a deterrent. It seems too large a subject for a single author, and it is difficult for several authors to coordinate their work to mutual satisfaction. This text by Perry A. Frey and Adrian D. Hegeman accomplishes this feat, producing the long-awaited replacement for Walshs classic text.

Structural and Functional Aspects of Enzyme Catalysis Book Review:

Enzymes perform the executive role in growth, energy conversion, and repair of a living organism. Their activity is adjusted to their en vironment within the cell, being turned off, switched on, or finely tuned by specific metabolites according to demands at the physiologi cal level. Each enzyme discovered in the long history of enzymology has revealed its own individuality. Even closely related members of a family differ in specificity, stability or regulatory properties. Despite these, at first sight overwhelming aspects of individuality, common factors of enzymic reactions have been recognized. Enzymes are stereospecific catalysts even when a nonspecific process would yield the same product. Knowledge of the detailed stereochemistry of an enzymic reaction helps to deduce reaction mechanisms and to ob tain insight into the specific binding of substrates at the active site. This binding close to catalytically competent groups is related to the enormous speed of enzyme-catalyzed reactions. The physical ba sis of rate-enhancement is understood in principle and further exploit ed in the design of small organic receptor molecules as model enzymes. These aspects of enzyme catalysis are discussed in Session 1. Session 2 emphasizes the dynamic aspects of enzyme substrate inter action. Substrate must diffuse from solution space to the enzyme's surface. This process is influenced and can be greatly facilitated by certain electrostatic propterties of enzymes. The dynamic events during catalysis are studied by relaxation kinetics or NMR techniques.

Introduction to Enzyme and Coenzyme Chemistry Book Review:

Enzymes are giant macromolecules which catalyse biochemical reactions. They are remarkable in many ways. Their three-dimensional structures are highly complex, yet they are formed by spontaneous folding of a linear polypeptide chain. Their catalytic properties are far more impressive than synthetic catalysts which operate under more extreme conditions. Each enzyme catalyses a single chemical reaction on a particular chemical substrate with very high enantioselectivity and enantiospecificity at rates which approach “catalytic perfection”. Living cells are capable of carrying out a huge repertoire of enzyme-catalysed chemical reactions, some of which have little or no precedent in organic chemistry. The popular textbook Introduction to Enzyme and Coenzyme Chemistry has been thoroughly updated to include information on the most recent advances in our understanding of enzyme action, with additional recent examples from the literature used to illustrate key points. A major new feature is the inclusion of two-colour figures, and the addition of over 40 new figures of the active sites of enzymes discussed in the text, in order to illustrate the interplay between enzyme structure and function. This new edition provides a concise but comprehensive account from the perspective of organic chemistry, what enzymes are, how they work, and how they catalyse many of the major classes of enzymatic reactions, and will continue to prove invaluable to both undergraduate and postgraduate students of organic, bio-organic and medicinal chemistry, chemical biology, biochemistry and biotechnology.

PRINCIPLES OF ENZYME TECHNOLOGY Book Review:

Today, enzyme technology, amalgamating enzymology with biotechnology, has become a household name in practically all branches of the contemporary science and technology. The book Principles of Enzyme Technology provides an exhaustive presentation of enzyme technology. The text is organised into four parts out of which the first three are more inclined towards imparting the conceptual aspects of the subject, whereas the fourth part accentuates more on the escalating applications of enzymes in industry, be it food, textile or pharmaceutical. Thus, the book offers a balanced insight into the immense world of enzymes in a single readable volume. HIGHLIGHTS OF THE BOOK • Inclusion of a chapter on Enzyme Engineering and Technology makes the book more future-oriented, highlighting the wonders that the modern science can make. • The textual presentation is very lucid, illustrative and organised in a manner that it is not based solely on the complexity of the subject but also on its usefulness. • Adequate number of references, listing of literature for further reading and problems (both multiple choice and thought based) given at the end of each chapter make the book an ideal tool for learning enzyme technology. Primarily intended as a text for the students of biotechnology, biochemistry and other life science branches, this book will be of immense use to the professionals as well as researchers for teaching and references.

Computational Methods for Analysis and Redesign of Enzyme Active Sites Book Review:

The rational design of enzymes and understanding of enzyme mechanisms both present a tremendous challenge in terms of both computational and experimental methodologies. In this work, we review the current state-of-the-art techniques in enzyme design and present a new computational method for active site redesign, called SABER (Selection of Active/Binding sites for Enzyme Redesign). This program was used to analyze both an existing enzyme redesign from the literature, o-succinyl benzoate synthase, and to predict new scaffolds that might be redesigned function similarly to a designed Kemp elimination enzyme. The logic behind the program is discussed in detail with examples taken from the code. Next, SABER was applied to the problem of predicting catalytic functionality in enzyme active sites. This methodology was used to analyze the active sites from two well-studied enzyme families, the serine proteases and the tyrosine phosphatases, and was found to predict catalytic function with high accuracy. It was then used to analyze the active site of orotidine 5'-monophosphate decarboxylase, an enzyme with an unknown mechanism, and used to support of an imminium-based mechanism of catalysis. Finally, a very challenging rational enzyme design process to catalyze an aromatic Claisen rearrangement is discussed. This led to the design and synthesis of six enzymes, none of which showed any rate acceleration versus the background reaction. During this work, an aromatic Claisen substrate that rearranges rapidly in water was discovered and characterized. This was used to highlight the difficulties in both the enzyme design process and in prediction of hydrogen-bond catalyzed reaction rates in water.
