Offers a comprehensive and practical guide to the field of enzymology
The highly anticipated, expanded, third edition of the classic book on practical enzymology includes new, lab-tested assays for more than 30 enzymes across all enzyme classes. This brings the total up to 150 assay protocols for more than 110 different enzymes. The book also contains a new section on the determination of enzyme-bound metal ions and covers special cases such as multi-enzyme complexes, binding measurements, and immunoassays.
Practical Enzymology, 3rd Edition is composed of two main parts - a general introduction into working with enzymes and a practical part including step-by-step protocols for assaying enzymes, including methods for protein determination and enzyme immobilization. The book also addresses spectroscopic methods, electrochemical methods, radioactive labeling and other instrumental methods. The chapters part of the experimental section systematically covers assays for oxidoreductases; transferases; hydrolases; lyases; isomerases; and ligases (synthetases). Later chapters provide in-depth coverage of multienzyme complexes assays, enzyme relevant parameters, and enzyme immunoassays. The book finishes with two sections that look at binding measurements and methods, and enzymes in technical applications, including the methods and modes for immobilized enzymes.
