The Proteins, Volume III, Third Edition deals with the structure of proteins in terms of composition, amino acid sequence, and three-dimensional conformation. Special consideration is given to sulfur and the sulfur-containing amino acids because of their unique contribution to the structure and reactivity of certain proteins.
The book reviews the strategies and procedures for determining the amino acid sequence of a protein. The "spinning-cup" sequenator method of Edman and Begg; the role of sulfur in proteins; and the three-dimensional structure of some crystalline proteins by X-ray diffraction analysis are covered as well.
Protein chemists, medical and biological researchers, and students who require more knowledge of protein chemistry will find the book extremely useful.
