Recent expansion in the range and sophistication of techniques in protein science has provided a wealth of new information.

This book deals with the latest achievements by the most active researchers in the field of enzyme catalysis. Twenty-eight authors from Japan, the USA and Israel provide first-class information on enzyme structure and function studies. Their ideas for new methodologies will stimulate the redesign of more effective biocatalysts.

A discussion of new trends, and advanced techniques is followed by detailed presentations of the structures and functions of such important enzymes as:

- Aspartate Aminotransferase
- Tryptophan Synthase
- Alanine Racemase
- Tryptophanase
- Superoxid Dismutase
- H+-ATPas
