Description

The second edition of the perfect companion for practical course work in enzymology. Now with an improved selection of enzymatic assays based on key metabolic reactions, this book provides the detailed background to the enzymatic reaction and the enzyme per se. Particular emphasis is placed on troubleshooting with the described methods, and, in addition, the new four-color layout throughout features detailed protocols highlighted for easy recognition.

www.wiley-vch.de/home/enzymology: A companion website provides animations for all figures together with supplementary material, for deeper understanding of the partially abstract matter.

“We strongly recommend Bisswanger’s “Practical Enzymology”to the readers of the Journal of Natural Sciences, Biology, and Medicine involved in biomedical research. We believe that this manual has the potential to become a classic of its kind provided that the author will: (a) maintain the simplicity of the writing style and the practical approach to its content in future editions and (b) build up on the provided pool of enzymatic assay protocols.”  (Journal of Natural Science, Biology and Medicine, 1 July 2014)

"For the interested undergraduate, an incoming PhD student, or the experienced scientist working with enzymes for the first time, the book will be certainly worth their time." (Bioessays, 2011)

"In Arthur Kornberg's words there is 'never a dull enzyme'. Bisswanger's 'Practical Enzymology' returns to a similar philosophy of enzymology where important creative research can be carried forward without necessarily needing massive research groups and hugely expensive equipment. For the interested undergraduate, an incoming PhD student, or the experienced scientist working with enzymes for the first time, the book will be certainly worth their time." (Bioessays, 2011)

"This book would be a great resource to both undergraduate and graduate students conducting research that in any way involves enzyme-catalyzed reactions. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals." (Choice, 1 December 2011)

"The book could serve as a practical auxilliary to a theory-oriented textbook in an introductory course . . . . The second has been updated and corrected, color illustrations have been added to the text, and a companion website contains animations and other resources." (Book News, 1 August 2011)
