Amino Acids, Peptides and Proteins in Organic Chemistry, by Andrew B. Hughes

By Andrew B. Hughes

This is the second one of 5 books within the Amino Acids, Peptides and Proteins in natural Synthesis series. 

Closing a spot within the literature, this can be the single sequence to hide this significant subject in natural and biochemistry. Drawing upon the mixed services of the foreign "who's who" in amino acid examine, those volumes signify a true benchmark for amino acid chemistry, supplying a complete dialogue of the prevalence, makes use of and purposes of amino acids and, through extension, their polymeric varieties, peptides and proteins.

The useful price of every quantity is heightened by way of the inclusion of experimental procedures.


The five volumes disguise the subsequent topics:

Volume 1: Origins and Synthesis of Amino Acids

Volume 2: changed Amino Acids, Organocatalysis and Enzymes

Volume three: development Blocks, Catalysis and Coupling Chemistry

Volume four: safety Reactions, Medicinal Chemistry, Combinatorial Synthesis

Volume five: research and serve as of Amino Acids and Peptides


Clearly established in 3 major sections, this moment quantity within the sequence starts with the synthesis and chemistry of converted amino acids. the second one half offers with the catalysis of reactions through amino acids, whereas the ultimate part is dedicated to enzymes, together with proteases as catalysts, semisynthetic enzymes, catalysis through peptide-based enzyme types, substrate and protein reputation, in addition to mammalian and bug peptide hormones.


Originally deliberate as a six quantity sequence, Amino Acids, Peptides and Proteins in natural Chemistry now completes with 5 volumes yet is still entire in either scope and coverage.

Further information regarding the five quantity Set and buying information should be seen here.
