The critically acclaimed laboratory standard, Methods in Enzymology, is one of the most highly respected publications in the field of biochemistry. Since 1955, each volume has been eagerly awaited, frequently consulted, and praised by researchers and reviewers alike. The series contains much material still relevant today--truly an essential publication for researchers in all fields of life sciences.
Biochemists, molecular biologists, cell biologists, microbiologists, physiologists, neuroscientists, and immunologists.
Methods in Enzymology
Hardbound, 765 Pages
Published: December 1994
Imprint: Academic Press
"Indeed, the volume encompasses not only preparation, assay, and function, but also a remarkably rich lode of information on the underlying biology of the tissues, microorganisms, and viruses that are the sources of the peptidasesunder discussion... This volume is a welcome and valuable addition to the biochemist's library."
Praise for the Volume , --ANALYTICAL BIOCHEMISTRY
"The Methods in Enzymology series represents the gold-standard."
Praise for the Series , --NEUROSCIENCE
"It is a true 'methods' series, including almost every detail from basic theory to sources of equipment and reagents, with timely documentation provided on each page."
"The series has been following the growing, changing and creation of new areas of science. It should be on the shelves of all libraries in the world as a whole collection."
--CHEMISTRY IN INDUSTRY
"The appearance of another volume in that excellent series, Methods in Enzymology, is always a cause for appreciation for those who wish to successfully carry out a particular technique or prepare an enzyme or metabolic intermediate without the tiresome prospect of searching through unfamiliar literature and perhaps selecting an unproven method which is not easily reproduced."
--AMERICAN SOCIETY OF MICROBIOLOGY NEWS
"If we had some way to find the work most often consulted in the laboratory, it could well be the multi-volume series Methods in Enzymology...a great work."
"A series that has established itself as a definitive reference for biochemists."
