Book information

  • Published: August 1995
  • ISBN: 978-0-12-182157-9


"This book makes a unique is...the first place to turn when thinking about how to measure, analyze, and interpret the thermodynamics of conformational change and interactions of proteins and nucleic acids. It would make a fine textbook for a graduate course...Instructors who teach courses in less depth will find it an important background reference. For researchers, it belongs not just in the library, but on the personal bookshelf of anyone who is serious about research in molecular biophysics.."
Praise for the Volume, --Victor A. Bloomfield, University of Minnesota, in BIOPHYSICAL JOURNAL

"These books are a most useful and valuable resource to everyone involved in the field of protein research. They will certainly serve as guidance books and many of the techniques described might remain central to the field of signal transduction in the future."
--Tilat A. Rizvi, University of Cincinnati Medical Center, in TINS
"The Methods in Enzymology series represents the gold-standard."
Praise for the Series, --NEUROSCIENCE
"Incomparably useful."
"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."
"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."
"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."
