Chemistry of the Cell Interface, Part B deals with the relationship of structure to biochemical reactions.
This book is divided into three chapters. Chapter VI focuses on the water's contribution to the reaction systems, emphasizing the nature of the cell's aqueous phases. The matrix-supported enzymes, technology of the model, and properties of enzymes bound to polymeric matrices that have been contrasted with solution and membrane particle systems are elaborated in Chapter VII. The last chapter focuses on the aspects of protein chemistry pertinent to the design of interface experimental systems.
Other topics include the structure of water near interfaces, functional role of water in biological systems, and adsorbed and ionically bonded enzymes. The enzymes insolubilized by the use of bridging compounds and changes in protein conformation associated with chemical modification are likewise covered in this text.
This publication is a good source for morphologists, chemists, and specialists of disciplines related to the chemistry of cell interface.
