Helicases from All Domains of Life is the first book to compile information about helicases from many different organisms in a single volume. Research in the helicase field has been going on for a long time now, but the completion of so many genomes of these ubiquitous enzymes has made it difficult to keep up with new discoveries. As the huge number of identified DNA and RNA helicases, along with the structural and functional differences among them, make it difficult for the interested scholar to grasp a comprehensive view of the field, this book helps fill in the gaps.

Key Features

  • Presents updates on the functions and features of helicases across the different kingdoms
  • Begins with a chapter on the evolutionary history of helicases
  • Contains specific chapters on selected helicases of great importance from a biological/applicative point-of-view


Academics and those in industry who study the biology of prokaryotes and eukaryotes
