Isoenzymes in Biology and Medicine attempts to give an account of the study of isoenzymes in relation to humans, animals, insects, higher plants, fungi, protozoa, algae, and bacteria. This book discusses the chemical structure, physiological aspects, metabolic role, and function of isoenzyme observations in genetic, ontogenic, and phylogenic studies. A detailed account of the use of isoenzyme in the diagnosis and pathogenesis of disease and control of therapy is also provided. This text likewise considers the isoenzymes of the oxidoreductases, transferases, and hydrolases, including its relation to clinical medicine. This publication is intended for biochemists, biologists, clinical biochemists and physicians.
