Proteins in Biology and Medicine contains the proceedings of the 1981 U.S.-China Conference on Proteins in Biology and Medicine, held in Shanghai, China. The papers explore the structure-function relationships of proteins, including their regulatory properties. Topics range from the regulation of biological processes to the structure-function relationships of enzymes and blood proteins, along with protein-protein interactions. Organized into four sections encompassing 23 chapters, this book begins with an overview of structure-function relationships in phospholipase A2, including the enzyme found in snake venom. It then discusses the suicide substrates for specific target enzymes, the conformation of proteins and peptides in solution, the serum lipoproteins and their relationship to atherosclerosis, the abnormal hemoglobin in the Chinese population, and the mung bean trypsin inhibitor. Moreover, the book explains the streptokinase-plasminogen interaction and the molecular localization of protein-protein interaction sites in the lactose synthase system. The final chapter analyzes the structure and biological activities of plant lectins. This book will be of interest to biochemists, microbiologists, molecular biologists, and biophysicists.
