Protides of the Biological Fluids is a compendium of papers presented at the XIX Colloquium held at Bruges in 1971. It focuses on three main topics: lipoproteins, proteins, and protein catabolism. The main section of this book contains 60 papers discussing the composition, structure, synthesis, genetics, and function of lipoproteins. Another section is devoted to dielectric relaxation, fluorescence depolarization and determination of protein structure. The final section discusses protein catabolism and the applications of immunoelectrophoresis to protein quantitation. Students and scientists looking for an extensive reference on protein chemistry will find this book invaluable.
