Proteins and Related Subjects, Volume 22: Protides of Biological Fluids covers the proteins of the intercellular matrix, along with the genetic defects and polymorphism of the human plasma proteins and isotachophoresis. The text first deals with the connective tissue proteins, along with the anabolic and catabolic enzymes of connective tissues. Next, the selection details the isolation and purification of various proteins, their metabolism, and function. The text also talks about the genetic defects and polymorphism of human plasma proteins, which includes the abnormalities of specific proteins. The last section covers the utilization of isotachophoresis as an analytical tool for the detection and characterization of amino acids, low-weight metabolites, and proteins. The book will be of great use to students, researchers, and practitioners of biological science.
