Description

The Plasma Proteins: Structure, Function, and Genetic Control, Second Edition, Volume II describes the plasma proteins in a systematic and integrated way, with emphasis on structure, function, and genetic control. The text presents the perspectives and a global look at plasma proteins; well-characterized major proteins; and integrated systems of plasma proteins. The emphasis of the studies is mainly on human proteins. Clinical relevance is introduced in terms of principles rather than detail. Biochemists, molecular biologists, physiologists, and laboratory researchers in the field of medicine will find the book useful.
