From the Back Cover

Analyzes the latest advances in mechanistic enzymology

Volume 78

Advances in Enzymology and Related Areas of Molecular Biology is a seminal series in the field of biochemistry, offering researchers access to authoritative reviews of the latest discoveries in all areas of enzymology and molecular biology. These landmark volumes date back to 1941, providing an unrivaled view of the historical development of enzymology. The series offers researchers the latest understanding of enzymes, their mechanisms, reactions and evolution, roles in complex biological processes, and their applications in both the laboratory and industry.

Each volume in the series features contributions by leading pioneers and investigators in the field from around the world. All articles are carefully edited to ensure thoroughness, quality, and readability.

Volume 78 focuses on the transglutaminase family of enzymes from the perspective of biochemistry (structure and activity), human disease, and inhibition for therapeutic intervention. The transglutaminases, first described in 1957, are a large, widely distributed family of enzymes canonically responsible for the amidation/transamidation of protein side chains.? The extraordinary diversity of names associated with various enzymatic activities now recognized and aggregated as transglutaminase bears witness to the remarkable diversity of biological roles associated with the activity, including myriad human diseases.

With its wide range of topics and long historical pedigree, Advances in Enzymology and Related Areas of Molecular Biology can be used not only by students and researchers in molecular biology, biochemistry, and enzymology, but also by any scientist interested in the discovery of an enzyme, its properties, and its applications.
