Editorial Reviews

Review

"This reviewer has not encountered a book better than this one for students interested in learning more about structure-function relationships in proteins." --B. Williams, Choice

"The modular structure works well for this primer. ... The authors stress the concepts underlying protein structure, regulation, design, and mechanism. These are the fundamentals that students often miss in the rush to memorize details. ... For teachers, the organization of the book makes it easy to arrange a course or series of lectures by simply picking and choosing the topics to be covered. For students, this volume provides a well-organized introduction to protein structure and function with up-to-date references to the literature." --Steven Smith, The Quarterly Review of Biology

About the Author

Gregory A Petsko studied chemistry and classics as an undergraduate at Princeton University before going to Oxford as a Rhodes scholar to work for his PhD with David Phillips. He then pursued his interest in the mechanism of enzyme catalysis at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where he taught courses in chemistry and detective fiction, before moving to Brandeis where he is currently Director of the Rosenstiel Center and has extended his research interests to include the use of yeast genetics to study the unfolded protein response pathway, and the mechanism of action of the ABC transporter proteins. Dagmar Ringe graduated in chemistry from Barnard College, Columbia, and took her PhD in bioorganic chemistry from Boston University. She then pursued her research interest in the study of enzyme catalysis by X-ray crystallography at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology before moving to Brandeis where she is Professor of Biochemistry and Chemistry and where the principal focus of her research is on structure-function relationships in enzymes of particular industrial and pharmaceutical importance.

It is great! Concise, to the point, with good illustrations, teaches you the essentials of protein structure and function in little time.

Generally,the book is excellent and the information is condensed in a simple language which can be understood easily. I also liked the proteins cartoons, the protein data bank number,fantastic! In additions, the book have links,words or terms defination and further references which proves to be helpful.

This is a good reference that is written in a less dry style than most textbooks, which appears to happen once you get to graduate level textbooks. It is a good book for biochemists and those who use biochemistry; I read this book to develop an understanding of my techniques involving antibodies and target proteins.

I recommend skimming through a copy before you buy, to determine if you will benefit from it (it may be too specialized for some, and some chemistry background is very helpful).

I've gotten more out of the first 50 pages of this book than many other biochemistry books--which have, in my experience, emphasized details over concepts. This book is great for those who'd like to learn and understand the fundamentals of protein science. It is exactly what it says it is; nothing more, nothing less--and it's wonderful.
