Enzyme Active Sites and their Reaction Mechanisms provides a one-stop reference on how enzymes "work." Here, Dr. Harry Morrison, PhD and Professor Emeritus at Purdue University, provides a detailed overview of the origin and function of forty enzymes, the chemical details of their active sites, their mechanisms of action, and associated cofactors. The enzymes featured highlight a step forward, along with possible areas of application, thus supporting new research in academic and industrial labs. Each chapter is written in a clear format, including a brief summary of enzyme function and structure, a detailed description of their mechanisms of action and associated co-factors.
Offers a comprehensive, biochemical understanding of enzyme mechanisms and their reaction sites
Supports new research in academic, medical and industrial labs, connecting discoveries powered by recent advances in technology and experimental approaches to areas of application
Features short, carefully structured, actionable chapters on various enzyme classes, thus allowing for easy-use and searchability
Active researchers in biochemistry, medical chemistry, organic chemistry, molecular biology, cell biology, pharmacology; clinician scientists; researchers in industry and pharma
Harry Morrison, PhD is Emeritus Professor at Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN, USA. He joined the Purdue School of Science in 1963, and has since supervised nearly fifty Ph.D. students, and also served as Dean of the College of Science from 1992-2002. Dr. Morrison was instrumental in increasing the numbers and impact of women faculty in the College of Science. After earning a B.A. from Brandeis University in 1957 and a Ph.D. from Harvard in 1961, Dr. Morrison was a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Swiss Federal Institute in Zurich, Switzerland for two years, and following this was a Research Associate at the University of Wisconsin from 1962-1963. Dr. Morrison has published over 170 papers in peer reviewed journals and has edited two books on bioorganic chemistry.
