Lanthanides in Enzymology and Microbiology, a new volume in the Foundations and Frontiers in Enzymology series, offers a discussion of lanthanides and lanthanide-dependent enzyme biology. In this book, global experts consider lanthanide enzymology fundamentals, organismal utilization of lanthanides, distribution and diversity of lanthanide-dependent enzymes, regulation of intracellular levels of lanthanides, gene expression regulation via lanthanides, as well as likely applications of lanthanide binding proteins. Lanthanide-dependent methanol and alcohol dehydrogenase metabolism are considered in both methylotrophs and non-methylotrophs, alongside various application areas, from recovery of rare earth elements to developing lanthanide ion binding peptides and biosynthesis of terpolymers through reverse-oxidation pathways.

In providing this deep context and pathways for future research, this book acts as an invaluable resource in this emerging field for researchers and students of biochemistry, biotechnology, and environmental microbiology alike.
