Medicinal Chemistry–III provides information pertinent to the fundamental aspects of medicinal chemistry. This book discusses the mechanism of action of drugs at the molecular level. Organized into eight chapters, this book begins with an overview of the systems for protein biosynthesis that are classified according to their mechanism and the selective action of drugs on their reactions. This text then examines the key structure in the biosynthesis of the peptidoglycans of bacterial cell walls. Other chapters consider the enzymes that transcribe DNA synthesizing RNA, which have structural differences in eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells. This book discusses as well the concepts for drug screening as they have been emerged from neurochemical research. The final chapter deals with the significance of molecular orbital theory in the hands of the biologist or chemists, which lies in its ability to derive information regarding the properties of molecules. This book is a valuable resource for organic, physical, and biological chemists.
