The first of two volumes containing the proceedings of an October 1989 conference in Bangalore, India, sponsored by the US National Science Foundation. The theme is the molecular mechanisms by which free oxygen and its reduction products, like superoxide and peroxides, react in biological systems. In addition to an overview of the subject, 32 papers discuss cytochrome P-450 catalyzed reactions, oxidases and oxygenases containing a flavin/pteridine, copper-containing oxidases and oxygenases, nonheme iron-containing and other oxygenases, and peroxidases in cell protection and metabolism. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
