Extensively revised and updated, the new edition of the highly regarded Handbook of Proteolytic Enzymes is an essential reference for biochemists, biotechnologists and molecular biologists. Edited by world-renowned experts in the field, this comprehensive work provides detailed information on all known proteolytic enzymes to date. This two-volume set unveils new developments on proteolytic enzymes which are being investigatedin pharmaceutical research for such diseases as HIV, Hepatitis C, and the common cold.

Volume I covers aspartic and metallo petidases while Volume II examines peptidases of cysteine, serine, threonine and unknown catalytic type. A CD-ROM accompanies the book containing fully searchable text, specialised scissile bond searches, 3-D color structures and much more.

Review quote

Praise for the Second Edition: "The clear goal of these volumes is to provide complete coverage of proteases. All known enzymes of this class are described. As a reference, this is a very worthwhile contribution. The goals of this book are well met...The major strength of this book is the comprehensive coverage...An essential reference for scientific research...A very impressive offering...Any investigator with a protease question should start here." --Doody's, 2005 "This handbook would be very useful a reference for a library that serves graduate and post-graduate researchers in molecular biology and related fields." --E-STREAMS, 2005

"A very impressive offering. While many of the chapters are short, they provide essential information as well as appropriate references. Any investigator with a protease question should start here." --Doody's "The Handbook of Proteolytic Enzymes, Second Edition provides a structured and systematic, up-to-date account of the information about proteolytic enzymes...an indispensable reference for all researchers utilizing such enzymes in areas of organic chemistry, biochemistry, biotechnology and molecular biology." --Carbohydrate Polymers, April 2005

"This handbook would be a very useful reference for a library that serves graduate and post-graduate researchers in molecular biology and related fields. However, the CD-ROM version may be significantly more useful than the print version, especially for workers adept with bioinformatics." --Rafael Garcia, Chemical
