Ribonucleases : Structures and Functions
This volume provides an overview and analysis of specific members of the ribonuclease superfamily of related proteins with functions ranging from tumor growth and tumor inhibition to self-recognition and neurotoxicity. It highlights the functional diversity of ribonucleases and reveals the emerging research opportunities provided by these enzymes.
