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. 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, 3D colour structures and much more.


Sample of chapters listed according to catalytic type (chapter order will be reorganized by time of publication):
Aspartic Peptidases: Introduction: aspartic peptidases and their clans; Rous sarcoma virus retropepsin and avian myeloblastosis virus retropepsin; Pepsin F
Cysteine Peptidases: Introduction: the clans and families of cysteine peptidases; Coronavirus picornain-like cysteine proteinase; Calicivirus endopeptidases
Metallopeptidases: Introduction: metallopeptidases and their clans; Ophiolysin; Philodryas venom metalloproteinases
Serine Peptidases: Introduction: unsequenced serine peptidases; Muramoyl-pentapeptide carboxypeptidase; Tail-specific protease
Threonine Peptidases: Introduction: clan PB containing N-terminal nucleophile peptidases; HslVU protease; Glycosylasparaginase and other self-processing N-terminal nucleophile amidohydrolases
