Bisswanger, Hans 
Wiley-VCH  February 2011  

Softcover  376 pp  ISBN 9783527320769      £65.00
The second edition of the perfect companion for practical course work in enzymology. Now with an improved selection of enzymatic assays based on key metabolic reactions, this book provides the detailed background to the enzymatic reaction and the enzyme per se. Particular emphasis is placed on troubleshooting with the described methods, and, in addition, the new four-color layout throughout features detailed protocols highlighted for easy recognition.

Unique feature: A companion web site provides animations for all figures together with supplementary material, for deeper understanding of the partially abstract matter.
