The authors have chosen, wisely, to exemplify mechanistic analysis through an exposition of examples of the elucidation of the mechanisms of action of speci"c enzymes. There are a number of small typographical errors, for example in URLs, and transposed labels of graphs and tables. Primary, secondary, tertiary and quaternary structures are de"ned and methods of determination are discussed. Two main subjects are emphasized; the use of microorganisms in industrial processes and the use of immobilized enzymes in industry. However, there are a couple of important technical omissions.
An extensive section on chain folding includes a delineation of the various forces that determine three-dimensional structures. This chapter is by far the most complete and longest chapter in the book.
Chapter 4 introduces enzyme kinetics with a primer on measuring rates and the systematic analysis of steadystate kinetic data. Two-substrate enzyme kinetics is given fairly thorough coverage, and three- and four-substrate kinetics are mentioned without details.
The subject of presteady-state kinetics is introduced. Chapter 5 on mechanism of enzyme action is the largest subject in the book and has been skillfully "tted into a limited space, thanks to the extensive structural coverage in Chapter 3.
Theory is presented early, followed by a sampling of the more general methods that have been applied to studies of reaction mechanisms. This chapter includes a few color graphics in representing overall enzyme structures. The authors have chosen, wisely, to exemplify mechanistic analysis through an exposition of examples of the elucidation of the mechanisms of action of speci"c enzymes. These include chymotrypsin, triose phosphate isomerase, dehydroquinase, lactate dehydrogenase, and DNA methyltransferase.
The control of enzyme activity is discussed in considerable detail in Chapter 6. The principal theories of allosteric regulation are presented in detail, including the concerted transition and the ligand-induced conformational transition models. Treatment of data and graphical representation of results allow the two main models to be exempli"ed and distinguished.
A major part of the chapter is devoted to case studies of the control of metabolic pathways, with glycolysis and glycogen synthesis serving as concrete examples. Principles such as ampli"cation of signals are emphasized. Chapter 7 introduces organized enzyme systems as multienzyme complexes. Speci"c examples are selected for detailed description.
These include some familiar cases such as the pyruvate dehydrogenase complexes, and interesting but less familiar cases such as the glycine decarboxylase complex, The description of the structure and tunnel function of tryptophan synthase is very welcome.
The book went to press before the tunneling function of carbamoyl phosphate CAP synthetase complex was known, so this aspect of the subject is treated as an example of substrate channeling without mechanistic exposition. However, the complex of the CAP synthetase and dihydroorotase is presented as a functional unit in pyrimidine biosynthesis. Other welcome examples presented in signi"cant detail are the fatty acid synthase complex and the multidomain, multienzyme proteins in the biosynthesis of aromatic amino acids.
This is a rapidly expanding "eld that includes new examples that could not be included in the chapter, but many of the principles of multienzyme systems are presented here. Chapter 8 on enzymes in the cell explains how enzymes within cells are generally localized in subcellular organelles, membranes, or the cytosol. Intracellular compartmentation of enzymes and of metabolic pathways as well as the organization of membrane-bound enzymes forms the subject matter for this chapter. This is a welcome exposition of the actual state and function of enzymes in cells, especially eukaryotic cells.
Degradation mechanisms including proteasome function and ubiquitin signaling are delineated.
The book is rounded out with very brief chapters on clinical enzymology and enzyme technology. A few of the most common clinical assays for heart and liver diseases are described in Chapter 10, together with detection of de"ciencies of enzyme activities.
Enzyme therapy is introduced. In Chapter 11, enzyme technology is introduced. Two main subjects are emphasized; the use of microorganisms in industrial processes and the use of immobilized enzymes in industry. The book is very well written and full of information.
It can serve as a useful text for a survey course in enzymology.
Students can acquire the well-known concepts for most aspects of enzymology. Less attention is paid in this book to forward aspects of enzymology.
This may be well, for enzymology is a "eld that has resisted projection into the future. The book should work best for students in allied "elds who wish to be educated in the essential aspects of enzymology. Perry A. Surzycki manages to mix a nice blend of theory, detailed methods, and troubleshooting into a single page, spiral-bound volume.
Advanced undergraduate students and their instructors are his target audience, and he does well reaching both. The "rst chapter, may be the best, gives a broad introduction to the isolation and puri"cation of nucleic acids with a focus on DNA. This is a comprehensive chapter in which Surzycki takes the reader through the rationale for using a variety of reagents to break open cells, remove RNA, and achieve maximal deproteinization of the lysate.
He also gives a thorough discussion of the concentration, storage, and assessment of DNA purity. Even experienced researchers will "nd new knowledge here.
The next three chapters focus on the recovery of genomic DNA from animal cells, plant cells, and bacteria. The "fth chapter covers the isolation of plasmid DNA. The writing is clear and the protocols are easy to follow throughout. The indexing is good and all the chapters are richly referenced.
The presentation of visual information is good with one exception: I found no glaring technical errors and only a few typographical errors. I am impressed with Surzycki's attempts to alert students to potential pitfalls throughout the manual. For example, I appreciate and so will students!
Professor Surscyki reviews a variety of commercially available techniques for the puri"cation of DNA and RNA, and includes some protocols that supplement vendor's instructions. However, there are a couple of important technical omissions.
In the discussion of plasmid DNA isolation, Surzycki does not warn the reader to be sure to remove ALL of the supernatant after centrifugation of bacteria out of the culture medium this is especially important with Terri"c Broth. Also the reader is not warned adequately to carefully mix the NaOH solution or the neutral high-salt solution to avoid shearing genomic DNA a signi"cant problem with large-scale plasmid isolations.
In the discussion of colony and plaque hybridization, Surzycki avoids the use of India ink to mark plates and "lters. This is "ne for veterans but fraught with peril for novices.
The potential buyer should also be warned that the DNA cloning chapter is limited in scope. On the other hand, the discussion of the stoichiometry of ligation is the best that I have read in a long time. Given that this is supposed to be an introductory text, I suppose this omission is acceptable. To my mind and bias, the weakest chapter is the PCR chapter. The general guidelines for PCR are discussed well; however, the chapter would bene"t greatly with a more thorough discussion of methods to enhance PCR speci"city and yield.

Popular Features. New in Pre-clinical Medicine: Fundamentals of Enzymology: Cell and Molecular Biology of Catalytic Proteins. Description Since the publication of the successful and popular second edition of Fundamentals of Enzymology in there has been a large increase in the knowledge of several aspects of enzymology, not least the rapid acceleration of structural characterization of enzymes and the development of the field of bioinformatics.
This new edition places appropriate emphasis on the new knowledge and consolidates the strengths of the previous editions.
