    Organic Chemistry of Enzyme-Catalyzed Reactions, Revised Edition

    By: Richard B. Silverman

    Date Released

    Out of Print

    The Organic Chemistry of Enzyme-Catalyzed Reactions is not a book on enzymes, but rather a book on the general mechanisms involved in chemical reactions involving enzymes. An enzyme is a protein molecule in a plant or animal that causes specific reactions without itself being permanently altered or destroyed.

    This is a revised edition of a very successful book, which appeals to both academic and industrial markets.

    Illustrates the organic mechanism associated with each enzyme-catalyzed reaction
    Makes the connection between organic reaction mechanisms and enzyme mechanisms
    Compiles the latest information about molecular mechanisms of enzyme reactions
    Accompanied by clearly drawn structures, schemes, and figures
    Includes an extensive bibliography on enzyme mechanisms covering the last 30 years
    Explains how enzymes can accelerate the rates of chemical reactions with high specificity
    Provides approaches to the design of inhibitors of enzyme-catalyzed reactions
    Categorizes the cofactors that are appropriate for catalyzing different classes of reactions
    Shows how chemical enzyme models are used for mechanistic studies
    Describes catalytic antibody design and mechanism
    Includes problem sets and solutions for each chapter
    Written in an informal and didactic style
