Researchers from around the world can access a list of sequences whose structures are soon to be determined; then predicted structures are compared with the experimental results by a panel of experts.
The online results from CASP provide the most up-to-date assessment of the state of the art with regard to prediction techniques. Two main aspects detract from the overall quality of the book.
The "rst is that the inevitable delay in bringing such a book to publication means that many of the authors refer to CASP2 from , whereas CASP4 took place in December , also a number of URLs cited are no longer accessible.
The former point is less serious since much of the progress made in the intervening time is mainly due to improvements in the underlying computation, whereas the software interface to a novel user may remain largely unchanged.
The other irritation relates to the editing. There are a number of small typographical errors, for example in URLs, and transposed labels of graphs and tables. Despite these, it is certainly a useful reference to address for anyone thinking of dipping their toes into this exciting "eld.
Price, Lewis Stevens; Oxford University Press, Oxford, The book Fundamentals of Enzymology, true to its title, is an overview of enzymology that can be used in a survey course on the subject.
The paperback book is pages in length, and the book includes in addition a page appendix listing the common and Enzyme Commission names and numbers of the enzymes mentioned in the text, as well as an 8-page index. Because of the enormous scope of the book and its intent as an introduction, the chapters are written as overviews of principle topics in enzymology, rather than as in-depth perspectives.
The introduction includes brief expositions of the signi"cance of enzymes in terms of their biological functions, speci"cities stereospeci"cities, and regulation.
Nomenclature and the functional basis for the formal classi"cation of enzymes are presented in outline. In this connection, a few enzymes that will be used as speci"c examples later in the book are introduced by name.
The signi"cance of divalent metal ions and a few coenzymes that are central to the functions of enzymes that will be discussed in later chapters are mentioned brie y. Organometallic coenzymes and cofactors are not included. The chapter on puri"cation is thorough and up-todate.
The role of enzyme assays in assessing puri"cation results is introduced early within the section on objectives without special emphasis. A section could have been devoted to this subject. The chapter includes sections on the extraction of enzymes from cells, separation methods, and the assessment of homogeneity by physical techniques. Modern separation methods such as covalent chromatography and His-tag chromatography are included, as well as modern methods of analysis for homogeneity such as mass spectrometry.
The chapter on structure includes methods for determining molecular weight, and amino acid composition is treated in signi"cant detail. Primary, secondary, tertiary and quaternary structures are de"ned and methods of determination are discussed.
Structures of amino acids and the peptide bond are presented in detail. Threedimensional structure determinations by X-ray crystallography are discussed in signi"cant detail. The structures of a number of enzymes are presented in various ways, including chain folds, active site structures, space-"lled models, multisubunit models, domain structures and so forth.
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.
