Enzyme Regulation and Mechanism of Action: Proceedings of the FEBS Special Meeting on Enzymes, Cavtat, Dubrovnik, 1979

326 pages7 hours


Enzyme Regulation and Mechanism of Action contains the proceedings of the Federation of European Biochemical Societies' Special Meeting on Enzymes held in Dubrovnik, Croatia in 1979. The meeting provided a forum for reviewing advances in understanding the regulation and mechanism of action of enzymes. The discussions are organized around three themes: regulation of enzyme activity; the role of enzymes in the synthesis of nucleic acids and proteins; and proteolytic enzymes.

Comprised of 33 chapters, this volume begins with an analysis of partial amino acid sequence of rabbit liver fructose 1,6-bisphophatase and sites of cleavage by proteinases. The reader is then introduced to physiological inactivation of enzymes in yeasts; structure and functions of protein kinases; and control points in the citric acid cycle. Subsequent chapters focus on ligand binding properties and subunit interactions in yeast alcohol dehydrogenase; the role of water in the acceleration of an enzymatic reaction; DNA polymerases of human normal and leukemic cells; and the phylogenetic and developmental aspects of gastric proteinases and their zymogens.

This book is intended for enzymologists.
