This new book is a monograph on the biochemistry of most proteins and all the amino acids. It consists of a compilation of 13 chapters contributed by 18 experts, including the editor, and summarizes early and recent developments in this field as an aid to evaluation of the properties and functions of proteins by students and investigators. Chemical and physical methods employed for the determination of the characteristics of proteins receive the major emphasis. The book will not appeal to many practicing physicians, but the sections on the nutritional, metabolic, osmotic and immunologic aspects of proteins will be of interest to clinicians. The proteins and protein products of significance in medicine include plasma proteins, hormones, enzymes and certain antibiotics and viruses. Enzymes are purposely not considered because of lack of space that would be required to cover them adequately. Each chapter is concluded with a comprehensive bibliography of numbered references
