This book follows the style of the previous volumes of the series. Various authorities discuss and evaluate the advances that have been made in special branches of enzymology or in some closely allied field in which the author has been active. The nine chapters in this volume include a status report on starch chemistry and the enzymes involved in starch degradation and synthesis, the hydrolysis and synthesis of acetylcholine, oxidation reduction in chloroplasts, carbon dioxide fixation by autotrophs and heterotrophes, enzyme substrate compounds, peptidase specificity, biological methylation by molds, and the reaction of borates with substances of biological interest. Each chapter contains appropriate references, and the volume contains an author and subject index. A cumulative index is also included, which lists the authors and subjects of this and the previous volumes.
