The study of enzymes can properly be included as one facet in almost any book that deals with plant or animal life. It is, therefore, encountered in organic and physical chemistry, clinical medicine, plant physiology, bacteriology, biology, biochemistry, and many other sciences. Much of the investigative material in the rapidly expanding field of enzyme chemistry is somewhat isolated, and its full significance, therefore, is frequently not completely comprehended. This book is an outgrowth of a course in enzyme chemistry which the author taught to a group of investigators with varied interests. For this reason, it contains a different organization than is usually found in the many excellent monographs on enzymes that are available. The author has combined in various chapters those enzymes which are involved in certain metabolic sequences, showing the interrelationships and mechanisms used and the multiplicity of factors involved in a particular sequence.
