La Biblioteca de Biología ha recibido tres libros dedicados al estudio de las proteínas:
Introduction to Protein Science: Architecture, Function, and Genomics
Designed for students in biology, biochemistry, and biomedicine, Introduction to Protein Science, Second Edition, provides a wide-ranging introduction to the contemporary study of proteins in health and disease. The text describes basic principles of protein structure and methods for studying them, illustrates the wide variety of functions that proteins have, and shows how their structures and functions are closely linked.
Introduction to Protein Science, Second Edition, relates the study of proteins to the context of modern high-throughput data streams of genomics and proteomics. It also provides a balanced treatment of the relationship between computational and experimental methods. The text is enhanced by marginal notes, exercises, problems, and “weblems” that develop students’ database and computational server skills. An updated and expanded Companion Website offers resources for students and instructors.

How does the chemical description of a protein relate to its three-dimensional structure? How does the three-dimensional structure relate to the machinery that brings about a chemical reaction? How does the sequence of a gene encode not only the sequence of a protein but, more importantly, the architecture and function of that protein?
Protein Structure and Function provides a clear and critical survey of our current understanding of the structure and function of proteins to answer questions such as these. Opening with a consideration of the link between protein sequence and structure, it goes on to explore the structural basis of protein function and how this function is controlled. Finally, it examines a range of case studies that illuminate the range of roles performed by proteins, and the diverse structures these proteins exhibit.
Protein Structure and Function combines articulate prose with striking full colour illustrations, while the unique Primers in Biology modular structure integrates text, illustrations, definitions, and literature references for each topic into one double-page spread, bringing to the student’s fingertips all the tools that they need to master that topic.

How Proteins Work is an up-to-date and authoritative account of protein function in living systems, explained within the governing parameters of physics, chemistry, and evolution. This text will enable advanced undergraduate students in biochemistry and biophysics to understand the relationships among protein function, structure, and dynamics. It will also serve as a valuable resource for graduate students and researchers looking for a reference on the fundamentals underlying protein function.
By providing an integrated view of proteins at both a cellular and systemic level, this textbook shows how evolution drives proteins to adopt domain structures that combine to achieve biological outcomes. The association of proteins into dimers, molecular machines, and multi-enzymatic complexes enables them to achieve catalytic and functional efficiency.
