About this book


High Resolution EPR: Applications to Metalloenzymes and Metals in Medicine

Prof. Graeme Hanson, University of Queensland and Prof. Lawrence Berliner, University of Denver

Metalloproteins are involved in a variety of biologically important processes, including metal ion and oxygen transport, biosynthesis, electron transfer, biodegradation, drug metabolism, proteolysis and peptide hydrolysis, environmental oxygen, sulphur, and nitrogen cycles, and disease states. High-resolution EPR spectroscopy is crucial in determining the geometric and electronic structural characterization of the redox cofactors in metalloenzymes, which is essential for understanding their reactivity in complex biological systems.

This volume, Part I of a two-volume set, covers high-resolution EPR methods, computer simulation, density functional theory, and their application to iron proteins, nickel, and copper enzymes and metals in medicine. The following chapters, written by experts in their fields, include:

Advanced Pulse EPR Methods for the Characterization of Metalloproteins: Jeffrey Harmer, George Mitrikas, and Arthur Schweiger
