About this book


Selenium has a long history of association with human health and disease. This essential trace element exerts its important biological role in selenoproteins. "Selenoproteins and Mimics" presents the latest developments in selenoproteins, their functional imitation by biomimetic chemistry and biology, and their relationship with human health and diseases. This book provides both the basic biology and biochemistry knowledge of selenoproteins, and sophisticated approaches for the development of new selenoprotein mimics. It's a valuable reference for researchers in biological technology, chemical syntheses, and medicine design.

Junqiu Liu is a professor at the State Key Lab of Supramolecular Structure and Materials, Jilin University, China.
