Product Description


In this new edition of Fundamentals of Enzyme Kinetics all of the text has been thoroughly revised to explain concepts even more clearly, some of the material is reorganized into a more logical sequence, and there are many additions throughout the book. In particular, the important topic of irreversible inhibition is now covered in more detail than it was in previous editions, and there is a fuller discussion of methods for studying fast reactions. A novel feature is the inclusion of brief biographical sketches of ten of the scientists who developed our understanding and knowledge of enzyme catalysis. There are numerous new bibliographical references to take account of developments over recent years. There is no pretence of an encyclopaedic approach, but instead the emphasis is on the principles of enzyme kinetics, and especially on explaining these principles as simply and accurately as possible, so that readers will be well equipped to take the subject as far as they need.

Head-and-shoulders above the rest 23 Sep 2006
By Daniel A. Beard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The third edition of Cornish-Bowden's text provides a cogent exposition of the fundamentals of mathematical modeling and analysis of enzyme kinetics. With a focus on developing the basic principles that are applied in the field and development of instructive examples, this is a wonderful book for teaching or self-study. The text is clear and easily understood while remaining mainly self-contained in terms of necessary mathematical and physical concepts. In addition, it includes discussions on the historical development of key concepts, with several short bios of important figures such as Jacques Monod and Maud Menten. In sum, this book stands above others in the field in that it not only provides students and newcomers with the necessary background to assimilate and apply current research in the field, but also provides an interesting historical framework and examines the phylogeny of certain important equations and concepts. The result is a book that is a pleasure to read and learn from.
