Author : I. S. Kulaev, V. M. Vagabov, T. V. Kulakovskaya(auth.)
Description:Now in a second edition, Biochemistry of Inorganic Polyphosphates fills the need for an exhaustive resource on inorganic polyphosphate metabolism. Theauthors describe the structure and properties of these compounds and presents a comparative analysis of the newest and traditional methods of their extraction from cells. Distribution of polyphosphates in organisms, their localization in cells and tissues is also described. Comprehensive presentation of inorganic polyphosphate metabolism Follows polyphosphates in cells of organisms from different stages of evolution Presents methods for the analysis and study of polyP-dependent enzymes Comprehensive information on genetics, metabolism and biotechnology of polyphosphates Textbook and reference work on all aspects of polyphosphates Content: Chapter 1 The Chemical Structures and Properties of Condensed Inorganic Phosphates (pages 313): Chapter 2 Methods of Polyphosphate Assay in Biological Materials (pages 1535): Chapter 3 The Occurrence of Polyphosphates in Living Organisms (pages 3744): Chapter 4 The Forms in Which Polyphosphates are Present in Cells (pages 4551): Chapter 5 Localization of Polyphosphates in Cells of Prokaryotes and Eukaryotes (pages 5363): Chapter 6 Enzymes of Polyphosphate Biosynthesis and Degradation (pages 6589): Chapter 7 The Functions of Polyphosphates and Polyphosphate?
