Book: The Biochemistry of Inorganic Polyphosphates
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
This book is devoted to the current problems of biochemistry of inorganic polyphosphates
(PolyPs), linear polymers of orthophosphoric acid, which are important regulatory biopolymers
widespread in living organisms. The great progress in the field of PolyP biochemistry
over the last 15 to 20 years has contributed much to the appearance of this second edition.
Now in a second edition, Biochemistry of Inorganic Polyphosphates fills the need for an exhaustive resource on inorganic polyphosphate metabolism. The authors 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
