General description

This second edition has been thoroughly updated to take into account advances in the last 10 years in both the increased understanding of the role of peptidases in many critical cellular processes, e.g. apoptosis, as well as their use as enzymatic tools in such diverse areas as proteomics, protein sequencing, peptide synthesis and protein structure studies. Some topics covered are: inhibition and prevention of unwanted proteolytic activity; characterizing natural inhibitors; proteolytic enzymes in peptide mapping and primary structure elucidation by mass spectrometry and Edman sequencing; limited proteolysis as a structural probe.
