Structural Genomics on Membrane Proteins provides an excellent overview on novel research in bioinformatics and modeling on membranes, as well as the latest technological developments being employed in expression, purification, and crystallography to obtain high-resolution structures on membrane proteins. This cutting-edge work also explains the difficulties facing researchers—both technical and ethical—that have slowed the process.
Structural Genomics on Membrane Proteins provides researchers with an unprecedented look at the novel technologies that will ultimately allow them to conquer the last frontier in structural biology, leading to accelerated breakthroughs in drug discovery.
“This volume informs the actual state of the investigation of membrane’s proteins … The editor has selected a good group of specialists that update the aspects of interest about the ways to follow this direction. … With this edition, researchers will be able to obtain valuable information that will allow them to advance in the knowledge of the structure of the integral proteins of the membrane, so important for the cellular’s functions.”
— Journal of Physiology and Biochemistry, Vol. 62, No. 3, September 2006
“… provides the reader with an overview of structural biology research and recent technological developments relating to membrane proteins. With contributions from more than 40 researches, this volume serves as a useful reference for background and methodologies. The various approaches for recombinant expression and production of membrane proteins in bacteria, yeast, insect and mammalian cells are reviewed. … This is a recommended reference for research laboratories involved in the study and expression of recombinant proteins.”
— Zehra Elgundi, research assistant at the Garvan Institute and a budding science writer, Australian Life Scientist
"… provides insight into the various disciplines, approaches, problems, and solutions in membrane protein research. Clearly, it is a challenge to cover all aspects of this research area, but the editor and authors have achieved a balance between detail and importance without losing the main focus. … recommended for experts in membrane protein research or structural genomics because it not only provides an excellent overview, it also offers a detailed and balanced view on the daily challenges in working with these fascinating proteins, especially from a structural genomics perspective."
