Radical-Mediated Protein Oxidation by Michael J. Davies
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Protein oxidation by free radicals is thought to play a major role in many oxidative processes within cells, and is implicated in human disease, carcinogenesis, and ageing. This unique and comprehensive volume brings together up-to-date information on the oxidation of amino acids, peptides, and proteins by free radicals and discusses the roles of such processes in biological systems. Topics include: the chemistry of amino acid and protein oxidation; the biochemical consequences of these reactions; the role of protein oxidation in normal physiology; the potential importance of protein oxidation in human health - including ageing, heart disease, cancer, inflammation and neurodegenerative diseases - and the possible prevention of such processes by antioxidants and other protective strategies.
