Advances in Protein Chemistry

Article metrics


VOLUME 4 of "Advances in Protein Chemistry", like previous numbers in the same series, forms a welcome addition to works of reference in a continuously expanding field of research. Reviews are not written for experts ; but they should act as guidance to workers in allied fields and should stimulate interest in the subject under discussion. Such articles should be readable and interesting without recourse to references ; the latter should, of course, be available for the more specialized reader, but should not be required for an understanding of the text. Most of the articles in the volume under discussion meet these criteria, though, of course, some subjects, such as "The Plasma Proteins in Disease", do necessarily involve the enumeration of a very large number of references to experimental observations. The present volume covers a wide range of subjects, which is indicative of the variety of problems with which workers in the field of protein research are confronted.
