Structure and Mechanism in Protein Science. A Guide to Enzyme Catalysis and Protein Folding Pages: By (author):; Alan Fersht (Cambridge). Tools. This is the second edition of this biological reference aimed at undergraduates and graduates. The book covers the structure and mechanism of enzymes. Fourteen years ago when Alan Fersht’s Enzyme Structure and Mechanism was published, the field of protein engineering was in its infancy. Since then.

Alan Fersht – Wikipedia

He elucidated the leaving-group specificity, leading to a detailed structural interpretation which showed the energetics of “strain” at the binding site. Analysis of presteady state and relaxation kinetics.

Archived from the original on 17 April His contributions have been widely recognised nationally and internationally by prizes for both chemistry and molecular biology, and by memberships of foreign academies. Since then, spectacular advances in determining biological structure, manipulating genes, engineering proteins, sequencing whole genomes, and computing have led not He currently works on mutations that affect the fersut and activity of the tumour suppressor p53 and how mutants may be “rescued” by small molecule drugs.

The full power of his methods became apparent in his seminal and far reaching contributions to the field of protein folding and stability.

Fersht has shown how binding energy can be used to enhance either specificity or rate in an enzymatic reaction, leading to a demonstration of thermodynamic limitations on mechanisms of the “induced fit” type.

Enzyme Structure and Mechanism : Alan Fersht :

By concentrating on fundamental principles and the physical and chemical processes behind them, Structure and Mechanism in Protein Science makes the basic formulas, kinetics, and thermodynamics of protein engineering easier to understand and apply. Structure and Mechanism in Protein Science: More recently Fersht has studied a more complex group of enzymes, the aminoacyl tRNA synthetases.


Fersht’s Structure and Mechanism in Struchure Science is a defining exploration of this new era, an expert depiction of the core principles of protein structure, activity, and mechanism as understood and applied today.
