The chapters on the control of enzyme activity and on the kinetics of multi-enzyme systems are particularly notable. Haldane More about Buchner on another series of pages.

He has served on the editorial boards of several journals. As with the previous editions, he presents here steady-state kinetics and fast reactions, supplementing each chapter with problems and solutions. Since then he has continued to develop his ideas on the subject through several publication stages culminating in this third edition of Fundamentals of Enzyme Kinetics which is a truly remarkable book.

For the first time, this edition features a companion website providing all figures in colour www. With developments in computer modelling of metabolic pathways, the need for understanding the kinetic principles applicable to such systems becomes crucial.

The study of enzyme kinetics seems relatively unfashionable nowadays. A hypertext version of this chapter can be consulted on the web.

In the meantime this is a marvellous book for enzymologists. Add in a bit on reversible inhibition plus something on the models developed to explain allosteric properties and that unfortunately, is about it for the typical BSc student.


Athel Cornish-Bowden first clrnish Principles of Enzyme Kinetics in and it received a very welcome response from enzyme biochemists at the time. The topic usually assumed a significant position in most biochemistry courses but now seems to have been downsized to the fairly basic level of providing students with knowledge of the application of the Michaelis—Menten mechanism to enzyme catalysis.

He has authored more than scientific publications, including several books as author and as editor. With respect to the contents of the book, the expected standard topics of effects of substrate concentration, of inhibitors, pH etc.

All should obtain a copy. More about Michaelis and Menten on another page.

Fundamentals of Enzyme Kinetics (2nd edition)

It may well be that this area may revitalize interest in enzyme kinetics and persuade biochemists that the topic may be able to xornish a lot of information to their experiments on gene knockout or over-expression. Books on kinetics inevitably contain lots of algebraic equations that readers find daunting at first sight, but Cornish-Bowden writes well and there is so much more here to interest, and inform, the reader than mere equations and dry mathematics.

Henrik Kacser more complete information about his career, and an annotated bibliography of his kinetisc, may be found elsewhere on this site. Multi-enzyme complexes and cooperativity are therefore treated in more detail than in any other textbook on the market. The respected and well known author is one of the most experienced researchers into the topic and writes with outstanding style and didactic clarity.

Fundamentals of Enzyme Kinetics

He studied at the University of Oxford, and after post-doctoral research at the University of California, Berkeley, he spent the early part of his career at the University of Birmingham as Lecturer and later Senior Lecturer in the Department of Biochemistry. Description Now in its fourth edition, this textbook is one of the few titles worldwide to cover enzyme kinetics in its entire scope and the cornishh one to include its implications for bioinformatics and systems biology.

At one time the number of papers published in the literature that included some enzyme kinetic work as a main focus was very large and this relative importance was reflected in the undergraduate biochemistry syllabus. It is a book for postgraduates, researchers and teachers probably, rather than for undergraduates, but with appropriate direction from tutors, undergraduates will be all the better for making use of it. Elizabeth Fundamentalx more bowven about her can be found on another page.
