Ted Peters brings these diverse aspects of the proteins fascination together with a relaxed style in this definitive volume on albumin and its homologues. The huge ensuing literature has been expertly distilled into an understandable account of its binding properties, which are interpreted in the context of the three-dimensional structure, recently determined by Carter and colleagues. The heart shape and heart of the molecule is exposed in a number of elegant colour plates, andresidues involved in binding are clearly displayed in a reconfiguration of the familiar disulphide-bonded model. The student of molecular genetics and protein evolution will find a clear interpretation of the relationships. There is also an up-to-the minute account of human albumin mutations.
