Rapid-Equilibrium Enzyme Kinetics helps readers emphasize the estimation of kinetic parameters with the minimum number of velocity measurements, thereby reducing the amount of laboratory work necessary, and allowing more time for the consideration of complicated mechanisms. The book systematically progresses through six levels of understanding the enzyme-catalyzed reaction, and includes a CD-ROM so that the reader may use the programs in the book to input their own experimental data.
Robert A. Alberty received a BS in 1943 from the University of Nebraska and a PhD from the University of Wisconsin in 1947. He is the author of Thermodynamics of Biochemical Reactions in 2003 and Biochemical Thermodynamics in 2006, both from Wiley. In 2004, he coauthored Physical Chemistry, Fourth Edition with Robert J. Silbey and Moungi G. Bawendi.
