This book addresses two different aspects on metalloproteins in unison. It reviews the development of theoretical and computational methods for metalloprotein simulation with specific examples. The authors also present some of the most intriguing and important experimental results on metalloprotein systems. Although a connection can be made between these two aspects of the research, the authors do not do so explicitly. Rather, they provide the platform required to ignite further collaboration between experimentalists and theoreticians.
A collection of works from top researchers in this field, the text presents diverse subjects that comprehensively reflect the current state of metalloprotein research. With these advances in structural information, theory and computation are starting to play a more significant role, particularly in identifying the reaction mechanism. The book summarizes some of the recent progress in both experiments and theory/computation showing the synergy that is now developing.
