9780126437317: Organic Chemistry of Enzyme-Catalyzed Reactions, Revised Edition

"The Organic Chemistry of Enzyme-Catalyzed Reactions" is not a book on enzymes, but rather a book on the general mechanisms involved in chemical reactions involving enzymes. An enzyme is a protein molecule in a plant or animal that causes specific reactions without itself being permanently altered or destroyed. This is a revised edition of a very successful book, which appeals to both academic and industrial markets. This book: illustrates the organic mechanism associated with each enzyme-catalyzed reaction; makes the connection between organic reaction mechanisms and enzyme mechanisms; and, compiles the latest information about molecular mechanisms of enzyme reactions. Accompanied by clearly drawn structures, schemes, and figures, it includes an extensive bibliography on enzyme mechanisms covering the last 30 years, explains how enzymes can accelerate the rates of chemical reactions with high specificity, provides approaches to the design of inhibitors of enzyme-catalyzed reactions, categorizes the cofactors that are appropriate for catalyzing different classes of reactions, shows how chemical enzyme models are used for mechanistic studies, describes catalytic antibody design and mechanism and includes problem sets and solutions for each chapter. It is written in an informal and didactic style.

Review:

Praise for the First Edition "Silverman's newest contribution will serve as an outstanding text and reference on the reaction mechanisms of enzymes. ... His treatment of the topic should also appeal to a broad range of organic, medicinal, and biological chemists who desire an up-to-date and succinct overview of the field. Silverman should be congratulated ... should quickly become the standard for mechanistic studies." --JOURNAL OF THE AMERICAN CHEMICAL SOCIETY

About the Author:

Professor Richard B. Silverman received his B.S. degree in chemistry from The Pennsylvania State University in 1968 and his Ph.D. degree in organic chemistry from Harvard University in 1974 (with time off for a two-year military obligation from 1969-1971). After two years as a NIH postdoctoral fellow in the laboratory of the late Professor Robert Abeles in the Graduate Department of Biochemistry at Brandeis University, he joined the chemistry faculty at Northwestern University. In 1986, he became Professor of Chemistry and Professor of Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, and Cell Biology. In 2001, he became the Charles Deering McCormick Professor of Teaching Excellence for three years, and since 2004 he has been the John Evans Professor of Chemistry. His research can be summarized as investigations of the molecular mechanisms of action, rational design, and syntheses of potential medicinal agents acting on enzymes and receptors. His awards include DuPont Young Faculty Fellow (1976), Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellow (1981-1985), NIH Research Career Development Award (1982-1987), Fellow of the American Institute of Chemists (1985), Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (1990), Arthur C. Cope Senior Scholar Award of the American Chemical Society (2003), Alumni Fellow Award from Pennsylvania State University (2008), Medicinal Chemistry Hall of Fame of the American Chemical Society (2009), the Perkin Medal from the Society of Chemical Industry (2009), the Hall of Fame of Central High School of Philadelphia (2011), the E.B. Hershberg Award for Important Discoveries in Medicinally Active Substances from the American Chemical Society (2011), Fellow of the American Chemical Society (2011), Sato Memorial International Award of the Pharmaceutical Society of Japan (2012), Roland T. Lakey Award of Wayne State University (2013), BMS-Edward E. Smissman Award of the American Chemical Society (2013), the Centenary Prize of the Royal Society of Chemistry (2013), and the Excellence in Medicinal Chemistry Prize of the Israel Chemical Society (2014). Professor Silverman has published over 320 research and review articles, holds 49 domestic and foreign patents, and has written four books (The Organic Chemistry of Drug Design and Drug Action is translated into German and Chinese). He is the inventor of LyricaTM, a drug marketed by Pfizer for epilepsy, neuropathic pain, fibromyalgia, and spinal cord injury pain; currently, he has another CNS drug in clinical trials.
