Nucleic Acids presents an up-to-date and comprehensive account of the structures and physical chemistry properties of nucleic acids, with special emphasis on biological function. With a targeted audience of 1)molecular biologists, 2)physical biochemists, and 3)physical chemists, the book has been carefully organized to reach three different audiences while requiring only introductory physical chemistry and molecular biology as prerequisites. Nucleic Acids will serve as a textbook in physical biochemistry and biophysical chemistry classes, as well as a supplemental text in courses on nucleic acid biochemistry or molecular biology, and as a personal reference for students and researchers in these fields.
Key FeaturesOrganized according to a systematic consideration of techniques used in the study of nucleic acid structure and properties.Key topics--such as protein-DNA and protein-drug complexes, conformational transitions, characterization of nucleic acids by gel and solution techniques, and behavior of supercoiled DNA--are covered in great detail as veritable mini-monographs.Heavily illustrated with diagrams, graphs, and molecular structures, including nearly 2 dozen color figures.Includes numerous figures, tables and an extensive bibliography to facilitate use as a reference volume.
