The contents of this book are focused on the use of chemical modification to study the properties of proteins in solution. Particular emphasis has been placed on the practical laboratory aspects of this approach to the study of the relationship between structure and function in the complex class of biological heteropolymers. As a result, little emphasis is given to the individual consideration of the functional consequence of chemical modification.
1. The modification of Arginine 2. Chemical Modification of Tryptophan 3. The Modification of Tyrosine 4. The Modification of Carboxyl Groups 5. The Chemical Cross-linking of Peptide Chains 6. Affinity labelling
