Description

Written by internationally known European and American scientists, these volumes systematically present many topics in the elastin and elastases fields. Volume I explains elastin, its biosynthesis, physicochemical properties, and alteration in a variety of pathologies and with aging. Volume II describes elastases, their physiological and pathological roles and their control by natural and synthetic inhibitors. Filled with illustrations and figures, these volumes will benefit researchers, physicians, and industrial scientists.
