Description

Volume 39: Molybdenum and Tungsten: Their Roles in Biological Processes is devoted soley to the vital research area on molybdenum and tungsten and their role in biology. It offers a comprehensive and timely account of this fascinating topic by 40 distinguished international authorities. Topics include: transport, homeostasis, regulation and binding of molybdate and tungstate to proteins, crystallographic characterization, coordination of complexes, and biosynthesis.

Table of Contents

The biogeochemistry of molybdenum and tungsten; transport, homeostasis, regulation and binding of molybdate and tungstate to proteins; molybdenum nitrogenases - a crystallographic and mechanistic view; chemical dinitrogen fixation by molybdenum and tungsten complexes - insights from co-ordination chemistry; biosynthesis of nitrogenase iron-molybdenum-cofactor from Azotobacter Vinelandii; molybdenum enzymes containing the pyranopterin cofactor - an overview; the molybdenum and tungsten cofactors - a crystallographic view; models for the pyranopterin-containing molybdenum and tungsten cofactors; biosynthesis and molecular biology of the molybdenum cofactor (moco); molybdenum in nitrate reductase and nitrate oxidoreductase.
