About The Author

Alexei V. Finkelstein

Alexei V. Finkelstein

Dr. Alexei V. Finkelstein is the Head of the Laboratory of Protein Physics at the Institute of Protein Research, Russian Academy of Sciences. He is also a Full Professor in Biophysics at the Pushchino Department of the Lomonosov Moscow State University. He won the National Prize of Russia in Science in 1999 and is a Howard Hughes Medical Institute International Research Scholar. He is the author of about 150 papers on protein physics.

Oleg Ptitsyn

Oleg Ptitsyn

Dr. Oleg B. Ptitsyn (deceased 1999) was the Head of Protein Physics Laboratory at the Institute of Protein Research, Russian Academy of Sciences and a Visiting Scientist at the Laboratory of Experimental and Computational Biology, Molecular Structure Section, National Cancer Institute, USA. He was also a member of the European Academy of Sciences and winner of the National Prize of Russia in Science (1999). He authored about two hundred and fifty papers on protein physics and polymer. Their laboratory is one of the most distinguished in the world for its work in protein physics. It is one of the few laboratories outside the USA to receive support from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.

Protein Physics: A Course of Lectures (Soft Condensed Matter, Complex Fluids and Biomaterials) – 2nd edition covers the most general problems of folding, protein structure, and function. It describes key experimental facts and introduces theories and concepts, dealing with membrane, fibrous, and water-soluble globular proteins, in both their native and denatured states.

The etextbook systematically presents and summarizes the results of several decades of worldwide fundamental research on protein physics, folding, structure, and describing many physical models that help readers make estimates and predictions of physical processes that occur in proteins.

New to this revised edition is the inclusion of novel information on amyloid aggregation, natively disordered proteins, protein folding in vivo, misfolding, chameleon proteins, protein motors, advances in protein engineering & design, and advances in the modeling of protein folding.

Further, the ebook provides problems with solutions, many updated and new references, and physical and mathematical appendices. In addition, new figures (including stereo drawings, with a special appendix showing how to use them) are added, making this an ideal resource for graduate and advanced undergraduate college students and researchers in academia in the fields of physics, biotechnology, biochemistry, biophysics, biologists, and chemistry.

  • Written by the world’s top expert in the field
  • Fully revised and expanded new edition based on the latest research developments in protein physics
  • Deals with membrane, fibrous, and water-soluble globular proteins, in both their native and denatured states
  • Summarizes, in a systematic form, the results of several decades of worldwide fundamental research on protein physics and their structure and folding
  • Examines experimental data on protein structure in the post-genome era
