InTech, 2012. — 444 p.Chemical biology, a scientific discipline connecting the fields of chemistry and biology, refers to the application of chemical techniques and tools, synthetic chemical compounds, to the study and manipulation of biological systems. Chemical biology utilizes chemical principles to modulate systems to either investigate the underlying biology or create new function. The research area of chemical biologists is very close to that of cell biology and pharmacology.This book aims to provide a brief overview on chemistry and biology of the biomolecules, while focusing on connection of them in chemical biology. The first section opens up this book with an overview of protein purification and enzymology by introducing some important concepts. The second section addresses properties and effects of vitamins and antioxidants. The third section deals with biotransformation and gene delivery, quite popular areas. The last two sections combine signaling, regulation and organization.The collection of contributions from outstanding scientists and experts from different countries presents detailed information about different topics and provides a general overview about the current issues of chemical biology. The book covers a wide range of current issues, reflecting on actual problems and demonstrating the complexity of the chemical-biological interactions. I would like to tell my gratefulness to the authors around the world for their excellent contributions to the book and hope that the book will enhance the knowledge of scientists in the complexities of chemical and biological approaches; it will stimulate both professionals and students to dedicate part of their future research in understanding relevant mechanisms and applications of chemical biology.
