Edited Books

Recent developments in the field of protein engineering have seen an emergence of genetically engineered fusion molecules derived from antibodies—often used as important and beneficial molecular tools in research. Antibody Fusion Proteins provides essential information on several types of these antibody fusion proteins. The book examines the construction, properties, applications, and problems associated with specific types of fusion molecules used in clinical and research medicine.
