  • About this book

  • Provides a snapshot of the key concepts, methodology and applications of multiheme cyctochromes
  • Outlines the great potential for multiheme cytochromes in bioremediation and bioenergy applications
  • Provides readers with an overview of the latest research in multiheme cytochromes in the last few years
Multiheme Cytochromes introduces the structural and functional characterization of this important group of proteins. The content of each chapter is aimed at the non-specialist so that key concepts, methodologies and applications can be presented in a "snapshot" style volume. Multiheme cytochromes are ever more important now that it is possible to obtain genome sequences of microorganisms which have major biotechnological and environmental implications. There is a tremendous profusion of multiheme cytochromes which have great potential as targets for bioremediation and bioenergy applications.
