High-Pressure Biochemistry: A Survey

  • K. Heremans

Abstract

Although the use of high pressure in biological systems has a long history, the literature is not voluminous. The older literature is mainly concerned with the irreversible destruction of biological systems, especially proteins. In recent years it has become clear that high pressure as well as low pressure are valuable tools for studying biochemical systems.
