Introduces Groundbreaking techniques for Assessing Lectin Function


Lectins and their ligands are less than particularly a heavy microscope because of their power purposes to pharmacology, immunology, melanoma treatment, and agriculture. With transforming into curiosity within the glycobiology box, the physique of study with regards to lectin roles has grown at an explosive price, rather some time past twenty years. Animal Lectins: A practical View presents the main up to date research of those carbohydrate-binding, and in all likelihood lifesaving, proteins in a single accomplished quantity.



This standard-setting source offers new insights into the organic roles of such a lot animal lectins, together with their functionality in an infection prevention via innate immunity. It additionally discusses such lectin behaviors as:





  • Glycoprotein folding



  • Sorting and targeting



  • Cell adhesion



  • Embryogenesis



  • Cell-cell interactions and signaling



Describes the Structural foundation of Protein-Carbohydrate Interactions


Under the editorial tips of 2 prime protein chemistry specialists and with contributions from well-recognized box professionals, this ebook logically and systematically discusses either intracellular and extracellular lectin features. it truly is a vital springboard for destiny box examine and a transparent and concise wisdom base that glycobiology, biochemistry, and immunology researchers can't manage to pay for to be without.
