Introduces Groundbreaking techniques for Assessing Lectin Function

Lectins and their ligands are lower than fairly a heavy microscope as a result of their power functions to pharmacology, immunology, melanoma remedy, and agriculture. With turning out to be curiosity within the glycobiology box, the physique of analysis relating to lectin roles has grown at an explosive price, quite long ago two decades. Animal Lectins: A sensible View presents the main up to date research of those carbohydrate-binding, and most likely lifesaving, proteins in a single complete quantity.

This standard-setting source offers new insights into the organic roles of so much 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 counsel of 2 major protein chemistry specialists and with contributions from well-recognized box experts, this publication logically and systematically discusses either intracellular and extracellular lectin capabilities. it really is a necessary springboard for destiny box examine and a transparent and concise wisdom base that glycobiology, biochemistry, and immunology researchers can't find the money for to be without.
