Introduces Groundbreaking techniques for Assessing Lectin Function
Lectins and their ligands are lower than particularly a heavy microscope because of their strength purposes to pharmacology, immunology, melanoma treatment, and agriculture. With becoming curiosity within the glycobiology box, the physique of analysis on the topic of lectin roles has grown at an explosive expense, quite long ago two decades. Animal Lectins: A useful View presents the main up to date research of those carbohydrate-binding, and almost certainly 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
- Cell-cell interactions and signaling
Describes the Structural foundation of Protein-Carbohydrate Interactions
Under the editorial assistance of 2 top protein chemistry specialists and with contributions from well-recognized box professionals, this booklet logically and systematically discusses either intracellular and extracellular lectin features. it's 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.
