Introduces Groundbreaking ways for Assessing Lectin Function


Lectins and their ligands are below particularly a heavy microscope because of their capability purposes to pharmacology, immunology, melanoma treatment, and agriculture. With turning out to be curiosity within the glycobiology box, the physique of analysis regarding lectin roles has grown at an explosive price, really some time past twenty years. Animal Lectins: A sensible View presents the main up to date research of those carbohydrate-binding, and probably lifesaving, proteins in a single entire quantity.



This standard-setting source provides 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 information of 2 prime protein chemistry specialists and with contributions from well-recognized box experts, this ebook logically and systematically discusses either intracellular and extracellular lectin services. it's an important springboard for destiny box study and a transparent and concise wisdom base that glycobiology, biochemistry, and immunology researchers can't manage to pay for to be without.
