Introduces Groundbreaking ways for Assessing Lectin Function


Lectins and their ligands are less than relatively a heavy microscope as a result of their power purposes to pharmacology, immunology, melanoma remedy, and agriculture. With growing to be curiosity within the glycobiology box, the physique of analysis on the topic of lectin roles has grown at an explosive price, quite some time past two decades. Animal Lectins: A useful View presents the main up to date research of those carbohydrate-binding, and possibly lifesaving, proteins in a single finished 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 assistance of 2 prime protein chemistry specialists and with contributions from well-recognized box specialists, this publication logically and systematically discusses either intracellular and extracellular lectin services. it really is an important 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.
