Introduces Groundbreaking ways for Assessing Lectin Function


Lectins and their ligands are lower than fairly a heavy microscope as a result of their capability functions to pharmacology, immunology, melanoma remedy, and agriculture. With growing to be curiosity within the glycobiology box, the physique of analysis regarding lectin roles has grown at an explosive cost, really some time past two decades. Animal Lectins: A useful View presents the main updated research of those carbohydrate-binding, and probably lifesaving, proteins in a single accomplished 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 best protein chemistry specialists and with contributions from well-recognized box experts, this ebook logically and systematically discusses either intracellular and extracellular lectin capabilities. it's a necessary springboard for destiny box study and a transparent and concise wisdom base that glycobiology, biochemistry, and immunology researchers can't have the funds for to be without.
