Cell Surface and Extracellular Glycoconjugates: Structure and Function
Academic Press, Dec 2, 2012 - Science - 314 pages
This book serves as a much-needed guide for new investigators in the field of glycobiology as well as researchers in other disciplines attempting to define the role of glycoconjugates in their biological systems. Cell Surface and Extracellular Glycoconjugates: Structure and Function describes the determination of structure and function of glycoconjugates that occur on the cell surface and in molecules involved in cell-matrix interactions. The broad scope of thebook covers basic background and technical information in this rapidly expanding field. The text is specifically designed to inform researchers in diverse disciplines of the approaches and resources that can be employed to address problems in glycoconjugate biology.
Includes coverage of the:
* Structure of cell surface carbohydrates
* Biosynthesis of glycoproteins
* Biological signals associated with glycoproteins
* Diversity of glycoprotein structure
