Galectins
edited by
Anatole A. Klyosov

Galectins is the comprehensive guide to the current understanding of galectins and their promising potential in drug design.

This is the first book focusing on galectins. It was inspired by topics discussed at the symposium "Galectins: Structures, Functions, and Therapeutic Targets" that was a part of the 234th American Chemical Society meeting in 2007.

Galectins includes:

  • An overview of early galectin research
  • An explanation of the nature of galectins
  • A discussion of the structure and functions of galectins, their ligand specificity and molecular mechanisms of action, and the localization of galectins in the cell
  • An exploration of the roles galectins play in tumor growth and cancer, fibrosis, inflammation, and immunity
  • A discussion of the effect of galectins on cell migration, angiogenesis, and chemoresistance
  • An introduction to new approaches to designing galectin inhibitors
