Glycobiology Resource from C.H.I.P.S.

Glycoconjugates
Composition, Structure
and Function

edited by Howard J. Allen and Edward C. Kisailus


This book highlights and speculates on design-order and structure-function correlates of glycoconjugates-integrating structural and biosynthetic data with the functional role of glycoconjugates.

Features

  • Discusses current strategies to elucidating oligosaccharide structures and mechanisms of biosynthesis and turnover
  • Presents the characteristics of macromolecules that interact with glycoconjugates
  • Illustrates the specificity of recognition which cells have developed while using a relatively small array of monosaccharides
  • Covers classical methodology of structural and biosynthetic analysis as well as new research in molecular biology of glycoconjugates
  • Provides a guide to carbohydrate and glycoconjugate nomenclature
  • Explores the role of model compounds in glycoconjugate chemistry and function
  • And more!
