Summary note
  • "Glycobiology is now taking a central role in our understanding of cell function. This book is a comprehensive update of recent progress in the area, with emphasis on the structure, biosynthesis and function of carbohydrates in development and disease. Topics covered include: cell-type specific expression of cell surface carbohydrates, the roles of cell surface carbohydrates in leukocyte-endothelium interaction, O-GlcNAc glycoproteins in the nucleus and cytoplasm, the roles of sphingolipids and glycosphingolipids in membranes, and transgenic approaches to the analysis of carbohydrate function."
  • "Molecular and Cellular Glycobiology also describes in detail our current knowledge of diseases caused by anomalies of carbohydrate biosynthesis and approaches to develop therapeutic agents based on carbohydrates." "Molecular and Cellular Glycobiology covers recent developments in this important field in a comprehensive yet focused manner. It will be of major interest to all researchers who study carbohydrates or biological molecules modified by glycosylation."--Jacket.
