Biology and Chemistry of Eucaryotic Cell Surfaces contains the proceedings of the Miami Winter Symposia, held on January 14- 15, 1974 and organized by the Department of Biochemistry, University of Miami School of Medicine, in Miami, Florida. Organized into 27 chapters, separating the manuscripts presented at the symposium, this book presents the stochastic studies on cell surface stickiness and the adhesion and aggregation of blood platelets. This text also explains the cell-contact and transformation-induced changes in the dynamic organization of normal and neoplastic cell plasma membranes and their role in lectin-mediated toxicity toward tumor cells. It also looks into the chemical components of surface membranes related to biological properties, carbohydrate antigens of cell surfaces, and molecular orientation of erythrocyte membrane glycoproteins. Some other chapters discuss the cell envelope glycoprotein biosynthesis in fungi, cellular lectin receptors, and topographical alterations of the fat cell surface membrane elicited by concanavalin A. Immunochemical evidence for putrescine sites on the membrane of mammalian cells, as well as the fractionation and biosynthesis of membrane components in erythroid cells, are also described.
