Recognition of carbohydrates in biological systems has been gaining more and more attention in recent years. Although methodology for studying recognition has been developing, there is no volume that covers the wide area of methodology of carbohydrate recognition. This volume, Recognition of Carbohydrates in Biological Systems, Part A: General Procedures, and its companion, Volume 363, present state-of-the-art methodologies, as well as the most recent biological observations in this area.
Covers the isolation/synthesis of substances used in studying interactions involving carbohydrates
Discussed the methodology for measuring such interactions
Biological roles for such interactions are also covered
