Description

The Glycoconjugates: Mammalian Glycoproteins, Glycolipids, and Proteoglycans Volume II is a collaboration of different experts in the field of molecular biology on the subject of glycoconjugates.

The text of the second volume covers topics such as the structure and biosynthesis of connective tissue proteoglycans, glycoproteins, and glycolipids; and glycoprotein and glycolipid catabolism and degradation. It also discusses the structure, composition, and isolation of surface membranes; and lectins – its immunological aspects and its use in the study of mammalian glycoprotein.

The book is recommended for molecular biologists, organic chemists, and biochemists who would like to know more about glycolipids and glycoproteins and their applications.
