By Peter Grunwald

Carbohydrates have lengthy been ignored via the medical group as a result of their complicated constitution and a scarcity of appropriate experimental tools for constitution selection. This ebook offers an summary of the constitution, functionality, and alertness of carbohydrate-modifying biocatalysts. It explores glycoconjugates and carbohydrate-modifying enzymes and the foremost roles they play in organic tactics akin to popularity, sign transduction, and immune responses. It discusses learn actions in glycoscience, together with the advance of a number of new prescribed drugs to regard malaria, melanoma, and different diseases.
