By Kuberan Balagurunathan, Hiroshi Nakato, Umesh R. Desai

Glycosaminoglycans: Chemistry and Biology emphasizes a number of components of glycosaminoglycan examine in particular research and alertness of GAGs utilizing numerous ways. Chapters concentrate on chemical and enzymatic synthesis of GAGs for healing reasons; biophysical and biochemical equipment for learning GAG-protein interactions; molecular ways for modulating and defining GAG biosynthesis; informatics techniques for decoding GAG code; computational ways for constructing particular and/or non-specific interactions and genetic and biochemical instruments for manipulating/visualizing glycosaminoglycan expression and learning their features in quite a few version organisms. Written within the hugely winning Methods in Molecular Biology series layout, chapters comprise introductions to their respective themes, lists of the mandatory fabrics and reagents, step by step, easily reproducible laboratory protocols and key tips about troubleshooting and fending off identified pitfalls.

Authoritative and functional, Glycosaminoglycans: Chemistry and Biology serves as a worthy handbook for leading edge methodologies and functional the right way to conquer any stumbling blocks with experimentation relating chemistry and biology of glycosaminoglycans.
