Glycosyltransferases (GTs) are crucial for the biosynthesis of advanced glycoconjugates and are strong instruments to check the services of advanced glycans in overall healthiness, improvement and sickness. advanced glycoconjugates, resembling glycoproteins, proteoglycans and glycolipids, are assembled via GTs which synthesize particular linkages among sugars or sugars and protein. this is often not like the non-specific or much less particular chemical glycation reactions, transglycosylation and opposite glycosylation reactions. Glycosyltransferases: tools and Protocols features a wide selection of reviews, tools and protocols which shape an effective foundation for investigations of the function and mechanisms, biology and pathology related to GTs. Written within the profitable Methods in Molecular Biology™ sequence layout, chapters contain introductions to their respective themes, lists of the required fabrics and reagents, step by step, effortlessly reproducible protocols, and notes on troubleshooting and warding off recognized pitfalls.

Authoritative and simply obtainable, Glycosyltransferases: tools and Protocols is a crucial contribution to glycobiology and glycopathology, and to functions of those enzymes in biotechnology and drug improvement. it is going to end up important to scholars, postdoctoral fellows, and senior scientists sporting on examine of GTs that has been intensified over the past years.
