By Irvin E. Liener,Nathan Sharon,Irvin Liener

The Lectins: homes, capabilities, and purposes in Biology and medication is a 10-chapter textual content that bargains with the advances in learn reports at the homes, capabilities, and functions of lectins in biology and drugs.
The first chapters give some thought to the ancient improvement, physicochemical houses, isolation, and noteworthy specificity towards sugars of lectins. those subject matters are through a dialogue at the molecular elements of protein evolution, with a specific emphasis on lectins, which offer an outstanding instance of a relatives of homologous proteins. the next chapters discover the varied organic actions of lectins and the way those homes are applied for the isolation and characterization of carbohydrate-containing compounds in resolution and on cells. A bankruptcy makes a speciality of the services of lectins of their traditional milieu.
This textual content extra covers the significance of lectins in nonplant platforms as exemplified through lectins that take place in vertebrates, slime molds, and micro organism. The final bankruptcy highlights the dietary importance of the prevalence of lectins in plant meals resembling legumes.
This e-book is a perfect resource for natural chemists, protein researchers, and employees within the fields of biology and medicine.
