BeschreibungPart I covers modern advances in the determination of
glycoprotein structure and in the biosynthesis of mammalian,
bacterial, yeast, plant and insect glycoproteins. There are also
two chapters on functional aspects (glycoprotein hormones and
The content of the volume is very comprehensive in that, most
contributors have focussed on discussing, in depth, the wealth
of most recent advances in their field, and referring to previous
reviews of older work for background information. This method can
effectively produce a very wide subject coverage in a smaller
number of chapters/volumes. The volume is an important
information source for all glycobiologist researchers (senior
investigators, post-doctoral fellows and graduate students), and
as a good, comprehensive, reference text for scientists working in
the life sciences.
