Carbohydrate Binding Modules : Functions & Applications Paperback / softback
Carbohydrates play an important role in many biological and biochemical processes, including the fertilisation, cell differentiation and maturation, protein folding and degradation.
Carbohydrates are also involved in a variety of recognition events, such as cell-cell and cell-matrix interactions.
Many of these are immunologically relevant processes, namely inflammation host-pathogen interactions, immune response and health disorders, such as arthritis, Alzheimer's disease, among others.
Carbohydrate-active enzymes(CAZymes) play key roles in glycobiology.
They are involved in the synthesis and degradation of complex carbohydrates and glyco-conjugates.
