About this book
Glycosaminoglycans: Chemistry and Biology emphasizes several areas of glycosaminoglycan research especially analysis and application of GAGs using a variety of approaches. Chapters focus on chemical and enzymatic synthesis of GAGs for therapeutic purposes; biophysical and biochemical methods for studying GAG-protein interactions; molecular approaches for modulating and defining GAG biosynthesis; informatics approaches for deciphering GAG code; computational approaches for establishing specific and/or non-specific interactions and genetic and biochemical tools for manipulating/visualizing glycosaminoglycan expression and studying their functions in a variety of model organisms. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and key tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.
Authoritative and practical, Glycosaminoglycans: Chemistry and Biology serves as a valuable manual for cutting edge methodologies and practical tips to overcome any obstacles with experimentation pertaining to chemistry and biology of glycosaminoglycans.
