Glycomicrobiology

Overview

This book presents an authoritative and lucid summary of the major areas of glycomicrobiology. A goal of the book is to provide readable reviews of current areas of glycomicrobiology. This molecular-oriented book considers the rapidly growing field of prokaryotic glycoproteins, and the genetics of the peptide-carbohydrate links. Expert commentary on prokaryotic recognition of glycoconjugate eukaryotic receptors and eukaryotic recognition of prokaryotic receptors is a highlight of the book. The structure and ...

Overview

This book presents an authoritative and lucid summary of the major areas of glycomicrobiology. A goal of the book is to provide readable reviews of current areas of glycomicrobiology. This molecular-oriented book considers the rapidly growing field of prokaryotic glycoproteins, and the genetics of the peptide-carbohydrate links. Expert commentary on prokaryotic recognition of glycoconjugate eukaryotic receptors and eukaryotic recognition of prokaryotic receptors is a highlight of the book. The structure and function of glycoconjugates of extremophiles is presented, along with the recognition and metabolism of carbohydrate substrata by microbial enzymes. Discussion of state-of-the-art methods in the detection of microbial carbohydrates is presented. This is the first volume devoted solely to glycomicrobiology, encompassing methods, biochemistry, genetics, molecular biology, cell biology, and enzymology.

Disc. recent research re: carbohydrate-peptide linkages, ad- hesin receptors, microbial glycoconjugates; applied rsch.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'Overall the book provides an extensive review of our understanding of glycomicrobiology and reveals that the subject is still in the logarithmic phase of growth. The book will therefore be an important source of information and relevant literature references to active researchers in the field.'
The Journal of Medical Microbiology, 50:5 (2001)
'This book is of greatest use as a reference for researchers interested in the biochemistry of (mainly) surface-expressed glycosylated peptides and lipids. It is extremely comprehensively referenced '
Journal of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy, 49 (2002)
Booknews
Reviews major areas of the field of glycomicrobiology, encompassing methods, biochemistry, genetics, molecular biology, cell biology, and enzymology. Provides discussion of carbohydrate-peptide linkages in bacteria, new information on adhesin-receptor complexes involving bacterial pathogens, and a modern outlook on the role of microbial glycoconjugates in the emerging field of biotechnology. The structure and function of glycoconjugates of extremophiles is presented, along with the recognition and metabolism of carbohydrate substrata by microbial enzymes. Other topics are prokaryotic recognition of glycoconjugate eukaryotic receptors, and eukaryotic recognition of prokaryotic receptors. Doyle is affiliated with the University of Louisville.
