Bound Carbohydrates in Nature (Lezioni Lincee) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Bound carbohydrates are an important and fascinating topic in biochemical and cancer research. Based on a series of invited lectures, this book focuses on the special role that bound carbohydrates play in nature and reflect the author's distinguished career in biochemical research. Some other topics covered are the properties of membrane glycoproteins, involved in the resistance of cells to drugs, and the metabolism of sugars and sialic acids, both of which form a pivotal role in the author's studies. The book chronicles just some of the huge advances that have been made in biochemistry over the past few decades.

Synopsis:

This book is based on a series of six lectures given at the Accademia dei Lincei. The contents focus on the special properties of bound carbohydrates in nature. It will prove an instructive and entertaining first hand account for researchers and graduate students.

Synopsis:

This book is based on a series of six lectures delivered at the University of Sienna under the auspices of the Lezioni Lincee series. The content of the book reflects and delineates the author's career in biochemical research, influenced by his experience in the laboratory of J. M. Buchanan at M.I.T. The lectures focus on special properties of carbohydrates in nature. The book chronicles just some of the huge advances which have been made in biochemistry over the past few decades and will prove an invaluable and entertaining first hand account for researchers and graduate students.

Synopsis:

Summary of Professor Waren's pivotal research on the special properties of bound carbohydrates in nature.
