Summary

Carbohydrates have long been disregarded by the scientific community due to their complex structure and a lack of suitable experimental methods for structure determination. This book provides an overview of the structure, function, and application of carbohydrate-modifying biocatalysts. It explores glycoconjugates and carbohydrate-modifying enzymes and the key roles they play in biological processes such as recognition, signal transduction, and immune responses. It discusses research activities in glycoscience, including the development of several new pharmaceuticals to treat malaria, cancer, and other diseases.
