Cell Surface carbohydrates play critical roles in cell-cell interaction. In recent years, amjor advances have been made in understanding the molecular mechanisms of these processes. Genes encoding glycosyltransferases that synthesise unique obligosccharides have been isolates, allowing thecorrelation of specific oligosccharide structures with function. This book brings together leading researchers to describe our current knowledge in this important area of modern biology. Particular emphasis is given to cell type specific carbohydrate expression and the carbohydrates and proteinsinvolved in cell recognition. Also included is a full discussion of key experimental approaches such as chemical synthesis and the three dimensional structural analysis of carbohydrates.Molecular Glycobiologyis a timely synopsis of this exciting and rapidly expanding file. It provides both an up to date description of the subject and leading researchers view of likely future developments. As such, this volume will be invaluable for active researchers in glycobiology and medicine. However, its easily readable style will aso appeal to non specialists who need an authoritative but accessible text on this subject.
