Description: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.
