About this book


This volume presents a series of experimental protocols for glycan analysis using lectins and the functional analysis of lectins. A key feature in this book are two comprehensive overview chapters on lectin structures and a list of the all the lectins—these chapters discuss the latest findings in the field. The remainder of the book covers topics such as lectins from mammals, non-mammalian animals; plants, algae, fungi, protists, bacteria, and viruses. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.
Cutting-edge and thorough, Lectin Purification and Analysis: Methods and Protocols is a valuable tool for any scientist interested in learning more about these life systems.
