About this book


Carbohydrate microarrays emerged as a key technology for the deciphering of the glycospace by providing a multiplex technology where tens to hundreds of carbohydrates/protein interactions can be probed in parallel. Carbohydrate Microarrays: Methods and Protocols aims to give the reader the theoretical and experimental clues necessary for the fabrication and implementation of carbohydrate microarrays. This requires three essential steps: 1) to obtain the carbohydrate probes (monosacharides, oligosacchrides, polysacchairdes, glycoconjugates or glycoclusters), 2) to immobilize these probes, and 3) to implement the protocols for biological/biochemical interaction with the desired target. This volume gives an overview of carbohydrate microarray and carbohydrate chemistry and illustrates different detection techniques and their applications. Written in the 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 protocols, and notes on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.


Authoritative and easily accessible, Carbohydrate Microarrays: Methods and Protocols compiles a catalogue of protocols on carbohydrate microarrays to span the needs of researchers around the globe.
