About the book
Glycosylation is an important and very precisely regulated biological event of protein processing within the cellular environment. This mega event plays a crucial role in ascertaining protein structure, function, fate, and ligand-receptor association. The glycosylation process also has a significant role in several human diseases. The present book will provide deep insights into non-enzymatic glycosylation events in the cells and how biomacromolecules like proteins, lipids, and nucleic acids get affected by this event.
This book also puts light on the various categories of glycosylation like N-linked, O-linked, C-linked, and phosphoserine glycosylation events that are involved in disease biology and its pathogenesis. The frontier part of this book gives newer treatment approaches by targeting glycosylation to treat human diseases like diabetes and its associated micro-vascular and macro-vascular complication, cancer, viral hepatitis B, Gaucher disease, etc. This book will provide a complete package of glycosylation fundamentals for the healthcare system, clinicians, and researchers.
