By Alexandra Castilho

Conceived with the purpose of delivering an array of suggestions and applied sciences presently in use for glyco-engineering designated dwelling organisms, this e-book features a wide variety of equipment being constructed to regulate the composition of carbohydrates and the houses of proteins via manipulations at the construction host instead of within the protein itself. the 1st 5 sections care for host-specific glyco-engineering and comprise chapters that supply protocols for changes of the glycosylation pathway in micro organism, yeast, insect, vegetation and mammalian cells, whereas the final sections discover replacement techniques to host glyco-engineering and chosen protocols for the research of the N-glycans and glyco-profiling through mass spectrometry. Written for the hugely profitable Methods in Molecular Biology sequence, chapters contain introductions to their respective subject matters, lists of the mandatory fabrics and reagents, step by step, effortlessly reproducible laboratory protocols and pointers on troubleshooting and heading off identified pitfalls.

Authoritative and large, Glyco-Engineering: tools and Protocols deals huge recommendations to assist researchers to decide on the expression method and method that most closely fits their meant protein study or applications.
