Glycoproteins play an important role in the regulation of gene expression, cell growth, migration, differentiation and apoptosis. Over the last decade, research has highlighted the therapeutic implications of glycoproteins for many physiological and pathological processes, such as inflammation, arthritis and metastasis. The first part of the book deals with the structure and biosynthesis of glycoconjugates; the second part addresses the pathological roles played by glycoconjugates and their potential therapeutic applications.
