General description

This book covers the recent progress in understanding the biological roles of carbohydrates. Emphasis is particularly placed on biological significance in immune cells, neural cells and cytoplasmic and nuclear proteins. It updates the knowledge of diseases caused by anomalies of carbohydrate biosynthesis and the animal models used to investigate the physiological roles of carbohydrates including carbohydrates attached to lipids and attempts to develop therapeutic agents based on carbohydrates.
