Renato Iozzo and an authoritative team of investigators present for the first time a comprehensive and up-to-date collection of readily reproducible preparative and analytical methods for the in-depth analysis of these important compounds. Featuring step-by-step protocols, this book will enable both novice and experienced researchers to isolate intact proteoglycans from tissues and cultured cells, to establish the composition of their carbohydrate moieties, and to generate strategies for prokaryotic and eukaryotic expression. There are also detailed techniques for the suppression of specific proteoglycan genes, for the detection of mutant cells and their degradation products, and for studying specific interactions between proteoglycans and extracellular matrix proteins and with growth factors and their receptors.
The book is strategically subdivide into 3 sections (isolation and purification; expression, detection, and degradation; interactions) with a total of 51 chapters ( 19, 20, and 12 per subheading). Their contents dispel the cliches about work with sticky glycosaminoglycans being tedious, unrewarding, and mostly for the sake of old-fashioned systematics. I expect even experts in certain areas to benefit from the whole book, whose rightful place will be on the bench, not on the shelf. - ChemBioChem This book will appeal to both those new to the subject and experts in the field as the protocols outlined are both wide ranging, comprehensive, and easy to follow. strongly recommend it to those new to proteoglycan research, and would regard it as an essential addition to any proteoglycan research laboratory library. - Molecular Biotechnology ...this book will be a very useful tool for many specialists working in the fields of glycobiology, biotechnology, biochemistry, and experimental medicine. Detailed description of the methods employed for various aspects of proteoglycan analysis and comprehensive bibliography accompanying each chapter make this book especially valuable for a large audience of the mentioned specialists.
