About this Book
'Nowadays as a result of these manifold synthetic efforts a large number of inhibitors are available, that can be applied selectively for many different glycosidases. They are important aids to explain the construction and degradation particularly of complex carbohydrate side chains such as those found in glycoproteins and glycolipids. The amount of chemical and biochemical information has meanwhile grown to such an extent that it is almost impossible to keep track of the developments. Therefore it is particularly pleasing that contributions from experts for the individual fields are collected together in one work, thus providing a comprehensive overview. In this way this book gives a representative cross-section of the field. The book will be a generally interesting source of information for chemists and biochemists.' (from the foreword by H. Paulsen).
A table which lists over 400 glycosidase inhibitors, more than 200 enzymes with 323 citations and over 1500 invaluable sets of data completes the book.
