Carbohydrate-Active Enzymes: Structure, Function and Applications (Hardback)K. H. Park (editor)
- Not available
Although advances in biochemistry and biotechnology have sparked significant advances in carbohydrate-active enzyme research, the mechanism of catalytic reaction of carbohydrate-active enzymes is still not fully understood. Based on papers presented at the 2008 Agricultural Biotechnology Symposium held in Seoul, this comprehensive collection summarizes some of the most important research in the field of carbohydrate-active enzymes-focusing on the enzymatic reaction mechanism, structure-function relationship and role in the living organism.
The text reviews the important results on new types of carbohydrate-active enzymes and their applications reported on at these meetings. Part one focuses on structure-function relationships of carbohydrate-active enzymes. Part two discuss functions and applications of carbohydrate-active enzymes, such as enzymes for grain processing and glycosidases and their mutants as useful tools for glycoside synthesis.
With its distinguished editor and international team of contributors, Carbohydrate-Active Enzymes: Structure, Function, and Applications is an essential reference for research scientists, post-graduate students and those in the food industry with an interest in enzymes.
