Bacterial Immunoglobulin-Binding Proteins, Volume 1: Microbiology, Chemistry, and Biology investigates the immunoglobulin and Fc-binding proteins that have been isolated and characterized from a wide array of microorganisms, including protein A from staphylococcus and protein G from streptococcus. It examines the antigenic relationships among bacterial immunoglobulin-binding proteins, the immunoglobulin D-binding bacteria, the complement activation and bacterial immunoglobulin-binding proteins, the nature of the interaction of bacterial Fc receptors and immunoglobulin G, and the bacterial Fc receptors as putative virulence factors. Organized into 31 chapters, this volume begins with a historical overview of bacterial immunoglobulin-binding proteins, receptors for immunoglobulins, amino acid sequence of Fc receptors, and cloning of genes. It then discusses the staphylococcal protein A, including its biological activities and applications to immunotechnology. The book also explains the gene for staphylococcal protein A, immunoglobulin G Fc receptors of group A streptococci, and streptococcal protein G. It presents the structure and evolution of the streptococcal genes encoding protein G and interaction of bacterial immunoglobulin receptors with sites in the Fab region. It also discusses the lymphocyte stimulation by bacterial Fc receptors and cloning and expression of the beta protein gene of group B streptococci. The book concludes with a chapter on Fc receptors and the pathogenesis of bacterial infections in animals. This book will be of interest to biologists, microbiologists, chemists, and researchers working with immunoglobulin-binding proteins found in bacteria.

This volume serves as a proteomics reference manual, describing experimental design and execution. The book also shows a large number of examples as to what can be achieved using proteomics techniques. As a relatively young area of scientific research, the breadth and depth of the current state of the art in proteomics might not be obvious to all potential users. There are various books and review articles that cover certain aspects of proteomics but they often lack technical details. Subject specific literature also lacks the broad overviews that are needed to design an experiment in which all steps are compatible and coherent. The objective of this book was to create a proteomics manual to provide scientists who are not experts in the field with an overview of: 1. The types of samples can be analyzed by mass spectrometry for proteomics analysis. 2. Ways to convert biological or ecological samples to analytes ready for mass spectral analysis. 3. Ways to reduce the complexity of the proteome to achieve better coverage of the constituent proteins. 4. How various mass spectrometers work and different ways they can be used for proteomics analysis 5. The various platforms that are available for proteomics data analysis 6. The various applications of proteomics technologies in biological and medical sciences This book should appeal to anyone with an interest in proteomics technologies, proteomics related bioinformatics and proteomics data generation and interpretation. With the broad setup and chapters written by experts in the field, there is information that is valuable for students as well as for researchers who are looking for a hands on introduction into the strengths, weaknesses and opportunities of proteomics.

Introduces Groundbreaking Approaches for Assessing Lectin Function Lectins and their ligands are under quite a heavy microscope due to their potential applications to pharmacology, immunology, cancer therapy, and agriculture. With growing interest in the glycobiology field, the body of research related to lectin roles has grown at an explosive rate, particularly in the past 20 years. Animal Lectins: A Functional View presents the most up-to-date analysis of these carbohydrate-binding, and potentially lifesaving, proteins in one comprehensive volume. This standard-setting resource presents new insights into the biological roles of most animal lectins, including their function in infection prevention through innate immunity. It also discusses such lectin behaviors as: Glycoprotein folding Sorting and targeting Cell adhesion Embryogenesis Cell-cell interactions and signaling Describes the Structural Basis of Protein-Carbohydrate Interactions Under the editorial guidance of two leading protein chemistry experts and with contributions from well-recognized field authorities, this book logically and systematically discusses both intracellular and extracellular lectin functions. It is an essential springboard for future field research and a clear and concise knowledge base that glycobiology, biochemistry, and immunology researchers cannot afford to be without.

In The Protein Protocols Handbook, I have attempted to provide a cross-section of analytical techniques commonly used for proteins and peptides, thus providing a benehtop manual and guide both for those who are new to the protein chemistry laboratory and for those more established workers who wish to use a technique for the first time. We each, of course, have our own favorite, commonly used gel system, g- staining method, blotting method, and so on; I'm sure you will find yours here. H- ever, I have also described a variety of altematives for many of these techniques; though they may not be superior to the methods you commonly use, they may nev- theless be more appropriate in a particular situation. Only by knowing the range of techniques that are available to you, and the strengths and limitations of these te- niques, will you be able to choose the method that best suits your purpose.
