Academic Press  May 2008  

Softcover  1323 pp  ISBN 9780123705013      £63.00
  • A one-stop source for proven methods and protocols for synthesising bioconjugates in the laboratory, allowing for fast retrieval of tried and tested techniques for synthesising bioconjugates
  • Step-by-step presentation makes this book an ideal source for researchers who are less familiar with the synthesis of bioconjugates
  • The book provides information on the chemistry underlying bioconjugate synthesis
  • This second edition is the essential guide to the modification and cross linking of biomoleculaes for use in research, diagnostics and therapeutics.

It provides highly detailed information on the chemistry, reagent systems, and practical applications for creating labelled or conjugate molecules. It also described dozens of reactions with details on hundreds of commercially available reagents and the use of these reagents for modifying or cross-linking peptides and proteins, sugars and polysaccharidies, nucleic acids and oligonucleotides, lipds and synthetic polymers.

Of interest to researchers in biochemistry, molecular biology, immunology, pharmacology, cell biology, and microbiology
