Summary
This is the first book specifically on galectins?a challenging and promising area in medical biochemistry and drug design. After an introduction to galectins, the book covers their structure and functions, ligand specificity, and molecular mechanisms of action, along with the roles galectins play in tumor growth and cancer, fibrosis, inflammation, and immunity. Then it covers the effect of galectins on cell migration, angiogenesis, and chemoresistance and describes new approaches to designing galectin inhibitors. This is a core reference for chemists, biochemists, pharmacologists, biologists
