Sialic Acids and Sialoglycoconjugates in the Biology of Life Health and Disease

Sialic Acids and Sialoglycoconjugates in the Biology of life, Health and Disease provides insight in the latest knowledge developed in the field of sialoglycobiology. Sialic acids as terminal residues of oligosaccharide chains play crucial roles in several cellular recognition events. Synthesised post translationally they play important role in recognition, signalling, immunological response and cell-cell interaction. Sialioglycoconjugates form an important biomarker in disease. Improper sialylations have been associated with several diseases including cancer. In the post genomics and proteomics era sialoglybiology has become more and more important in deciphering a health and disease condition. Sialic Acids and Sialoglycoconjugates in the Biology of life, Health and Disease enables the reader to understand the role of sialylation as post translational modification. Discusses the sialic acid and their role in different diseases other than cancer Provides understanding to sialylations as post translational modifications (PTM) Demonstrates the impact sialylation has on infectious diseases, the autoimmune system and health Gives insight in the importance of sialic acid biology through animal models

Although bioactive compounds in milk and dairy products have been extensively studied during the last few decades – especially in human and bovine milks and some dairy products – very few publications on this topic are available, especially in other dairy species’ milk and their processed dairy products. Also, little is available in the areas of bioactive and nutraceutical compounds in bovine and human milks, while books on other mammalian species are non-existent.

Milk is nature’s most complete food, and dairy productsare considered to be the most nutritious foods of all. Thetraditional view of the role of milk has been greatly expanded inrecent years beyond the horizon of nutritional subsistence ofinfants: it is now recognized to be more than a source of nutrientsfor the healthy growth of children and nourishment of adulthumans. Alongside its major proteins (casein and whey), milk containsbiologically active compounds, which have important physiologicaland biochemical functions and significant impacts
