Glycans

Some articles on glycans, glycan:

SIGLEC - Function
... The primary function of Siglecs is to bind glycans containing sialic acids ... These receptor-glycan interactions can be used in cell adhesion, cell signalling and others ... cells are covered in sialic acid-containing glycans ...
Swainsonine - Pharmacology
... Disruption of Golgi alpha-mannosidase II with swainsonine induces hybrid-type glycans ... These glycans have a Man5GlcNAc2 core with processing on the 3-arm that resembles so-called complex-type glycans ...
Glycomics - Challenges
... Moreover, glycans can be modified (modified sugars), this increases its complexity ... Complex biosynthetic pathways for glycans ... Usually glycans are found either bound to protein (glycoprotein) or conjugated with lipids (glycolipids) ...
