Glycans in Diseases and Therapeutics

Glycomedicine functions as essential role in cell-cell adhesion i.e. a device used by cells of the immune system through sugar-binding proteins called lectins, which classify precise carbohydrate portions. Glycans (carbohydrate oligomers) are the so-called “building blocks” of carbohydrates, nucleic acids, proteins and lipids play leading roles in various biological phenomena as well as in numerous pathophysiological procedures. Several scientists have now understood that glycosylation, i.e. the count of glycans to a protein backbone, is the most plentiful post translational alteration responses and is a major field of research and sometimes they require a glycobiology method to be exploited
