Glycobiology: Its Role In Human Health

Glycobiology and Glycochemistry are the two main intertwined areas of Glycosciences, dealing with various aspects of glycans, including carbohydrate structure, biochemistry, biological functions and applications. This is necessary in order to sustain and advance the identification of key glycobiological aspects and the application of glycans and glycoengineering strategies in the design of novel therapies to improve human health. The glycans (carbohydrates) form a diverse group of biomolecules which play active parts in most physiological processes. The field of structural glycobiology concerns the structures of the glycans themselves, the proteins which interact with them and the nature of the interactions between the two. Drug targeting is important for our understanding of human health and disease, and for development of new therapeutic strategies.

Now a days very recently, by expanding the knowledge of modern molecular biology and medicine, Glycosciences have become more vibrant. At long last, the importance of glycans in biological processes has started to be appreciated. Glycosciences provides us with solutions and offer tools for demanding health problems. Most lectins are members of families with defined carbohydrate-recognition domains (CRDs) that apparently evolved from shared ancestral genes, often retaining specific features of primary amino acid sequence or three-dimensional structure. These include the use of glycans themselves as therapeutic molecules as well as engineering protein and cell surface glycans to suit clinical applications to that of databases providing glycoenzyme data.
