About the Journal

Index Copernicus Value 2016: 80.45

Journal of Glycobiology is a peer reviewed journal that publishes studies related to structure, biosynthesis, biology and functions of different saccharides, glycans, oligosaccharides or the different proteins which interact with the glycans.

Journal of Glycobiology is a Open Access Scientific Journal that offers an interesting publishing platform globally and aims to keep scientists, researchers, and students informed and updated on the ongoing research in the relevant area. Outstanding quality articles are welcome to maintain the highest standard of the journal and to achieve high impact factor.

Journal of Glycobiology  is using Editorial Manager System for maintaining the quality in peer review process. Editorial Manager is an online manuscript submission, review and tracking system. Review processing is performed by the editorial board members of Journal of Glycobiology: Current Research or by outside experts. At least two independent reviewers approval followed by editor approval is required for acceptance of any citable manuscript. Authors may submit manuscripts and track their progress through the system, hopefully to publication. Reviewers can download manuscripts and submit their opinions to the editor. Editors can manage the whole submission/review/revise/publish process.


A bacterial product that enables bacteria to adhere to and colonize a host. Adherence is often an essential step in pathogenesis. Adhenins are attractive candidates for vaccines and/or components of accellular vaccines such as those for pertussis. their susceptibility to reversal of such binding activities in the presence of mannose. negative bacteria function as adhenins, but in many cases it is a minor subunit protein at the tip of the fimbriae that is the actual adhenin. In gram-positive bacteria, a protein or polysaccharide surface layer serves as the specific adhenin

Glycosylation is the binding of carbohydrate molecules to proteins .is a post translational modification which provides greater proteomic diversity than other post translational modifications. Glycosylation is critical for a wide range of biological processes, including cell attachment to the extracellular matrix and protein-ligand interactions in the cell. Glycosylation types are classified based on the identity of the atom of the amino acid which binds the carbohydrate chain, i.e. C-linked, N-linked or O-linked. N- and C-glycosylation take place.

Glycoproteins consists of oligosaccharide chains which are covalently attached to the polypeptide side chains. The saccharide chains, referred to as glycans, can be linked to the polypeptide in two major ways. The first class of glycoproteins is the O-linked glycans. These usually contain an N-acetylgalactosamine which is attached through a glycosidic bond to the O-terminus of either threonine or serine. The other classes of glycoproteins are the N-linked glycans. These involve a glycosidic bond between N-acetylglucosamine and the N-terminus of an asparagine residue

Proteoglycans are also known as mucoproteins and are formed of glycosaminoglycan’s which are covalently attached to the core proteins. They are found in all connective tissues, extracellular matrix and on the surfaces of many cell types. Hydrated proteoglycans form the highly viscous fluid of mucus and the matrix of the intercellular ground substance of connective tissue.

Glycolipids are the lipids which attached to the carbohydrate molecules. The glycolipids are yet another division of lipids that is utilised by the human as well as other forms of life. Glycolipids are named in reference to their chemical structure: practically all glycolipids are derivatives of ceramides. Ceremides are a fatty acid bonded or connected to the amino alcohol sphingosine. In fact, although the class of lipids we discussed called phospholipids, are chemically different from glycolipids, the phospholipid we call sphingomyelin, also is derived from ceramides.

The term glycomics is defined as the study of the structure and function of carbohydrates (sugars) in biological systems. Glycomics is the comprehensive study of the Glycome. This includes the entire molecules of sugars of an organism such as glycans attached to proteins and lipids, glycosaminoglycans and polysaccharides, including genetic, physiologic, pathologic, and other aspects.

Hemagglutinins are the substances which are caused to agglutinate the RBC. Antibodies and lectins are the commonly known hemagglutinins. hemagglutinin is composed of two different types of chains, the blue chains are the targeting mechanism: they search for specific sugar chains on our cellular proteins. When they find the proper one, hemagglutinin binds to the cell and the orange chains initiate the attack

Hyaluronan is also known as Hyaluronic acid or Hyaluronate. is a high-molecular-mass polysaccharide found in the extracellular matrix, especially of soft connective tissues. It is synthesized in the plasma membrane of fibroblasts and other cells by addition of sugars to the reducing end of the polymer, whereas the nonreducing end protrudes into the pericellular space.

The chief function of lectins in animals is to facilitate cell-cell contact. A lectin usually contains two or more binding sites for carbohydrate units; some lectins form oligomeric structures with multiple binding sites. The binding sites of lectins on the surface of one cell interact with arrays of carbohydrates displayed on the surface of another cell

Sialic acid

Sialic acids are are typically found to be terminating branches of N-glycans, O-glycans, and glycosphingolipids. Human milk also contains a high concentration of sialic acid attached to the terminal end of free oligosaccharides. Sialic acids also differ from other sugars in that they are less commonly utilized as an energy source but are critical to development, cellular recognition, cell-cell attachment, and signaling

Glycoconjugates are biologically important molecules with diverse functions. They consist of carbohydrates of varying size and complexity, attached to a non-sugar moiety as a lipid or a protein. Glycoconjugate structures are often very complex and their intricate biosynthetic pathways makes overexpression difficult. While the biosynthesis of proteins and nucleic acids follows a template, the assembly of the oligosaccharides is more complex and depends on which glycosylating-enzymes that are active in the cell and if they are capable of glycosylating the substrate

C-type Lectins

C-type lectin receptors (CLRs) are a diverse family of soluble and transmembrane proteins that contain one or more C-type lectin-like domains (CTLD). Multiple members of the CLR family are considered to be pattern recognition receptors (PRRs) due to their ability to recognize pathogen-associated molecules and induce intracellular signaling pathways that regulate the immune response

P-Type Lectins

The P-type lectins play an essential role in the generation of functional lysosomes within the cells of higher eukaryotes by directing newly synthesized lysosomal enzymes bearing the mannose 6-phosphate (M6P) signal to lysosomes. cation-independent mannose 6-phosphate receptor (CI-MPR) is also referred as insulin-like growth factor 2 receptor (IGF2R) or IGF2/MPR

I-Type lectins

I-Type lectins are glycan binding proteins that belong to the immunoglobulin superfamily (IgSF), excluding antibodies and T-cell receptors. A number of disparate immunoglobulin superfamily members may bind carbohydrate ligands, but the best characterized of the I-type lectins are members of the siglec family of sialic acid-binding cell surface adhesion receptors

Glycosaminoglycans have high degrees of heterogeneity with regards to molecular mass, disaccharide construction, and sulfation due to the fact that GAG-synthesis, unlike proteins or nucleic acids, is not template driven, and dynamically modulated by processing enzymes. glycosaminoglycan chains are linear polysaccharides, whose disaccharide building blocks consist of an amino sugar N-substituted, or a uronic acid or galactose.

*2018 Journal Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published in 2016 and 2017 with the number of times they are cited in 2018 based on Google Scholar Citation Index database. If 'X' is the total number of articles published in 2016 and 2017, and 'Y' is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed journals during 2018 then, journal impact factor = Y/X
