Cell surface glycoengineering is an emerging technology that regulates the biological behavior and function of cells by manipulating the synthesis and modification process of cell surface glycoproteins and glycolipids, and changing the structure and composition of cell surface sugar chains. The glycans displayed on the cell surface determine how the cell interacts with other cells and molecules in the environment. Therefore, methods to control glycan expression are valuable tools for understanding and modulating the biological functions of cell surface glycoconjugates. Cell surface glycoengineering services can provide an in-depth understanding of their biological functions and provide new targets for disease diagnosis and treatment.
Cell surface glycans play critical roles in a wide range of cellular functions, including adhesion, signaling, and immune responses. By engineering these surface glycans, scientists tailor the behavior of cells for a variety of applications. CD BioGlyco provides the most efficient and up-to-date strategies for cell surface glycoengineering, including but not limited to what is shown in Fig.2.

Technology: Enzymatic glycoengineering approach
Journal: Nature Communications
Results: The authors employed an enzymatic engineering method to transform an N-linked glycoprotein into a laminin-binding glycoprotein, specifically recognized by IIH6. By applying this technique, they successfully restored infection with a lassa-pseudovirus in cells lacking either α-dystroglycan or O-mannosylation. Additionally, viral infection in wildtype cells was effectively inhibited by free matriglycan in a dose-dependent manner, with the length of the matriglycan playing a crucial role.
Here are some of the results shown in this article:
