Custom Glycoside Synthesis

Custom Glycoside Synthesis

Many advances in glycobiology have increasingly revealed the crucial roles of glycosides in biological processes. CD BioGlyco is committed to providing our customers with optimal synthesis solutions to custom synthesize high-quality glycoside molecules, which can accelerate their research in new drugs and new materials.


Glycoside structure covers the surface of all cellular organisms, the ubiquitous throughout nature of glycoside suggests its extensive functions in biological systems, such as influencing function and stability of cells and enzymes, acting as recognition motifs in cell identification, as well as function in the field of health and immunity. The demand for the synthesis of defined glycosides is gradually rising with the increasingly growing knowledge of the crucial roles of glycosides.

At present, the synthesis of glycosides mainly consists of chemical methods, enzyme methods, and the combination of two methods. The chemical synthesis method of glycosides is well developed but requires numerous protecting group strategies to avoid side product formation. Among the biocatalysis strategies, a kind of genetically engineered glucosidase lack of hydrolytic activity enables the selective synthesis of glycosidic in high yields. In addition, reports of other effective methods such as in situ generations of donor molecules have greatly expanded the repertoire of glycosylases.
