Glycomics

Background

Similar to genome, transcriptome or proteome, glycome is a set of complete glycans and glycoconjugates produced by cells or organisms under specific conditions. As opposed to amino acids in proteins or nucleotides in DNA, the monosaccharide units in sugar chains can be linked to each other in many different ways, so their biosynthesis lacks direct templates and standard mode. The structural diversity of the oligosaccharide branch, the added diversity of complex terminal saccharides, as well as various chemical modifications, such as phosphorylation, sulfation and acetylation, all further increase the structural diversity of glycans. These huge structural diversities enable glycans to encode a large amount of information, including cell signals, immune responses, and molecular recognition.

Identifying and analyzing the quantity, structure, and function of glycans is difficult. But in recent years, with the development of science and technology and scientific researchers' continuous efforts, this task has become easier. Currently, a variety of high resolution and high sensitivity methods are available, including capillary electrophoresis (CE), high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and lectin microarrays, etc.
