Powerful Tool for Glycan Research

Glycobiology is defined as the study of the structure, biosynthesis, and biological functions of glycans and saccharide conjugates (including glycoproteins, glycolipids, proteoglycans, etc.), as well as protein-glycan interactions. Glycogenomics, glycoproteomics, glycomics, and glycoinformatics help us better understand the various cellular events involved in saccharides and the role of glycans in diseases. In the production of biological agents, glycans play a crucial role, in influencing the therapeutic properties of protein drugs and their immune responses. CD BioGlyco offers research platforms in glycobiology, encompassing the investigation of glycans and saccharide conjugates' structure, biosynthesis, biological functions, and production of food ingredients. These include glycoproteins, glycolipids, proteoglycans, etc. Utilizing glycogenomics, glycoproteomics, glycomics, and glycoinformatics, we gain insights into cellular events related to saccharides and the impact of glycans on various diseases.

Results: A significant challenge in glycoscience is the insufficient availability of diverse and biomedically relevant complex glycans for functional studies. Natural sources offer an essential and viable alternative to the intricate process of chemoenzymatic synthesis. This review explores the preparation of complex glycans from various glycoconjugate classes, employing enzymatic and chemical release methods. Recent advancements in large-scale preparation from natural sources are discussed, along with innovative approaches in functional and fluorescent tagging, as well as HPLC isolation of released glycans.
