Principles of Glycan Recognition


Cummings RD, Schnaar RL, Esko JD, Drickamer K, Taylor ME. Principles of Glycan Recognition. In: ; 2017.


Glycans interact with many types of proteins including enzymes, antibodies, and lectins. Protein recognition of glycans represents a major way in which the information contained in glycan structures is deciphered and promotes biological activities. This chapter describes approaches to study the kinetics and thermodynamics of interactions between glycans and glycan-binding proteins (GBPs).
