The immune system is a complex functional network of diverse cells and soluble molecules orchestrating innate and adaptive immunity. Biological information, to run these intricate interactions, is not only stored in protein sequences but also in the structure of the glycan part of the glycoconjugates. The spatially accessible carbohydrate structures that contribute to the cell's glycome are decoded by versatile recognition systems in order to maintain the immune homeostasis of an organism… CONTINUE READING
