  • In biological systems oligosaccharides are normally conjugated to proteins or lipids. The heterogeneity and branching of oligosaccharides allow glycoconjugates to display a further level of structural and functional diversity compared with linear proteins and nucleic acids or with lipids. This review summarizes some general principles that are emerging from the new field of glycobiology which, by addressing the molecular interactions of glycoconjugates in biological systems, spans the classical… CONTINUE READING
