BACKGROUND Glycohemoglobins (GHb) are the products of irreversible non-enzymatic reactions between glucose and the hemoglobin molecule. Glycosylation of proteins in general can modify protein structure and alter catalytic properties, thereby causing cellular dysfunction. The aim of the present study was to test the hypothesis that protein glycosylation… CONTINUE READING
