Glycoscience: Integrating a Key Macromolecule More Fully into the Curriculum

Abstract

Glycans1 form one of the four basic classes of macromolecules in living systems, along with nucleic acids, proteins, and lipids. They are composed of individual sugar units that can be linked to one another in multiple ways, enabling them to form complex three-dimensional structures. All living cells are coated on their cell membranes with glycans or… (More)
