The diversity in molecular arrangements and dynamics displayed by glycans renders traditional NMR strategies, employed for proteins and nucleic acids, insufficient. Because of the unique properties of glycans, structural studies often require the adoption of a different repertoire of tailor-made experiments and protocols. We present an account of recent developments in NMR techniques that will deepen our understanding of structure-function relations in glycans. We open with a survey and… CONTINUE READING
