Most proteins within living organisms contain glycans. Glycan structures can modulate the biological properties and functions of glycoproteins. The major glycans of glycoproteins can be classified into two groups, N-glycans and O-glycans, according to their glycan-peptide linkage regions. Developments in glycobiology have revealed a new type of glycosidic linkage to the peptide portion, the O-mannosyl linkage, in mammals, while so far it had been thought to be specific to yeast.
