The size of information that can be stored in nucleic acids, proteins, and carbohydrates was calculated. The number of hexamers for peptides is 64,000,000 (206) and seems to be impressive in comparison with 4,096 (46) hexanucleotides, but the number of isomers of hexasaccharides is 1.44 × 1015. Carbohydrates are therefore the best high-density coding system. This language has been named glycocode resp. sugar code. In comparison with peptide dendrimers, the amount of information carried by… Expand

Sugar Code (Glycocode)
The vast majority of signal transduction processes in most living organisms are caused by four sorts of biomolecules: nucleic acids, proteins, glycoconjugates and lipids. The sequence and structureExpand
Peptide- and saccharide-conjugated dendrimers for targeted drug delivery: a concise review
TLDR
With more studies to elucidate the structure–function relationship of ligand–dendrimer conjugates in transporting drugs, the conjugated dendrimers hold promise to facilitate targeted delivery and improve drug efficacy for discovery and development of modern pharmaceutics. Expand

TLDR
The studies of CD-peptide/protein are promising in biomedical application and provide new possibilities for the conjugation of simple molecules to biomolecules. Expand
Synthetic glycopeptides and glycoproteins with applications in biological research
TLDR
The synthesis of structurally defined, complex glycopeptides or glyco-clusters presented on natural peptide backbones, or mimics thereof, offer further possibilities to study protein-binding events. Expand
Multivalent display of the antimicrobial peptides BP100 and BP143
TLDR
The results suggest that preassembling antimicrobial peptides to multimeric structures is not always associated with a significant improvement of the activity, and the carbopeptides synthesized were active against human red blood cells pointing out that peptide preassembly is critical for the hemolytic activity.

Classes of Peptide-, Glyco-, and Glycopeptide Dendrimers
It is a difficult task to create a simple, universal, clear, unambiguous, logical, and generally applicable classification or even nomenclature of different sorts of dendrimers. In general,Expand
Cyclodextrin-based multivalent glycodisplays: covalent and supramolecular conjugates to assess carbohydrate-protein interactions.
TLDR
Multivalent CD conjugates have been, and continue to be, major actors in studies directed at deciphering the structural features ruling carbohydrate recognition events, and applications in the fields of sensors, site-specific drug and gene delivery or protein stabilization attest for the maturity of the field.

Large-scale synthesis and structural analysis of a synthetic glycopeptide dendrimer as an anti-cancer vaccine candidate.
TLDR
The current study demonstrates the feasibility of the multigram-scale synthesis of a highly pure complex glycopeptide, and it opens new avenues for the use of synthetic glycopePTides as drugs in humans. Expand
Influence of surface groups on poly(propylene imine) dendrimers antiprion activity.
TLDR
A new working model is proposed which proposes dendrimers eliminate PrP(Sc) by destabilizing the protein and rendering it susceptible to proteolysis, which is not dependent on any particular charge of d endrimer, but does require a high density of reactive surface groups. Expand
