Glycobiology in Lipid Science

Glycan’s are saccharides that can be linked to a variety of  biological molecules through an enzymatic process called glycosylation to elevate their function of the four fundamental building blocks of life, proteins, carbohydrates (glycan’s), lipids and nucleic acids. Glycan’s have received the least attention from researchers. Glycan’s are found in Achaea, bacteria and eukaryotes, and their diverse functions contribute to physical and structural integrity, extracellular matrix formation, signal transduction, protein folding and information exchange between cells.  The glycan components of these means can be more important to determine the biological activity and therapeutic ability. Biochemistry and Glycobiology possess a multidisciplinary study of carbohydrate-binding proteins, glycolipids and some other plants protein that are capable of interacting with endogenous or foreign molecules.
