Glycopathology: Glycans in Cancer

Carbohydrates are basically considered as major sources of structural materials and energy for living organisms. Recent modern research’s in this area has focused mainly on simple basic sugars and homopolysaccharides such as, starch, cellulose, glycogen, and chitin. During the last few decades, the researchers have shifted their focus on complex forms like carbohydrates, especially proteoglycans, glycolipids and glycoproteins which are collectively referred to as glycoconjugates  that shows the potential of recognition markers in the biological system which also relates to other biomedical and clinical fields.The roles of glycans and glycoconjgates in cancer have been emphasizes, because a small alterations in glycosylation can  tremendously regulate the whole pathway and mechanisms of cancer, which leads to an indication as a biomarker development leading to various therapeutics development in cancer research.
