Glyconeurobiology: Glycans in Neuroscience

Sugar rich molecules like including glycolipids, glycoproteins, and proteoglycans in the nervous system have significant roles during growth, redevelopment and synaptic plasticity. The structural diversity of the carbohydrate moieties renders them ideally suited as stage-specific biomarkers for numerous cell types leading to mediate interactions between recognition molecules, thereby contributing to the formation of a complex molecular structure at the cell surface and in the extracellular matrix of the cell. The exceptional structural diversity of glycan chains and related moieties allows for huge advanced possibilities that can leads to cell interactions along with cell matrix interactions.
