Research output: Contribution to journalConference article


Glycan structures are involved in tumor progression and metastasis formation (See Fig. 1) by affecting cell proliferation and survival, adhesion, migration, angiogenesis and immunogenic mimicry. Investigation on glycosylation could help to establish high-sensitivity screening methods based on unique pattern. Rational drug design could also target glycosylation pathways.
