Glycomics research is important for comprehensive study of glycomes to understand the cellular signaling pathways, cell functions, genetic structure, and physiological and pathological aspects.
in support of these aims, this foa is intended to develop new approaches (catalytic methods, chemical/chemo-enzymatic methods, and technologies) to facilitate the rapid, robust, and affordable synthesis, and/or functionalization of bio-medically relevant glycans and glyco-conjugates representing 1) mammalian glycomes and 2) microbial glycans.
(31) The glycomes of N- and O-glycans from glycoproteins and glycosphingolipids from meat and roe of eight popular sea foods were analyzed with a recently established analytical technique.
Recent technical progress provided many valuable tools, in particular mass spectrometry, to study glycomes, the entire profiles of glycans in biological systems, leading to possibilities of disease biomarker development through glycomic analysis [6].
Since Salicinium is a complex sugar, it is harmless to any normal cell in the body because a normal cell cannot assimilate complex glycomes due to having no b-glucosidase and because Salicinium is a complexed molecule as discussed before and not a "free" glucose, it has no impact on the patients' blood sugar, making it beneficial for use in diabetics.
Gottingen, Germany, February 09, 2013 --( Glycomics is the comprehensive study of glycomes, the entire complement of sugars, whether free or present in more complex molecules, of an organism.
