Summary: Glycobiology is a branch of biology that deals with study of structure, function, and biosynthesis of saccharides (carbohydrates and carbohydrates containing molecules), which is the fundamental to all biological systems that may exist in pure form or are associated with other biological molecules to form glycoconjugates.

Glycosaminoglycans are linear carbohydrate polymers that are composed of alternating uronate and hexosamine saccharides linked by glyosidic linkages [31].
For FT-MIR data, however, the spectra were first modified by estimating unit absorbance area under the band 900-1150 [cm.sup.-1] which corresponds to the "saccharides" regions and the unit absorbance area under the band 3000-3600 [cm.sup.-1] which corresponds to O-H bond stretching vibration.
Carbohydrates act as structural, storage components and a source of carbon for all living organisms and can be divided into three main saccharides (mono, di and poly-saccharides).
acidophilus in media added with saccharides including prebiotics significantly increased reflecting the acid-creating capability of the bacterium.
Saccharides have attracted much attention because of their potential as functions in biological recognition processes, and the applications of similar functional polymers are expected in the biomedical field.
Antigen specificity was evaluated via competition of scFv-Fc binding to immobilized SCHPK by various soluble saccharides. Each scFv-Fc was used in the concentration that resulted in 40% of the saturation signal in the titration ELISA.
Boronic acids are known to form boronate esters with saccharides through reversible boronic acid-diol interactions (Scheme 1(a)) [1, 2].
