Literature Review: Distinguishing glycosylation patterns in proteins for the early detection of cancer.
7th May 2019
Glycosylation is a post-translational modification where a carbohydrate is added to a protein. Glycosylation of proteins serves a number of functions in a cell, including: improve protein folding, forming lipid anchors and cell-to-cell adhesion. While glycosylation of a protein can be vital for its function, any changes in the position or number of […]
