Glycopeptides offer a unique frontier for research & development. The critical role of glycan elements on cell surface proteins and those bound to circulatory proteins is well recognized. Carbohydrates on proteins mediate a host of biological events including cell adhesion, immune system function, fertilization, cellular targeting as well as protein transport, stabilization, and half-life. Thus, the use of synthetic glycoproteins or their fragments (glycopeptides) as experimental probes for basic research and biomedical applications is growing rapidly.
