Analyzing Sugar-Based Structures in Living Organisms
This video shows Professor Andras Guttman from the University of Pannonia, talking about analytical glycomics.
Glycomics is a part of glyco-biology aiming to analyze the sugar structures in a living organism and analytical glycomics has the task to reveal their real structures. Capillary electrophoresis has been playing vital role in the analysis of sugar-based structures like DNA sequencing. So, by utilizing the knowledge from DNA sequencing and applying it for glycan analysis, one can get more information about glycans. Currently, analytical glycomics is used in the biopharmaceutical industry as well as in the biomedical field. In the biopharmaceutical industry, analytical glycomics is mostly used for the discovery of new protein therapeutics like monoclonal antibody drugs. In the biomedical field, analytical glycomics is used to understand glyco-biomarkers which are mainly proteins that have been identified as biomarkers.
