This month's interesting fact about glycoscience is about #glycopeptides made by bacteria and the importance of #carbohydrates in antibiotics.

Recently Dr. Cummings from the @ncfg published the first ever Periodic Table of Monosaccharides. We thought it would be great to have an interactive version of this as a website, and so we built one.

This month's interesting fact about glycans discusses the heavily O-glycosylated (specifically O-GlcNAcylated) protein in the nucleus - RNA Polymerase II.

As the rest of the community, we have excited about #AF3 and have been testing its performance in the reconstruction of glycans and glycosylation. We have found the following limitations users should be aware of:

- The structure of the Asn-linkages is incorrect

- All N-glycans have an a2 arm, while the Man should be in a3

What we suggest 😜 is to build the protein with AF3 and to reglycosylate it with ReGlyco at :awesome:


This month on our blog - we highlight interesting facts about Pectin - One of the Most Complex Polysaccharides in Nature and its Healing Properties.

Elegant study shows how the location and composition of N-glycans (glyco-code) influences protein folding and quality control. Competition between early lectin chaperone and BiP, and the role of UGGT particularly ineteresting.


Excited about the #GlycoNMR summit (online meeting) that is just about to start. #NMR analysis of polysaccharides and glycoproteins. The event runs multiple days on zoom, hosted by the University of Georgia. More info and register: #nmrchat #glycotime

Interesting! L-fucose administration ameliorates the LPS-induced neuroinflammation in the Fut8+/βˆ’ mice, suggesting that core fucosylation plays a vital role in anti-inflammation. L-Fuc as a potential drug against neuroinflammation?


You have heard of the periodic table of elements-
we present the Periodic Table of Monosaccharides where we attempt to arrange the monosaccharides in a systematic table.

Are you attending the Society for Glycobiology meeting in Hawaii? Find us and learn about the work at the NCFG and the Cummings Lab.

1. We are hosting a Satellite meeting on Nov. 5th, entitled: NCFG Tools in Glycoscience, we hope you will be joining us!

2. Come check out our posters at the SFG meeting:
#155, #401, #67, #79, #89, #224, #170, and #225
We have some interesting developments in #glycan #microarrays, #glycomics and other fun stuff!

Only *two* weeks to the Annual SfG Meeting 2023 in Hawaii! :ablobsunglasses:

Check out the program of the event of the year! ⬇️

Our paper "Can #ChatGPT pass Glycobiology" is now live on #Glycobiology :ablobattention:

In this work Devin and I test chatGPT to answer a range of Glycobiology questions to assess its potentials and limitations, from the point of view of an undergraduate student and as a more expert user.

You may find a few laughs and some inspiration for educational or investigative purposes.

Hope you all enjoy it! :blobcatfingerguns:
