 Project objective

Cell surface carbohydrates play key roles in cell recognition mechanisms. Protein-carbohydrate interactions typically exhibit high specificity and weak affinities toward their carbohydrate ligand. This low affinity is compensated in nature by the architecture of the protein, the host presenting the carbohydrate ligands in a multivalent manner or as clusters on the cell or mucosal surface. O-glycosylation is a ubiquitous post-translational modification that is highly dynamic and responsive to cellular stimuli through the action of the cycling enzymes. Expression of specific O-glycans is linked to changes in gene expression in, for example, inflammatory bowel disease, cystic fibrosis and several types of cancer. Understanding these glycosylation patterns at molecular and functional levels will allow mechanisms associated with bacterial-host interactions, bowel disease and other cancers to be defined, which will facilitate the development of new effective therapeutics and diagnostic tools for these conditions. The proposal centers on the chemo-enzymatic synthesis of novel multivalent mucin-type O-glycan probes for the screening of O-glycosylation-linked interactions in health and in disease and the development of smart glyco-nanoparticles as drug delivery systems. This is a multidisciplinary project involving synthetic organic and inorganic chemistry and glycobiology.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "GLYCO-PLATFORMS" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email (fabio@fabiodisconzi.com) and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.

The information about "GLYCO-PLATFORMS" are provided by the European Opendata Portal: CORDIS opendata.
