Implication of Aberrant Glycosylation in Cancer and Use of Lectin for Cancer Biomarker Discovery
Abstract:Aberrant glycosylation is frequently found in cancer, and efforts for biomarker discovery include the preparation of aberrant glycoproteins as promising analytes. Several lectins that bind to aberrant glycans and can be thus used to capture and enrich aberrant glycoproteins in the frontal stage during biomarker discovery are to be introduced.

More about this publication?
- Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
