Protein-Carbohydrate Interactions

Binding of carbohydrates to proteins such as receptors, antibodies or lectins is of prime importance for many biological processes in health and disease. Based on solid experience in the synthesis of complex oligosaccharides, neoglycoconjugates and biosynthetic intermediates, the recognition of bacterial, viral and parasite antigens by components of the adaptive and innate immune system is in the core of our research
