Protein glycoengineering service

Online Inquiry

Protein glycoengineering is a specialized service offered by our company. It involves the modification and manipulation of glycans attached to proteins. Glycans, also known as carbohydrates, are complex sugar molecules that are covalently attached to proteins. They play a crucial role in various biological processes and can significantly impact protein structure, stability, and function. Our protein glycoengineering service provides customized solutions for the modification of glycans to enhance protein properties and optimize their performance in specific applications.

The two most common types of glycosylation are N- and O-linked glycosylation.(B Ma, et al.,2020)The two most common types of glycosylation are N- and O-linked glycosylation.(B Ma, et al.,2020)
