Chemoenzymatic Labeling of Cell-surface Glycans: Methods and Applications
Peng Wu, Professor, Department of Molecular Medicine, The Scripps Research Institute

Metabolic oligosaccharide engineering and chemoenzymatic glycan labeling have provided powerful tools to study glycans in living organisms and tissue samples. In this talk, I will discuss our recent progress towards the development of methods for cell-surface chemoenzymatic glycan labeling. The applications include analyzing changes of glycosylation patterns during disease progression and boosting the activities of cells in the immune system.
