Re: N-linked oligosaccharides

1) Is the oligosaccharide underivatised, permethylated or peracetylated? 2) Would you like me to tell you the mass values as monoisotopic or average? SO: 3) Tell me what oligosaccharide and I'll guide you through it.

Diff b/w: monosaccharide, oligosaccharide, polysaccharide?

Please help me understand! I'm in grade 12 bio, and I don't get the difference. Mainly between oligo and poly.

What makes a polysaccharide?

oligosaccharide is usually taken as 2-10, so anything larger should be polysaccharide ;)
