Articles on the structure, characteristics, function and mode of action of carbohydrates
Carbohydrate Biochemistry Articles
This article reviews large-scale techniques for accelerating progress in glycobiology.
Energy from the sun and carbon dioxide fuel photosynthesis in plants and algae, making life on earth possible. Carbon that is fixed by plants is converted to starch and sucrose, which are utilized by plants for energy and to build biomass.
Researchers found that HIV, aggressive cancer cells, H. pylori, and parasitic worms known as schistosomes carry the same carbohydrate sequences as many proteins produced in human sperm.
A leading Yorkshire scientist is trying to develop new drugs by synthesising different forms of the special sugars found in cancer cells.
Researchers have developed a new way of detecting the abnormal presence of complexes of sugars and proteins in the blood of cancer patients, thus providing a new tool for cancer diagnosis.
In order to provide the most effective treatments for cancer patients, it is essential to develop methods of sensitive and specific early detection of the disease.
Scientists have begun to unlock the secrets of starches - knowledge that could pave the way for a new generation of more healthful carbohydrates
Researchers in Switzerland are reporting discovery of natural plant materials that may regulate starch digestion -- slowing down the body's conversion of potatoes, rice, and other carbohydrate-rich foods into sugar.
USC structural biologists reveal workings of nicotine receptor in 'landmark accomplishment'
This is the first study to determine whether elevated glucose or insulin as measured when or shortly after a patient has had polyps removed during a baseline colonoscopy procedure increases their risk for subsequent recurrence of pre-cancerous growths in
Findings point to possible new treatment target for obesity and diabetes
Scientific research on carbohydrate consumption, glycemic index and body weight and gives the first detailed review of the literature on the correlation between them.
A new national network of chemists and biologists is planning to open up a vital area of chemistry that could have major implications for the drug, food and agrochemical industries.
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and its associated vision loss may be connected to the quality of carbohydrates an individual consumes
Rhizopus oryzae glucoamylase (RoGA) consists of three domains: an amino (N)-terminal raw starch-binding domain (SBD), a glycosylated linker domain, and a carboxy (C)-terminal catalytic domain.
Sequence and structural features of carbohydrate binding in proteins and assessment of predictability using a neural network
Protein-Carbohydrate interactions are crucial in many biological processes with implications to drug targeting and gene expression.
Carbohydrate restriction improves the features of Metabolic Syndrome. Metabolic Syndrome may be defined by the response to carbohydrate restriction
Metabolic Syndrome represents a constellation of markers that indicates a predisposition to diabetes, cardiovascular disease and other pathologic states.
Tumor-associated gangliosides are carbohydrate self-antigens very poorly immunogenic
The authors made a detailed comparison of the core oligosaccharide units from intracellular and extracellular mannoproteins.
Studies in the Biochemistry of Oral Tissue: III. Pathways of Carbohydrate Metabolism in Bovine Attached Gingiva
The present study aimed to determine physiologic and metabolic processes in human gingival tissue to discover how these processes are altered during the induction of periodontal disease.
