Investigating viral glycosylation pathways for drug and vaccine development

Abstract:

Glycosylation is the most common protein co- and post-translational modification. It has crucial functions for glycoprotein folding, structure, trafficking, localisation and stability. Glycosylation is not only critical for eukaryotic cell function but vital for many enveloped viruses which have evolved to exploit the host cell glycosylation pathway in order to fold their proteins correctly and coat many of their surface proteins with glycans that can contribute to viral pathogenesis. Vacc...
