Abstract

Most proteins within living organisms contain glycans. Glycan structures can modulate the biological properties and functions of glycoproteins. The major glycans of glycoproteins can be classified into two groups, N-glycans and O-glycans, according to their glycan-peptide linkage regions. This review will give an outline of the O-mannosyl glycans; structure, biosynthesis, function, and pathology.
