Synthesis and Structural Properties of Neoglycolipids Anchored at Membrane Surfaces
Published: 11 September 2000 by MDPI in The 4th International Electronic Conference on Synthetic Organic Chemistry session Bioorganic Chemistry and Natural Products
Abstract: Glycolipids cover the surface of living cells and determine their properties in cell-adhesion processes. The extremely complex and heterogeneous native cell membrane forbids the functional characterization of individual glycolipid components. Homogeneous neoglycolipids on model membranes reduce the complex native glycocalix to its essential features.
