Announcement of Publication of Article on Glycans
GlyTech, Inc. is pleased to announce that an international joint research group, including Chief Scientist Katsunori Tanaka of the Biofunctional Synthetic Chemistry Laboratory at RIKEN (Institute of Physical and Chemical Research), have clusterized GlyTech “asparagine-linked glycans (N-linked glycan)” of various structures attached to albumin, and managed to control their elimination route inside mice. Additionally, the resulting glycoclusters were found to show high specificity for particular liver cells. Their findings have been published in Scientific Reports, a British online scientific journal (February 23).
