GlyGen is a data integration and dissemination project for carbohydrate and glycoconjugate related data. GlyGen retrieves information from multiple international data sources and integrates and harmonizes this data. This web portal allows exploring this data and performing unique searches that cannot be executed in any of the integrated databases alone.
What are the enzymes involved in the biosynthesis of glycan X in human? Which proteins have been shown to bear glycan X and which site is this glycan attached to? What are the orthologues of protein X and how does a glycosylation site and glycan structure change in different species? Which glycans might have been synthesized in mouse using enzyme X? What are the glycosyltransferases in species X ? Which glycosyltransferases are known to be involved in disease X?
