Glycobiology Of Food


Plants use carbon dioxide and water to produce glucose through the process of photosynthesis. The combination of glucose with other monosaccharide gives starch and cellulose. Energy is stored in plants in form of carbohydrate, thus carbohydrate is known as the energy giving food. The energy giving food is composed majorly of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen and has the general molecular formula Cx(H20)y. Carbohydrates can be classified naturally into simple sugar which include the monosaccharide e.g. glucose, fructose, mannose and galactose, the disaccharides (formed from the condensation of two monosaccharide with the loss of a water molecule) e.g. sucrose, maltose and lactose. Complex sugar also called polysaccharides (formed from the condensation of more than two monosaccharide) e.g. starch, glycogen and cellulose. Carbohydrate is commonly, found on fruits, sap of plants e.g. tuber plants and grain crops. And also in honey.

Glycobiology is the study of the structure, biosynthesis, chemical synthesis and biology of saccharide (sugar chains or glycans). The importance of sugar can never be over emphasized since it is an essential component of living organism and it serves as the major sources of energy. According to the research done by various fields like medical, biochemical and biotechnological field sugar plays an important role in biology.

In the broadest sense glycobiology can be defined as the study of the roles of carbohydrates in cellular life. Often they are continently bound to proteins (glycoproteins) and lipids (glycololipids to form glycoconjugates. Many glycol conjugates have structural roles. However, the carbohydrates groups of gylycoconjugates also can be involved in cellular processes including adhesion, transformation, growth, endocytosis and fertilization.

Chapter One

1.0 Occurrence and Production

The occurrence of glycobiology in the living cells include the following.

  1. The outer membrane of all living cells in nature is majorly composed of a dense and complex array of sugar chains (glycans).
  2. Many classes of glycans and glycoconjugates is found on the bacteria and archea cell walls.
  3. In eukaryotic organism most of proteins been secreted contains very large amount of covalently bond glycans.
  4. Also in eukaryotes, the cells surface and secreted glycans are mostly assembled via the Endoplasmic Reticulum – Golgi pathway.
  5. When the extracellular matrix of eukaryotes are viewed it is found out that it is rich in secreted glycan.
  6. Eukaryotes also possess cytosolic and nuclear glycans.

Glycobiology Of Food


This research material “Glycobiology Of Food” is for research purposes and should be used as a guide in developing your research project / seminar work. For no reason should you copy word for word (verbatim) as will not be liable for any who copied the material.

The aim of providing this material is to reduce the stress of moving from one school library to another all in the name of searching for research materials. This service is legal because, all institutions permit their students to read previous projects, books, articles or papers while developing their own works. According to Austin Kleon “All creative work builds on what came before”. is only providing this material “Glycobiology Of Food” as a reference for your research. The paper should be used as a guide or framework for your own paper. The contents of this paper should be able to help you in generating new ideas and thoughts for your own research. Use it as a guidance purpose only.

How to defend your research work

This is a general guide on how to defend your research work:

1. Prepare For Questions:

If you are preparing for questions that may be asked during your defense, then your answers will flow smoothly and effectively. This will prove your knowledge on the subject e.g “Glycobiology Of Food“, and strengthening your argument. Ask friends and family, read your work for them to listen to your presentation, and write down questions. You may be lucky the panel will ask you those you have already prepared on.

2. Strong Summary:

Summarizing your chapters will help keep your audience focused because it is easy for a mind to drift, so providing summaries will ensure your panel will follow along, even if they lose focus for a brief moment. Visual aides, such as graphs and power-point presentations can be very helpful. If you are going to use these, make sure you will practice your presentation with them.

3. Be Confident in Your Research Work:

Not knowing your topic “Glycobiology Of Food” inside out will cause you to struggle and ultimately fail with your defense. You need to know the subject from every angle to ensure you are fully prepared for any question that may come your way.

4. Conclusion:

Reinforce your findings to conclude your defense. The finale of your presentation should focus on proving the work that has been done. You may need to recap on what has changed and remained unchanged, if is necessary.

5 . Listen:

Before you get defensive or recite a particular answer, make sure you truly understand the question being asked. Being a good listener is an important quality, because providing an inaccurate or off-topic answer will also weaken the validity of your paper.
