Protein glycosylation, the process by which proteins add sugar side chains to their amino acids, is the most widespread modification of proteins. However, tools to precisely study the function of glycosylation in health and disease are lacking. Anthony will be using chemically modified sugars developed in the Bertozzi lab to investigate the mechanism and importance of protein glycosylation.
