Abstract:

Glyconanoparticles are very useful tools for proteomic and glycomics research. They mainly contain glycosylated gold nanoparticles, glycosylated quantum dots, and magnetic glyconanoparticles. This review summarized the glyconanoparticle progress on biolabeling, in vitro or in vivo imaging, biosensing, targeted drug delivery, and other biomedical applications in recent years. The core of glyconanoparticle applications is to study the carbohydrate-mediated interactions, which opens the new field in glycobiology.

Keywords: Gold glyconanoparticles, glycosylated quantum dots, magnetic glyconanoparticles, applications, proteomic, glycomics research, targeted drug delivery, biosensing, carbohydrate-mediated interactions, glycobiology
