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.
