Abstract:
Carbohydrate-Carbohydrate interactions (CCIs) operate in a number of biologically significant environments. These carbohydrate based interactions on cell surfaces, which have been shown to be highly specific and polyvalent, are believed to mediate cell recognition and adhesion within biological processes. Two synthetic glycosylated scaffolds have been synthesised as model systems and the scaffolds chosen were designed to orientate interacting carbohydrates close in space to one another thereby allowing the study of these important CCIs.
