Sugars Get an ‘Ome’ of Their Own

With advanced synthesis and detection techniques, the pace of glycomics research accelerates | August 2nd, 2004 | By Megan M. Stephan

To the lay public, sugars are the villains behind expanding waistlines and rotting teeth, and until recently, the view from the lab bench was not much different.  Sugars were considered so irrelevant, says Massachusetts Institute of Technology researcher Ram Sasisekharan, that biochemists “mainly developed tools to remove them from proteins they were studying.”

Today, however, the mood is decidedly different. Sugars, or more properly, the complex sugars called glycans, are now recognized as critical mediators of cell-cell communication, playing roles in cancer, infection, immunity, and even the interactions between egg and sperm. Full Article

International Journal of Anatomy, Embryology and Cell Biology. “Glycosylation is the most common form of protein and lipid modification but its biological significance has long been underestimated. The last decade, however, has witnessed the rapid emergence of the concept of the sugar code of biological information. Mono-saccharides represent an alphabet of biological information similar to amino acids and nucleic acids but with unsurpassed coding capacity.”

“Sweet Medicine: Building Better Drugs from Sugars.”  Sugars play critical roles in many cellular functions and in disease.  Study of those activities lags behind research into genes and proteins but is beginning to heat up.  The discoveries promise to yield a new direction in medicine, and a change in paradigm to one of wellness.

“Changing Cancer Cells’ ‘Surface Sugars’ Can Inhibit Tumor Growth.”

Medicine, Jan. 22, 2002

“The key to halting cancer cells may lie in their sugary coats”, scientists say. Carbohydrate molecules surround all cells and help them to identify and interact with one another. Now new research, published today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, indicates that altering some of the surface sugars associated with cancer cells can control tumor growth. The findings suggest that the sugars could one day serve as targets for new anti-cancer therapies

Harpers Biochemistry

A medical textbook that has been educating healthcare professionals about Glyconutrients and their role in health and healing since 1996. From a clinical perspective, one class of nutrients absolutely necessary for optimal cellular communication and which is essentially missing from our food supply is glyconutrients. These are necessary carbohydrates (mono-saccharides) that according to the 1996 edition of Harper’s Biochemistry, only 2 or 3 of the necessary 8 are commonly found in our diet. These mono saccharides provide the necessary building blocks that enable the cells of our body to communicate effectively.

Biologists are only just beginning to get to grips with these sugars, but as they do they are finding themselves having to rethink long-held ideas about how life works. “This is going to be the future,” declares biochemist Gerald Hart of Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. “We won’t understand immunology, neurology, developmental biology or disease until we get a handle on glycobiology.”

Scientific American

~ September-October 2003. “The Sweet Science of Glycobiology” Complex carbohydrates, molecules that are particularly important for communication among cells, are coming under systematic study.

Carbohydrates are indispensable to life on Earth. In their simplest form, they serve as a primary energy source for sustaining life. For the most part, however, carbohydrates exist not as simple sugars but as complex molecular conjugates, or glycans. Glycans come in many shapes and sizes, from linear chains (polysaccharides) to highly branched molecules bristling with antennae-like arms. And although proteins and nucleic acids such as DNA have traditionally attracted far more scientific attention, glycans are also key to life. They are ubiquitous in nature, forming the intricate sugar coat that surrounds the cells of virtually every organism and occupying the spaces between these cells. As part of this so-called extracellular matrix, glycans, with their diverse chemical structures, play a crucial role in transmitting important biochemical signals into and between cells. In this way, these sugars guide the cellular communication that is essential for normal cell and tissue development and physiological function.
