Glycosylation is the binding of carbohydrate molecules to proteins .is a post translational modification which provides greater proteomic diversity than other post translational modifications. Glycosylation is critical for a wide range of biological processes, including cell attachment to the extracellular matrix and protein-ligand interactions in the cell. Glycosylation types are classified based on the identity of the atom of the amino acid which binds the carbohydrate chain, i.e. C-linked, N-linked or O-linked. N- and C-glycosylation take place.
