Research outline

Areas of research interest:

1. Tumor cell biology

2. Protein glycosylation in cell biology

Glycosylation of proteins is one of the most common post-translational modification. It creates diverse proteoforms with different functions and greatly amplifies the proteome. The known glycan structures of proteins are generated through 14 different glycosylation pathways, including N-glycosylation, 11 types of O-glycosylation, C-mannosylation and generation of GPI-anchored proteins. To date, there are at least 168 distinct glycosyltransferases were discovered to conduct these protein glycosylation pathways. Plenty of studies elucidated that aberrant expression of these glycosyltransferases was associated with malignancy in many cancers. However, the specific underlying mechanisms of these glycosyltransferases in cancers remain unknown, it is worth investigating its specific role in cancers.
