Chemical Oligosaccharides, Branched-Chain

Name Oligosaccharides, Branched-Chain
Equivalent Term Branched-Chain Oligosaccharides
Definition Oligosaccharides containing various types of glycosidic linkages that yield branching or antennae. The number of antennae (such as bi-, tri-, tetra-, or penta-antennary) in the oligosaccharides on the PROTEOGLYCANS; GLYCOPROTEINS; or LIPOPOLYSACCHARIDES contribute to their biological activities, such as receptor binding and metabolism.
