Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Glycobiology research. Scientist using equipment for the rapid evaporation of oligosaccharides in solutions of alcohol & water. Rapid drying is achieved by constant agitation or rotation under vacuum, using an infrared heater to prevent condensation on the glass tubes. The location of sugars (oligosaccharides) on proteins, on cell surfaces, antigens & antibodies, is crucial to how these molecules behave in the body. Here at the Glycobiology Unit at Oxford University, the novel techniques necessary for studying these complex structures have been developed. Research progresses as to the role of these sugars in rheumatoid arthritis & AIDS.
