Glycobiology research: computer graphics representation of the molecular structure of bi- antenarase, an oligosaccharide (short-chain sugar) complex of THY-1, a glycoprotein. THY-1 is the smallest member of the immunoglobulin superfamily (the group of glycoproteins that includes antibodies), and is a major cell-surface glycoprotein of thymocytes and brain cells. Colour coding: the sugar part is in yellow, protein in green. This image was produced at the Glycobiology Unit in the University of Oxford, where research is conducted into the body's sugar chemistry & its relationship to disease.
