Advances in mass spectrometry-based glycoproteomics: An update covering the period 2017-2021

Protein glycosylation is one of the most common posttranslational modifications, and plays an essential role in a wide range of biological processes such as immune response, intercellular signaling, inflammation, host-pathogen interaction, and protein stability. Glycoproteomics is a proteomics subfield dedicated to identifying and characterizing the glycans and glycoproteins in a given cell or tissue. Aberrant glycosylation has been associated with various diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, viral infections, inflammation, immune deficiencies, congenital disorders, and cancers.
