Glyco-engineering of proteins

Glyco-engineering of proteins is being developed as a method to control the composition of glycans on glycoproteins. Such methods are of great importance in the biopharmaceutical industry because glyocoproteins constitute over 60% of all approved therapeutic proteins; and the therapeutic properties of many glycoproteins strongly depend on the composition of their glycans.
