Research Interests:

  • I'm a researcher who working on glycobiology, is the study on the structure, function and biology of carbohydrate molecules, also called glycans.
  • This growing research field in biology is relevant with many biology-based researches including biomedicine, biotechnology and other omics.
  • The glycan structures have many functional properties in cell biology such as cell-cell and cell-pathogen interactions.
  • At this point, my main research area contains the possible relations between programmed cell death types and cell surface glycan alterations during the embryonic development.  
  • We found that glycosylation patterns of developing thymocytes are altered throughout the developmental process.
  • With the our lectin blotting results, I consider that these differences of glycosylation may be related with glycosylation status of CD43 and CD45, receptors for galectin-1, a β-galactoside-binding protein that is produced by thymic epithelial cells and binds to oligosaccharides on thymocytes and induce cell death
