Glycoproteins are complex macromolecules composed of a protein core combined with carbohydrate molecules. They are found in all organisms and have an important role in many processes, including maintaining cell structure, regulating hormones, and delivering messages between cells. Additionally, they are essential components of the immune system and can be used to detect the presence of infection or disease. Glycoproteins play a vital role in modern medical diagnosis, treatment, and prevention, and are increasingly employed in research and development of pharmaceutical drugs, vaccines, and regenerative medicine.
